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.
