About The Bliss of Conformity
The Bliss of Conformity is a photography-based mixed-media series that combines elements of video, installation and artist’s book. In this work, Guo Yingguang explores arranged marriages in China and the emotionally distant coexistence between arranged couples from both abstract and concrete viewpoints. Starting from her own individual experience and the contemporary social experience at large, Guo Yingguang combines documentary photography and creative artistic practices to create carefully constructed, highly contrasted visual structures that challenge stereotypical notions of women in a complex socio-cultural consciousness. - Curator statement
