JOY LI, "The Skin of a Human Being", 2019, Archival Pigment Print, 17.5" x 63" - $6K Appraisal Value!



"My project "The Skin of a Human Being" discusses how people fit themselves  into a ready-made world—playing predetermined social characters,  wearing garments designed by me for this project, and agreeing with social  constructs, which brings a sense of security through certainty, but also  creates restrictions. The title refers to the social skin developed by constant  learning and imitating existing examples of behavior. We are living under  those social skins as though living under others’ experiences." - Joy Li
