作品陈述


我的艺术作品旨在表达联结世界上各种存在及现象的动态因素,我想通过它们所带来的感知体验向观众展示人,事物和事件之间的相互作用。


我使用哲学家莱布尼茨(G.W.Leibniz)所说的“物力论(dynamism)”这个词。若它有两个寓意:“进动的相互作用”和“不可避免的巧合”,我将借此表达我的概念。当个体观察他们周遭的动态因素时,物力论将让他们联想并追踪空间中全方位的、在时间上不可逆转的轨迹及人类生命的种种遭遇或事件(例如,当观察者追踪人类生命的轨迹,它将以一种录像带式的方式呈现,当他/她想绘制它时,它就像一张无人执笔却自行作画的地图缓缓展开)。


我的职业艺术生涯始于担任美术馆中不同工作坊的艺术指导,那时我就意识到了直接触摸作品本身对其感知体验的影响。担任讲师期间,我还研究了当代艺术。另一方面,我从日本的当代艺术家那里学到了美术的基础知识,并且受到了影响,如物派(Mono-ha),日本的极简艺术,他们在物与空间的关系中表达美。这就是我对事物关系产生兴趣的缘由。


然而,他们的作品是相对静止的,没有人参与其中,但我的作品却总充满动态因素并为人们提供了通过互动来进一步完成作品的机会。我相信世界是由人,事物和事件的相互作用构成的,这些事物在时间和空间上交叉,变化并扩展,我正是想表达这种主旨,也将进一步说明。


我所想阐述的——动态因素和世界上的不同单元间相互作用所产生的关系,是让人们感受到的那些无法通过静态视觉所观察到的现象,这就是作品以使人们在感性和直觉上去体验动态因素的原因。此外,为了表达我的观念,我常会根据环境和我试图表达的具体事物而改变材料和技术。


在最近的作品中,我特别尝试通过将球形的软雕塑作为一个象征世界的典型图像来让人们通过物理体验去感受动态的形而上学结构。我采用这种简单的几何形状作为物力学的模型,通过空气和拉伸的强度建立了这些作品的结构,以表达所追踪的动态因素。我选择了不同的材料与制作方法,使作品更具有感知性。


如此,这些作品为人们提供独特的触觉体验,并让他们享受触碰的过程。作品和人的相互参与,并将由此创造出一个不受控制的地方小世界,这对我来说是件有趣的事情。


虽然这是一些过去的项目案例,但理念会在未来保持统一。我一直期待着这些作品能以美丽的方式为人们展现出新的关于世界的看法。



Artist Statement

    

I complete my art works to express the dynamism connecting various existences or phenomena in this world. I would like to show people interactions among people, things and events through sensorial experience of my works.


I use the word “dynamism” as the philosopher G.W.Leibniz does. Assuming the word has two meanings that are “precessional interaction” and “inevitable coincidence”, I adopt it to expressing my concept. When individuals observe their dynamism, the dynamism will let them trace the tracks that have grown omni-directionally in space and go irreversibly in time as well as encounters or events of human life. (For example, if an observer traces the track of human life, it will be one way like a video recording, and if he/she draws it, it will be like a map drawn without lifting the pen from the paper.)


My career as an artist started from becoming an art instructor of different workshops in a museum and then I became aware of effects of sensorial experience through touching artworks directly. While working as an instructor, I studied contemporary art on my own.


On the other hand, I learned basics of fine art from modern artists in Japan, and I was influenced by Japanese modern art like Mono-ha, Japanese minimal art that expresses beauty in relationship between object and space. This is how I became interested in relationship.    


However, while their works are rather static and have no people involved, my works are dynamic and offer opportunities for people to complete the works by interacting with them. I believe the world is made of interactions by people, things, and events that keep crossing, changing and expanding in time and space, and what expresses this belief of mine is my art work, which is described below.


I think what expresses relationships that occur from dynamism and the interactions in the world is what lets people sense phenomena that can not be observed with static visual information only. That's why I design all of my works in order to let people experience the dynamism sensorially and intuitively. Besides, to share my concept, I change my materials and techniques depending upon circumstances and the specific things that I try to express.


With my recent works, I particularly attempted to let people sense metaphysical structures of dynamism through their physical experience, by building spherical soft sculptures as typical images of the world. I employed this simple geometric form as the model of the dynamism and I built these works by the air and tensile strength to express a traced track of dynamism. I chose different characteristic materials and different ways of making to make the works sensorial.


By doing so, each of these works offered a unique sense of touch for people to enjoy touching it, and people did enjoy it. Then, my works and people are involved with each other, and both of them cooperatively make a small local world that is free of my control, and that is the most interesting thing for me in my artist life.


Although this is an example of my projects in the past, my concept will be coherent to the near future. I keep expecting my art works to offer people new perspectives of the world in a beautiful manner.
