In response to "involution," several new terms have emerged and gained traction on Chinese social media to describe different social reactions, including terms like "lying flat”, "letting it rot" and "45-degree life". These hot terms have sparked significant discussion throughout the country and serve as a profound reflection of China's deeply ingrained culture of intense competition. Having personally experienced this before coming to the UK, I can empathize with those currently facing these challenges. I believe it is crucial to shed light on this topic for the UK audience to gain a better understanding of Chinese society. Therefore, each painting in my show explores the social realities related to one of these terms.
