Artwork Appreciation
HOU I-Ting’s artworks are investigations of diversity and co-existence between the visualized context of body and cultural symbols through public spaces. In Complexing Body-Doberman and Romeo, she photographs herself in an old, traditional market. Traditional symbols and elements of western art are then used as a reference and directly embroidered onto the image. The surroundings and background of the image shows a traditional market that has yet to be fully capitalized. Icons and symbols of different cultures are inserted into an environment frequented by common people to investigate diverse co-existence of different cultural symbols from different times when the original stream of iconology has been severed.
