創作自述 Artist Statement

 

 

我的藝術家的身分和一般學科的知識份子沒有區別、不過多了藝術技術和美感能力罷了。我表達普遍的問題,就像作家拿筆評論時事一樣,我用藝術批評社會。

My artistic identity is no different than that of ordinary intellectuals in other disciplines, only it involves more artistic technique and aesthetic ability. I express common problems, just like a writer uses his pen to comment on current events, I use art to criticise society.

 

我想要強押起脆弱的、完全相斥的兩端,讓他們共存。這是一種循環的關係結構,上下與高低沒有相對,並可能互相成為對方。這是一個去除中心的過程,也是一個去除自我的過程。

I wish to forcefully grasp fragile and entirely oppositional poles, allowing them to coexist. This is a type of cyclical relational structure; up and down, high and low, fundamentally don’t have opposites, but have been mutually matched. In this process, the center is removed, as well as the self.

 

我想將我的創作,不管是錄影、雕塑裝置或繪畫都成為一個單格的影像,讓觀賞的人可以存入腦袋之中,達到一種宣傳的目的,藝術應該是宣傳工具,是喚醒集體良知的工具,這是極為迫切的環境之下的唯一選擇。

I want to take all my work, no matter if it’s video, sculpture, installation, or painting, and create an image lattice, which allows viewers to enter the mind and achieves the goal of dissemination. Art should be a tool of propaganda, a tool to awaken the collective conscience. This is the only choice under very pressing conditions
