Director Statement

Xiaoyu1002 creates whimsical and tender bubbles to resist daily overwhelming absurdity around gender, identity, alienation, and contemporary culture, whilst countering through parody.

Xinyu XuXX’s practice focuses on feminist eroticism and cares about the erotic capacity to form connections - transmit energy and empathy across time/territory, creating a moment of intimacy. Her work is interested in how image as a non-human body creates visionary erotic experiences, as a method for activism, inhabiting space for those bodies behind it.
