The Pleasure: Different cultural values are prone to misunderstandings and even conflicts due to cognitive differences. The artist created the artworks based on Ye Quan’s “Pilgrimage to Lingnan” – according to the artist, if what is written by Ye Quan described the superficial cognition of the Chinese to the Western customs, then he would like to use this misunderstanding of the West to create his artworks.
