The dependence of my self-existence on others is the reason why I am holding on to the relationship although it is hurting me. It falls to a conflict of holding on to an illusion of self-existence and its damage to my actual existence. In the series of moving images, Hold/Held, I use mirror to stand for the fragile relationship as a mediation for self-existence. The physical state where the body cannot move unless dropping and breaking the mirror held on to is inspired by Erwin Wurm’s photographic sculptures. The capture of separate body parts fits better in the idea of using pieces of mirror to see oneself and creates a sense of fragmented existence instead of wholeness, which shows the body lacks self-domination further. The position is set to be holding and kissing that indicates the theme of relationship. The use of the medium of moving images instead of still images demonstrates the difficulty of holding better.
