Working with objects, images and videos, Tingwei is interested in phenomenon and core values in contemporary life. By addressing how human consciousness and behavior have been changed in consumer society, she deals with contemporary subject centered issues such as the self-optimization and the 'flexible ego' under conditions of marketing. As kind of artistic research, her work undertakes a mental archeology of digital medium and its influence on our minds and bodies.
In her videos, Tingwei Li creates complex narratives often interlacing and juxtaposing events and mystifications, unwrapping many semantical layers. And what seems to be sometimes a Theatre of the Absurd, is a reality depiction in focus, and a thoroughly elaborated approach of working with various visual languages, textures and approaches of the perceptual psychology.
