Brink 在英文中意为边缘的意思,正如作品所呈现的。作品中所有的材料都代表着在我们生活中所接触到的东西。大框架,我称之为大系统,是由钢铁焊接而成,在这个大系统中的还包括了由透明亚克力板组成的立方体,是像我们城市中的摩天大楼,里面充斥着我们自己配制出来的自然,像是碧蓝色的水,扭曲的盆栽,和被我们驯化的各种植物。在这个框架中,每一个元素和材料都互相依托对方,而且每一个元素都站在一个边缘。每一个亲身接触到作品的观众都会对作品中的不稳定性产生谨慎和畏惧的心理,怕把作品碰倒,因为一个不小心可能带来的是整个框架的坍塌。边缘这个作品,在不稳定的同时,也创造了决对平衡。

 

Link连接,这个作品是和Brink边缘同时创作,同时展出的。与Brink不同的是,Link呈现的并非融合和依托。更多的是,分化和区分,在分割的区块下如何产生连接。所种在透明盒子里的绿箩是和另一个区块的碳是分开的,和地上的土也是分开的。观众在展览中只能看到一部分或者是植物生长的一部分。但它会逐渐地生长,冲向吊在空中的架子,覆盖周边的分隔开的几个区块,从而形成连接。连接是靠生命运动,成长形成的。

Living

SkyBridge Gallery

Parsons School of Design

Material: Plexiglass, Banzai Tree, Bamboo, Plants, Soil, Charcoal, Tree Trunks

2017

The combination of the extreme differences of the Eastern and the Western philosophies is the core of my practice. The Living series is a condition created to push the bamboo lives to its limitation, and observe their survival resisting against the extreme condition. The minimal performative exploration of living being thrives in its time, which offers the viewers to rethink about surviving under repression, especially in this moment of chaotic uncertainty.

Air

Material: Helium, Balloon, Wood, Tape, Dry Wall

2015

The tapes, as lines, create a geometric pattern meaning man made regulations. The round helium balloon, as a symbol of life and free spirit, which is not just a still object and it moves, is trapped within the pattern, but its attempt of escaping and flying upwards, is breaking the pattern of the black lines. The controversy between the man made regulation and the free spirit is presented in this sculpture, but the documentation of the deflation process expresses how it is released from repression.
