What’s the space that belongs to you?

Yanze Wang


A lot of young people live away from their hometown and move residence frequently because of studying, working or travelling. It is hard for them to retain a sense of belonging. They cannot buy things they like very much because they know when they move next time, they need to throw them away. I want to show the feeling of loneliness and anxiety. We are all lonely.

There are four more pieces of work in this series, Displacement, and this piece is the first one. In the last piece, the girl in this painting walks outside of her limited space and chases the larger world.
