Yuxuan Gong

“I am Yuxuan Gong, a spirited artist and fashion designer with dual roots in the vibrant landscapes of New York and London. My creative journey is a whimsical exploration, a dance that unfolds on the canvas of garments, bringing forth tangible expressions of identity. In the realm of patternmaking, prints, and textiles, I find my truest form of artistic expression. Each stitch and brushstroke serves as a conduit, capturing the very essence of my imaginative perspective.”

The relationship between humans and virtual pets reflects that in the postmodern society, the way people communicate, build relationships and consume objects has changed, objects are disposable and relationships are perishable. In the book do androids dream of electric sheep? People live in a dystopian society where a huge nuclear war happens and most creatures go extinct. So it became fashionable and also costly to own a real animal as a pet, many people couldn’t afford it, so they bought realistic-looking robot imitations of real animals and treated them as real pets.

In a postmodern society, connection to the body becomes more alienated and humans see reflections of themselves through digital portals, having split minds inside a digital landscape. Virtual pets are realistic in appearance, but in general, are just some programs and algorithms, but they can generate real emotions and empathy, offering a sense of companionship. Through this fashion collection, I want to portray a community that is being trapped by all the mixed conflicting emotions, and being manipulated by artificial intelligence. Developing technology brings people closer to each other, but humans are even more lonely and vulnerable than ever.

“My work is a manifestation of an innate quirkiness that breathes life into fabrics, transforming them into more than mere clothing – they become wearable narratives. I invite you, the wearer, to join me in this intimate dialogue between art and identity. My creations seamlessly fuse the tangible and the intangible, offering a unique opportunity to embrace a wearable narrative. Through my art, I extend an invitation to explore and celebrate the amalgamation of self-expression and fashion, where every piece carries the heartbeat of my creative soul.”

Her work seeks to extract seemingly mundane moments to amplify them into absurdity. In her photographic series, she offers reflective presentations that interrogate the interplay between permanence and transience, as well as reality and idealization, underpinned by philosophical inquiries.

    "My art-making emerges as poignant expressions of ineffable yearning. Each crafted curve and enigmatic form become models of my emotions, a visual poem encapsulating the essence of my longing. Themes of "missing" reverberate through my work - whether it’s an empty hook, drawer, or cradle - all serve as metaphors for the profound gaps within the human experience. It symbolizes the absence of function, the lack of context, and the void of knowledge; it is a reminder of the uprooted aspects of our lives". Read more
