In the exhibition "Ongoing Narratives - Go Left, Go Right or Go to the Other Side," Yi Hsuan employs a playful manner to arrange found, disposable objects and her body into assemblages, which she then photographs into still-life and self-portraits for presenting across two-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces. Some of these objects are displayed within the gallery space, supplementing the already visceral experiences of viewing strange photographic yet intimate objects with an added layer of theatrical embodiment.

Through her lens, Yi Hsuan transforms once unwanted objects into seductive, whimsical, and fluid narratives, evoking moments of both amusement and bewilderment. She carefully manipulates scale, perspective, and composition to redefine the significance and essence of these objects. The mundane transcends into the extraordinary as the objects adopt performative qualities, blurring the boundaries between - object and body, human and non-human, animate and inanimate. This metamorphosis gives rise to a feminine and psychological landscape where the body serves as a symbolic bridge between disparate elements.

Exploring relationships between objects, bodies, and their environments, Yi Hsuan tempts viewers to reconsider their perceptions of reality and imagination. She invites a deeper reflection on the intricacies of existence and the interconnectedness of all things.
