Fit

2014, DordtYart Art Center, Dordrecht, Netherlands
Materials: fabric, thread, wire, paper, aluminum and MDF

Fit is an installation consisting six custom-made white shirts, each differs in fabric and style. A pliable body shape is formed when each shirt is hung on a cage-like hanger made of sixteen wires. It expresses the idea of the difference and similarity between people and implies the identity of the individual is shaped and resembled by the social and cultural customs.
Everyday, we shift our role between a unique individual and a team player. The content of being different and the sense of security from fitting in a group are both essential. Through this work, Meng attempts to explore the delicate balance between the two.
It is an eternal search of while mingling with the crowds, how we can uphold the distinct qualities within us.
