Jiaxi Li: The Deepest Self

Jiaxi Li: The Deepest Self

Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

My works explore escapism as a self-protecting mechanism, in a biographical format. As a mortal existence, human beings inhabit and interact with spaces physically and spiritually. Brimming over with objects that allude to the deepest self, the domestic environment encloses the traces of humanity, history, and relationships. I have an ongoing interest in the tactile quality of knitting. My knitted sculptural works blur the undefined tension between reality and illusion.
