SHI Zhen

Kwei yih

France/Chine

2017 - Sélection du jury

Kwei Yih is a project deeply rooted in the artist’s personal experience. After many years of roaming away from home, she finds herself falling into a state of anxiety and helplessness, eagerly looking to regain a sense of belonging. However, it is such a complicated emotion. She can still call it a feeling of happiness when the nostalgia and homesickness come to her which will never be like a floating weed or a falling leaf, as home always lies silently within somewhere deep in heart.
