From the works of their contemporaries, these six curators discovered sensuous observations on life, self-reflection of the individuals, and their somewhat bewildering imaginations about the present and the future. These contemplations on reality, profound and romantic, inspired the curators to adopt H. Christian Andersen's (1805-1875) story published in Copenhagen's Children's Illustrated in 1871, Dance! Dance! Doll of Mine! (Danish: Danse, danse Dukke min) as the title of the exhibition. In Anderson's story, the children play with their dolls, singing and dancing. Yet the joy that belongs only to the children and their dolls cannot reach their aunt, which is delightful and unique. The riddle-like conversations between them lead to the pleasure beyond words.
In this exhibition, the dolls do not simply refer to toys that embody human or animals characters, but the individual who is gradually lost and assimilated through gazing, fantasizing, manipulating and performing. Dance here refers to the stretching or twisting of body under the spotlight, as much as the artists' vision of possible solutions through self-exploration and social experimentation. Among the works by the artists born between 1990 and 2000, we discover the younger generations' self-perception, view of the world and visions for the future, prismatic of the diverse and complex portrayal of human syndromes.
