Guo Jia: A city is like a modern-industry-forged cage, where we are trapped and involuntarily transformed, and the pure loneliness will wait you in the corner, all the time.

Loneliness series focus on the everyday life focusing on the depiction of the unconventional character “urban animals”, and give us an insight into what loneliness will be like when we feel in the familiar environment that the loneliness is concretized after we having empathy with the images.

Inspired by these works involved in this series, we can hereby try to describe the fairly hefty sense of loneliness, and even start a marvelous and adventurous exploration incorporating the stages of describing loneliness, knowing about loneliness and then knowing of others. We can judge through observation whether loneliness is doomed negative, isolated, dim or a leper.

To comprehend loneliness, an across-the-board expression should be made about it, which will guide you to someone meant to strike a chord with you. If loneliness remains haunting you day in and day out, perhaps you should treat it like a pet instead of considering it as a cumber on you.
