Dialogue with the Body

Dialogue with the Body consists of these five works which are the product of a progression in Nichole Li’s exploration of the relationship between herself and her body. The first three pieces  named ‘Sprouting’. ‘Sprouting’ represents the initial stage of Li’s relationship with her body, where she is simply impatient with some of the states that her body brings. At the same time, the curious and confused voices from the outside world gave her the desire to continue exploring the relationship.  The fourth piece is named ‘Tangle’. ‘Tangle’ builds on the former and allows Li to look more intensely at and examine the connection between her and my body. At this stage, her emotions towards her body rose to anger, hatred and even disgust, and Li saw this as a struggle. But thankfully, Li didn’t ignore the benefits that hwe body brought to her, which may have been the opportunity for transformation after this relationship. The fifth piece is named ‘Reconnecting’. ‘Reconnecting’ is currently the third phase of Li’s exploration and reflection on her relationship with her body and means to Li what its name suggests; it is the product of Li’s attempt to re-establish her relationship with the parts of my body that have left her. They should not be neglected and abandoned as parts of her body that she once had the closest relationship with, even if they are not part of her body now. Li wants to convey this message to the audience through this work, that by participating, feeling and experiencing this funeral, they have the possibility to develop a new awareness and reflection on the relationship between their own bodies. The relationship with the body is often different for each person at each time, and the body, as the closest part of us, needs to be noticed and valued.
