Tianlan Deng, a silver winner of 2019 annual group exhibition, had a solo show at J-Collabo.

My installation is a commentary on the de-individualization found in educational systems  present in China. While China’s education plays a significant role and influence on standardizing  the identity of China’s youth, I feel there is a parallel with the United States, where an increasing  number of charter schools are in favor of test-base education and militarized management,  leaving a stigma on generations of young students. Collectivism training and mass cultures are at  the core of political influencers. Through the repetition of individual form, my work presents the  complexity of these politics of the masses present in both the Asian and the Occidental political  structures, both supporting a greater whole hierarchy, leaving the individual with a general  feeling of emptiness. My work stems from a personal experience growing up in China, where I  have developed an ambivalent relationship between memorization and disconnection. This  exhibition “Scholastic Trauma” attempts to reconcile a symbiotic relationship between the  disciplined and the subliminal.

"Joy" is the theme that I chose for my artist in residence program at J-Collabo in Brooklyn. My art pieces present what each of us can do to find “Joy."
