A Growing Landscape| Alenquer 生长中的风景(III)

2020. 8

 

From collecting material to painting and then developing to site-specific installations, it is a way for me to dialogue with nature or the surrounding environment. From this, my works grow in the transformation of time and space. 

In the works presented in this exhibition, I used some Chinese medicinal plants that have been closely related to my life in the past one or two years as material. These plants act on my body on the one hand, and on the other hand, they made me spiritually curious about and interested in them over time. When I was painting, it seemed that it had become a daily routine to listen to some programs of ancient medical records. With my interest in these plants, I transformed the materials into manuscripts, where the lines, fragments, and colors are intertwined with my previous works and architectural spaces like vines. They may no longer be related to the original context, but intervene in a new environment with a more independent form, and grow into another pictorial landscape. 

 

从采集素材到绘画再发展至场域特定的装置,是我自身与大自然或周遭环境对话的一种方式,作品也由此在时间与空间的变换中随之生长。

在这次展览的作品中,我以一些近一两年来与我生活密切相关的中药植物作为素材,这些植物一方面作用于我的身体,另一方面又让我在心理上渐渐对它们产生了好奇与兴趣。绘画的时候,耳边播放一些古代医家的医案故事似乎已经成了日常,藉着对这些植物的兴致,我将素材转换成了手稿,同时这些手稿中的线条、碎片、色彩也犹如藤蔓一般继而与我之前的作品、与建筑空间相互缠绕,它们可能与原有的语境不再相关联,但却以另一种更独立的形式介入新的环境,生长为另一种图像风景。
