I say Marco, you say Polo

/ School of Visual Arts, New York, USA, 2018

In 2018, I have spent a month attending an Artist in Residency in School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City, where an unforgettable place integrated with various art elements and professionals. I was grateful to discover the contemporary art scenes by walking along the city, and visiting exhibitions in diverse galleries and museums, to gain and absorb inspirations. Which I found these experiences are very useful for my practice, and I would like to seek for more opportunity to see things in different country.

At the end of the program, a solo exhibition was held in SVA titled “I say Marco, you say Polo”, which was inspired by a game that kids played in swimming pool when I was conducting my research in several swimming pools there. The set of works was my observation of New York swimming pool culture and my interpretation of my personal experiences in New York.
