Yu Shen Li
Born in 1983 in Taipei, I started my creations of costume design in theatrical performing art in 2003. My fundamental training comes from two parts: Classic art painting that I learnt in school and costume production and tailoring that I've acquired from my parents' work. Both my parents are custom-made couturiers.
My earliest practice on dimensional structure is paper carving. I realized the concept of paper carving into dimensional tailoring; furthermore, I love to experimentwith all kind of texture which is different from fabric, especially with modern-life waste which we can hardly associate with costume materials, such as plastic bags, PET bottles and scrap metal. The theater stage is the best field to conduct the experiment.
I'd like to focus on atypical issues such as the beauty in ugliness, the left conscience of a sinner, the dirty hidden secret in a saint's heart, etc. Reinterpreting the "viewing vulgar as elegance" aesthetics in the generaldefinition of beauty is what I’m striving for.
