Curatorial Statement:

Alice, Wake Up, originates from the classic fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. At the end of the story, the self-awakening of Alice enables herself to escape from the wonderland and return to the physical world. The artists create the seemingly harmless, innocent, and humorous works as victims, bystanders or healers to criticize and question families, societies, others, and even selves, inadvertently or intentionally inflict physical or mental harm on the objects. From the perspective of self-analysis, social practice, and theoretical research, this exhibition reveals the close internal relationship between public, private, physical, spiritual, and environmental.
