CHANG En-Tzu

Fairy tale is the story that never ends in the reality of people’s surrounding. The subjects and images of fairy tales are embedded in our thinking and conversation, which signify our most aspiring desire and deepest expectation. 

In my recent works, I adapt Snow White as my main character, which is a well-known persona under globalisation, and use traditional stitching and embroidery as the method of working. The artworks express the look of lust and curious gestures due to the threads left on canvases. These images of princess though seem paradoxical and odd, not as pretty as in one’s imagination, and yet they are the real states that I intend to present. 

Hence, the fantasy of princess built by Disney is depicted and disassembled by the needle and yarn. Those colourful strings spreading into the real world are like wonderful imaginations/ paradoxes/ confrontations being released bit by bit; after vanishing, they then intertwine a more vibrantly beautiful world.
