EMPATHY

March 17 @ 9:00 am - March 20 @ 5:00 pm

ARTIST, NANXI AI

About the Exhibition

The ability for empathy is a gift, a connection of individuals. Psychology theorists have conceptualized empathy in many different ways. Fleiss describes empathy as putting oneself into another’s place or to “step into his shoes’’.

However, due to the unpredictability of the word, people do not have control of the present, nor do we fit into others’ shoes. It has enlightened me as an artist to meditate on and transform the cognition into an aesthetic experience.

The exhibition is my exploration toward empathy; it is a range of installations that emphasize the limitations of comprehending affective signals, and the relationship between the agency, wearable pieces, and our body under the frame of contemporary art.

I believe facing the complexity of human nature is crucial for achieving self-growth; Empathy is to offer people a mirror and an experience to understand our subconscious in the empathic process.
