My name is Song Guoxi, I come from China, and I have a great passion for manga, anime, games, and online literature. They have deeply influenced my perception of the world and society. Over time, my research has gradually expanded to encompass the field of pop culture, where I explore the social structures and ideologies reflected within.
Initially, my focus was primarily on feminism and intimate relationships, examining gender power dynamics from the perspectives of marriage and family. Now, I am merging feminism with pop culture to deconstruct it through a gender lens.
I tend to work in an interdisciplinary way and most of my works are made with a combination of mixed materials and eventually presented as installations, posters, or video. I maintain a practice of using hand drawing and handcrafting combined with multimedia technology to create my work.
In my exploration of popular culture, I am also delving into the power of femininity. I have noticed the prevalence of the portrayal of the "evil feminine" in numerous narratives within popular culture. However, I perceive this power, which is often labeled and vilified by patriarchal norms, as a sacred energy. It is this traditional representation of feminine power that I have chosen to wield as my weapon against modern patriarchal society. Consequently, my various works incorporate metaphors of witchcraft rituals, enchantments, and natural energy.
