About the excluded unthought-of things

In the form of canvas or sculpture, artist Na Gu records the memories which are being forgotten, fragments in the storage and useless sundries in daily life. In this record intervened by subjective interpretation, it is hard to read the complete substance. The figures in the canvas lack eyes, noses, and mouths, and their bodies are flowing down, but each one firmly reveals his or her existence in a dim space. Moreover, the useless sundries around our settings (an error image on a computer, withered leaves, and leftovers of milk, etc.) are connected to other traces. This can also mean that the incomplete inner deficiency plays a role as a feasibile condition of life.
