My name is Audrey Kao now currently a language art teacher in Taiwan and also doing some art therapy learning. My BA was related in language education. I was interested in philosophy especially in the topic of aesthetic. I began my research in Lyotard’s postmodernism and specific dig in the topic about the idea of “sublime”. After the graduate school, I entered University College London to complete my second Master in Museum and Galleries in Education. I began to self taught and started to do my experiment on creating artworks. In viewing of the definition of art, there are diverse interpretations and explanation from different groups. I never have formal training in creating art. For me, art is a simple, pure, creative and experimental way to experience and to praise us being a human. Art also plays a vital way for me to communicate with people. It’s a way for me to be bold and express my inner voices without any limitation. I love the process to create artworks also listen to people’s reactions to the artworks. The uncertainty always amazes me and inspires me to dig in more and more.
It’s great to have this chance to join the “Dressme” exhibition during the Milan Fashion Week. For me, fashion is never about only luxurious brands or high-end products or owns the most popular or limited edition. Fashion is about finding our own styles and expressing ourselves through cool design and artworks. It’s an emotional, rational, conscious and unconscious process for us to express ourselves. The three works I present this time are three of my favorite works and also were created in a strange period of my life. These three artworks were created contiguously and based on a story line for my self. This series of artworks is very emotional and personal but I am pleased to present here and wish to trigger more fascinating personal narratives.
