To those who are accustomed to the hustle and bustle of a big city, urban living seems to be a full, colored schedule book. Even though everyday is a new day and sacrifices must be paid for life, one cannot help but fight for a change from time to time. Imagine a day, one walks into the woods embracing a moment of peace, sits in silence doing nothing, and enjoys the day undisturbed. Pure pleasure.

Over the past few years I was able to go into the nature and see the mountains during my travels. Mountains are surrounded by trees and bushes. Whenever I was in the mountain, I felt I was part of the surroundings, returning into the original, primitive state of mind. Without the hustle and bustle of the city, a symphony of chirping birds and humming insects and the crispness of the air constitutes the wonderfulness of this little forest.

Dried natural plants are the focal point in the series of “Little Forest.” I weaved those dried leaves and sticks into my works in an attempt to maintain their original appearance as much as possible. Through these works, I’m hoping to bring everyone back to the wonderful moments that I had enjoyed in the forests.

在城市的日子,所見是車水馬龍,也是燈火闌珊的景象,對於一個早已習慣如此的人來說,忙碌的過日子, 似乎就是生活。雖然說每天都是一種練習,為了生活是必須,但偶爾也會不甘於一成不變。若某一天,能走進山林感受片刻安寧,就算是靜靜坐在一旁什麼也不做,度過一整日的無擾時光,也是一種享受。

這些年來旅行過許多地方,因此有不少機會,得以接近大自然走進山中,閱覽各地山景。而山的意象是由樹木圍繞建構而成的,當我踏進山林身處其境,感覺也成為了他們的一份子,好像一起回到了最初、最原始的狀態。有別於城市的喧囂, 取而代之的是鳥鳴與蟲唧交織而成的音樂,以及透徹的空氣,整個小森的美好,即在如此的氛圍下暈開。

這次「小森Little Forest」系列作品皆運用自然真實的乾燥植物做為焦點媒材,將乾燥葉枝編織進去作品中,盡可能的表現自然的樣貌。希望這些我所擁有的美好小森回憶,能帶大家一起身歷其境,享受片刻的美好。

"Nowhere"

As we move to another city, study abroad, end love affair, many people and things have blown in the wind without a trace before we even notice. Belongingness is like a wind, without a form, scent, or sound. As it brushes the cheek, it carries away youth, leaving confusion to whoever stays.

Belongingness is the toy room from childhood; it's also grandma's homemade rice dumplings, and the corner my dog friend stayed for 10 years. It can be tangible or intangible. It can be symbiotic or self-obtained. When we eventually realize that belongingness comes from ourselves, those we've accumulated and experienced will turn into the precious gold, while those we worried, expected, confused, and missed will find the place they belong.

Home is where the heart is. Belongingness is everywhere, Nowhere.

「無處」

隨著搬家、留學、分手,許許多多的人事物,在我們還來不及發現之前,便已悄悄淹沒在歲月的洪流裡。歸屬感?如風般沒有形體,沒有氣味,沒有聲響。在拂過臉頰之際,帶走青春,只留下懷疑。

歸屬感,可以是小時候的玩具房、可以是外婆親手包的粽子,可以是那隻陪了十年的狗玩伴存在的角落。它可以存在固定、或者不固定的形體,它可以與外物共生,更可以自我給予。當最終意識到歸屬感實則來自於自己,一路生命的積累便成了最令人珍藏的寶藏,那些擔心、期待、迷惘、恐懼、思念的微小情緒,都找到了自己的母體。

自己的心在哪裡,歸屬感就在哪裡。Home is where the heart is. 無處不在的歸屬感,無處,Nowhere.
 

YOUNG ART TAIPEI 2015

YOUNG ART TAIPEI (as known as YAT) is the leading contemporary hotel art fair in Asia that focuses on introducing young talented artists under the age of 45. Together with contemporary art galleries and young talented artists from around the world, YAT has become an important platform for discovering emerging stars in Asian contemporary art market. In spring of 2015, YAT will present yet another exquisite fair for contemporary art at the Sheraton Grande Taipei.

YAT 2009 was first introduced after the financial crisis in 2008. With successful marketing campaigns such as: “YAT x Louis Vuitton Collector Tea Party”, “Young Art Award”, “Graffiti in Eslite Store”, “Affordable Art”, etc., has captured the attentions of experienced domestic collectors and international galleries ever since. To further expand our influence amongst loyal fair supporters and private collectors, this year we are introducing classic events such as “Contemporary Art Forum”, “Introductory Project for Private Collectors”, "YOUNG ART AWARD” along with updated series of seminars for special events all of which will sure be captivating for both new/old art lovers.

With great participation from galleries and a fully dedicated team, YAT is able to bring in record breaking results year over year. In 2014, the 6th annual YAT had an incredible 76 international galleries participating from Japan, Singapore, China, Europe and local art galleries and a collective sales of 682 magnificent art pieces.

The 7th annual YOUNG ART TAIPEI will be held on April 24th through 26th, 2015. This year, the exhibit will be held at the prestigious Sheraton Grande Taipei Hotel, providing galleries, collectors and artists an unforgettable atmosphere. As always, YAT will uphold our commitment to providing an open platform for promoting contemporary art while bridging the gaps between international artists and domestic Taiwanese collectors. We look forward to seeing all of you as we embark on this important milestone.

 

台北國際當代博覽會(YOUNG ART TAIPEI,簡稱YAT),為亞洲歷史頗稱悠久的飯店型博覽會,同時也是當代藝術市場的風向球,帶領45歲以下新生代藝術家邁向國際。做為一個全球藝術文化交流的舞台,藉由國際當代藝廊及年輕藝術家的參與,YAT於2015年將在過去良好的基石上,邀請藝術新星們一同「大放藝彩」。

在金融風暴襲捲後的2009年首次登場的YAT,成功開啟亞洲當代藝術市場新局面,建立精緻而高品質的展覽空間。過去幾屆的大規模行銷宣傳活動,如「YAT x LV藏家茶會」、「專家面對面計劃」、「誠品現場塗鴉秀」、「中南部YAT巡展」等,每一次的強力放送,皆成為國際媒體關注的焦點,也帶來絕佳的銷售成績。2015年,YAT「當代藝術論壇」、「藏家入門計劃」、「YOUNG ART AWARD新潮賞」等經典活動也將搭配一系列主題宣傳,吸引更多藝術愛好者的目光。

由於參展畫廊的熱心支持,以及工作團隊的全力投入,所以YAT能夠屢次締創令人滿意佳績。2014年第六届YAT國內外參展畫廊,空前增加至76家,除台灣本地畫廊外,另有來自日本、新加坡、中國等等地區之優質畫廊參與陣容。更因大部份參展畫廊,多年來能夠持續提供饒富創意、價格親民之新鮮當代藝術品,令喜愛藝術收藏的大眾,充滿躍躍欲試的期待;以致藝博會活動中,銷售作品總額可達682件之佳績!

2015年4月24-26日第七屆YOUNG ART TAIPEI,我們將邀請更多高水準國內外藝廊共同參與盛會,並以座落於台北核心的喜來登大飯店做為展覽場地,提供畫廊、收藏家、藝術家絕佳的展覽與欣賞環境。除此之外,YAT也將秉持著過去的信念,建立良好的台灣藝術發聲平台,健全當代藝術市場,致力於國際交流與台灣當代藝術推廣。

Dandelion 2013

Joint exhibition of art, design, animation and photography.

Pick up in life, then grow.

The Dandelion Exhibition has been developed by the artistic talents of a group of artists and designers who come from a variety of different nationalities, therefore bringing with them a whole range of backgrounds. As we pass through life, experiences and memories impact how we grow, not just as people, but also in our creativity. It is this first step in the creative process that has resulted in unique works, just like the seeds from the dandelion that fly through the wind until they eventually fall down to a fertile soil, and then patiently wait as they develop until they are prepared to burst forth into the world above the ground.

Time : 19th Nov- 24th Nov 2013
Crypt Gallery : St Pancras Church, Euston Road, London. NW1 2BA
