Experimental Relationship Vol.1/實驗性關係 Vol.1 (First Edition)

*Juror’s Special Mention in Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards 2018

As a woman brought up in China, I used to think I could only love someone who is older and more mature than me, who can be my protector and mentor. Then I met my current boyfriend, Moro. Since he is 5 years younger than me, I felt that whole concept of relationships changed, all the way around. I became the person who has more authority & power. One of my male friends even questioned how I could choose a boyfriend the way a man would choose a girlfriend. And I thought, "Damn right. That's exactly what I'm doing, & why not!"

I started to experiment with this relationship. I would set up all kinds of situations for Moro and I to perform in the photos. My photos explore the alternative possibilities of heterosexual relationships. They question what is the norm of heterosexual relationships. What will happen if man & woman exchange their roles of sex & roles of power. Because my boyfriend is Japanese, and I am Chinese, this project also describes a love and hate relationship.

This project is an ongoing project which grows with our real relationship but is never meant to be a documentation.

這本書主要是由2007年到2017年“實驗性關係”作品中的照片組成。

作為女性,我曾經以為我只能愛上一個比我更年長和更成熟的人、一個保護者、一個良師益友,直到我遇見了我現在的男友莫若。因為他比我小五歲,我理所當然的情侶關係徹底顛倒了。我變成了那個有更多權威和影響力的人。我的一位男性友人問我怎麼可以用和他選女友一樣的標準來挑選男友?我想,“對啊!這就是我在做的事情,為什麼不呢?!”

我開始認真思考起這段關係的重要意義,並用照片做起了實驗。莫若讓我認識到,男女關係並不需要一種固定模式。根據每個人的不同情況,任何兩個人結合都會產生不一樣的關係。即使這種關係和我們一般習慣的男女關係不同,也同樣可以存在,並且有它自己的優勢。做這個實驗的目的是打破固有的模式以期達到新的平衡點。因為莫若是日本人,我是中國人,這個系列也描述了一種愛恨交織的關係。

我打算只要我們還在一起就把這個作品一直拍下去。我希望這本書是一系列書中的第一本。
