Luca Curci – What is art for you?

Jiaqing Mo – Art is therapeutic way for me. Many art works of mine are about treating people and psychological journey… I knit clips together in my art works to show how I am thinking and how the world I created.

LC – Which subject are you working on?

JM – I am working on film, photography, installation and performance…. My subject is fine art, and I used a lot of philosophy and psychology to making script, then use my personal visual way to showing it.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?

JM – I think Artist is kind of sculpting and reflecting the society, we are not only making works to show for people, we are also reflecting human ecology and social condition by even unconsciousness. And the contemporary art as well, it is showing the moment condition, past, and future.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

JM – I would like to analyze all the subject, such as sociology, anthropology, architecture, music. My position is director in my work, I always record all the details and clips, then finally connect them together.

JM – Not really, in early age, I was making experimental film, now I am change to more mixed type, film with installation and with performance.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the contest?

JM – Yes, I think artist need more possibilities and opportunities to be succeed.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this event? How is it connected to the theme of the contest?

LC – What is your idea about ITSLIQUID GROUP?

JM – It gives artist opportunities to showing their works for public and international, but i wish the entrance fee could be more easy-going as being artist is really difficult, maybe it can make some level of artists type.
