ABOUT THE BOOK
Perfect Pearl is about chasing love and the friction between dream and hard reality. ‘The picture perfect life’. What we desire or what we think we should desire. Despite its cultural definitions and particularities, love is a universal desire that allowed me to identify with these Chinese women in their early twenties. My friendships resulted in a collaboration where I interweave my own poetic observations with the thoughts and feelings of my young Chinese friends
In the book PERFECT PEARL the different layers of online and offline, inner and outer world and dream versus reality are expressed through a special folding technique. The intimate inner world is hidden behind the fold of the book. The foreword was written by the Chinese curator Yining He. The photos in the book are accompanied by gathered personal intimate WeChat moments that have been made anonymously. One of the main characters and friend Lova, wrote a metaphorical story about love ‘I have a Dragon’.
