THE LANDSCAPE

April 2020/ Installation/ Foam board, Resin, Cement/ 1600mm*500mm*150mm      

A particular experience – one day when I picked up a book and opened it, a piece of paper fell out. At that moment, I thought that the paper could be thought of as a separate element – the content and the text. So, I began to record this wonderful moment of “falling off” and “separating” using a range of creative strategies. The original idea was to keep a separate state between the text and the book to highlight the power of Book Arts. Because Book Arts this course will be suspended, I want to record this moment forever.

I have been working with the plasticity of cement and its ability to take numerous forms. The qualities within cement mean that it is a diverse material. There are three states of cement powder, liquid and solid. It is a contradictory and unified material. In addition, it provides a sense of strength, support and durability. It can be said that cement is a kind of material that has embedded within its sensibility and rationality.

I’M A PAGE

JUNE 2020/ Photography

I’M A PAGE is a continuation of THE LANDSCAPE.

One day I became a page

I met letters

We tried to understand each other

We fell in love

We touched each other

We became each other

We were entangled with each other

Cement is a kind of material that has embedded within its sensibility and rationality. The same is true of the body. For strength and muscle, it may be more rational, while shape and curve softness are more perceptual. Both are carriers of contradiction and harmony. At the same time, they can extend space, stop time, and build a new space-time system. So, when I become the carrier of text, I have crossed the biological threshold, and I become the new carrier. When I become a part of text, text also becomes a part of me, we are integrated, which is infinite and limited, perceptual and rational.
