This is an exhibition of two artists: one works with visual, two-dimensional images, the other makes three-dimensional works.
Nicole Teng, the three-dimensional artist from Taiwan has lived in Shanghai for six years. She always claim that Shanghai inspires her creative potential, which in recent years is embroiled in dramaticchange from old to new, gives her an endless source of inspiration. In this process of change, many old items were forgotten and seeing the hidden soul in such waste materials, each with their different styles, Nicole has through her making, has renewed their respective original character once again. Revitalised in this new shining world, one cannot but be reminded of Alice tumbling into a Wonderland through the hole in the tree. The expansion into another space, another adventure, is also a way to convey the meaning of this exhibition.
The theme of the exhibition "parallel world", reminds Fukuda Sakae from Japan that she used to imagine being in another world while in bed when she was little; she being more wise, more beautiful and more talented than her boring self in this real world. To imagine yourself that you might be someone in another place might suggest self-loathing, anxiety and immaturity in childhood.
Fukuda Sakae depicts unexpected overlapping scenes that normally could never cross in parallel worlds. But rather than an ideal present many children like to imagine in bed, the girls she draws appear as sullen as their real selves.
Indeed, as adults we know that our selves in that world is the same existence as our selves with our many troubles in this world.
