It is said that the human brain has two functions. The left side is for thinking as a normal person, while the right for fantasising.
I always thought that I must be only using my right brain, since every single day, I live inside my fantasies. When I was a kid, I was already like this. I could be silent for a whole day, playing alone by acting two or more characters by myself. My Mum even got upset because of my quietness…
Actually, without a feeling of anything unusual, in my mind, I was feeling very great during that time. I was fantasising all the time…
What a wonderful thing it is to fantasise! You are creating your private space where you need no-one but yourself. You are enjoying your self-made movie, with lights, colours…and it is silent. It has facial expressions, dialogues, desires, obsessions, and daydreaming. It makes your heart beat faster and you get infinite joy from it…
You do not need to listen to any adult or teacher. “Students can sleep if the teacher does not give a good lecture.” In China, the bookworms say that in the world of books, there is a shade of jade. But in the world of fantasies, there is only jade?
I am blessed. Since my fantasies are too full to fill more in, I transfer them into boxes, making them into installations. Day by day, year after year, it becomes my exquisite, fantastic museum…
Crimson, seaweed green, charcoal grey, and a myriad of colourful lights. Inside, are my fantasies.
Qing Qing is a Chinese female artist in the field of installation art.
She is good at turning the foul and rotten into the rare and ethereal, using used items collected by her from here and there, thus creating her art productions with completely new, sensational feelings. In addition, she records in writing her unique life experience, and the causes of her art creation, in this way, comprehensively revealing the inner world of this female artist with delicate feelings.
This book contains the artist’s inspirations in the process of her art creation, and more importantly, the artist’s growth experience since her birth in the 1950s. The artist’s personal accounts in prose, combined with her fantastic installation art productions will certainly touch the heart of each reader.
