SIT UP! (2021)
artist book, 148mm*210mm*4mm

In SIT UP!(2021), I invited children from different grades randomly as my photographic subject. They were asked to sit in a “relaxed” posture when I took pictures. The chairs in the pictures were removed in post process to highlight the children’s gendered and performative sitting postures which had been acquired through training. I chose to present the pictures in the form of a book which is generally regarded as the visual representative of “education”. The pictures were sorted by ascending order in the book according to the children’s grades. The book was divided into two parts from the middle. Different pages of the parts can be combined to form a new picture when you read the book. Consequently, the difference in sitting postures between different gender and age was shown obviously.
