《素女展》Exhibition of the Plain Girl

《素女展》Lokz Phoenix Solo Exhibition

“The Plain Girl will now be my instructress,
I shall learn ten thousand postures to adopt.
Very few men have ever seen these arts,
Which the Old Man of Heaven taught to the Yellow Emperor.’

“Tung-sheng-ko” (Epithalamium) by Zhang Heng

According to the ancient Chinese mythology, “Plain Girl” (sunü) is a goddess of wellness who excels in music and “skills in the bedchamber”. Plain Girl and Dark Girl (xuannü) are both teachers of the Yellow Emperor, the most important god of the Five Forms of the Highest Deity. The Canon of the Plain Girl is a handbook of “skills in the bedchamber” — postures, impregnation, psychology, medicine and sexual and other skills — that is still being circulated in the modern world today.
Inspired by the mythical figure of the Plain Girl, Exhibition of the Plain Girl recreates the life of this plump and elegant woman in pursuit of a noble sexuality against the backdrop of the contemporary society.
