"My main focus is on the tension between feminism and its cultural impact in my country."

I am a Chinese teacher who works in Jiangxi Science and Technology Normal University in Nanchang, China. I have graduated from Hangzhou Normal University and have got a master degree and bachelor degree there. Now I am studying MA Fine Art at the University of Southampton. The subject of my research is related to social gender, my outcomes refer to

videos, photographs and drawings, and installation art.

 

The reason why I was interested in “Identity” originated through my observation of family dynamics. Now my main focus is on the tension between feminism and its cultural influences within my country. At the beginning, I was just curious about unequally social distributions and opportunities in terms of gender. Actually, I have seen more possibilities in terms of both

positives and negatives in real life. The ‘One Child’ policy, new challenges and notions in marriage, made me think more deeply about gender roles and expectations. I deal with the actual issues in reality, but I am also challenging them for a better future.
