The show at Weekend Seoul marks the beginning of a series of artistic investigation in the tradition of Boy’s Love fiction. Originally from Japan and popularized through manga and the internet, Boy’s Love portrays romantic relationships between male characters for a female audience . Using sense of humor, digitally printed panels and music videos, the artist reimagines the power relationships in contemporary China and beyond as an attempt to cure the increasingly-felt helplessness in everyday life.
