Wang Rui’s artworks took inspiration from the plunge, deformation and other similar effects that images often encounter on the internet during the dissemination process, this is to symbolize the transformation and distortion of traditional history and culture in the process of dissemination. It reveals the so-called “truth” that remains difficult to be fully comprehended in humans continuous pursuit of open and transparent psychological vision.
In the creation of my artworks, I re-examine the events, works of art and people that have occurred in history. In front of them, I have a feeling of facing distant galaxies in the universe. When I received these messages, they were all over, and I could only stand at the current distance to imagine what it looked like when it happened. In my eyes, they must be completely different from those of the people at that time. These differences will definitely exist in both the past and the future. Similarly from this perspective, these events, works and characters, the universe is also constantly changing and expanding. It’s just that this change is not physical, but cultural. Perhaps these changes and expansions will help me recognize the reality of history, and the whole process allows me to reconsider the famous ultimate enquiry: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going?
