My solo multi-medium exhibition The Misplaced Contentment at Abject Gallery was the first great event I made in 2023, which was with great support of Breeze Creatives and funded by Sunderland Culture. The Misplaced Contentment is a drawing-video installation, a site mirroring my inner zoo, a place where the misplaced ‘creatures’ obtain their ‘lives’ under the audience’s gaze. It attempts to remind the audience how our indulgent gaze at a zoo and its animals can ‘fools us by normalising the strangeness of the enforced collages of distinct life forms regarding their biological difference. It invites the viewers to re-consider what is the ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ under the human’s gaze and its power on shaping the shifting boundaries in-between.
