Storytelling in Arts
Some people and stories
People and narratives are the core of my art practice. Compared with only exploring the subject matter, I am more excited about the characters and narratives around it. My media gradually shift from flat drawings or prints to installation, performance, and even explosions. Perhaps as a human myself, I like people a lot. There are always interesting stories where people go. The thesis discusses four stories, including an oral tale from my grandma, my personal experience, stories about bodies, and a story in the imagination. This writing reflects my research on the relationship between types of storytelling and various art forms.
This thesis is written in both Mandarin and English, with parallel concepts between two languages. Only reading one language will not affect the overall understanding of the whole thesis.
