Artist list

Dongyi Wu
Dongyi Wu's presentation at Equinox Gallery Daily Notes mainly features her recent three series of works: Passerby, Tired and No Longer Human.
Daily Notes are probably for repeatedly recording some of the things that seem to be useless. But they might remind people of the things that are mostly forgotten or ignored, which could be the treasure of our lives, says Wu.

Passerby shows people who walk on the streets with interesting clothes and accessories. By capturing their actions images and the wearing colors, Wu wants to show their lifestyle and some of their life attitude.

Series Works Tired share an interesting experience from Wu. She said: I felt very sleepy once an afternoon. I gradually felt my eyeballs were almost falling off from my eyes, and my eyelashes were also falling. Then I recorded the moment of feeling by my works. 

The inspiration of No Longer Human comes from the first three chapters of a Japanese Novel <No Longer Human>. It told a young man who tried to survive in a complex society. The salmon strip on the necklaces represents the young man's soul, and the other parts on works show the different surroundings that the young man may suffer.
