The 11th International Forest Art Path - “Art Nature Change"


我誕生在台灣的農家。我們在農地上經常可以看見農民們載著「斗笠」進行耕作的景象,而「斗笠」就像是在大地上跳動著的黃色音符。不僅如此,此遮擋陽光和蔽雨的自然編結帽在世代的農耕使用習慣下自然而然地成為了華人農業的象徵符號。它與天氣相關,且象徵著農業、尊崇自然、維繫自然界生態平衡的智慧。

除此之外,在農業社會裡廟宇是民間信仰與文化的中心,它有著心理結構支撐的功能,也是常民生活中不可或缺的生活要素。在華人廟宇中常見許多的「龍柱」雕塑,也據說「龍」有著控制天氣且調節氣候的神力,而農業則是受氣候影響最直接的產業。

地球上的森林是一座座人類心靈的宗廟。因此,我使用了「斗笠」這象徵人與自然關係的象徵物作為材料,將斗笠組合成雕塑後,以廟宇龍柱的形式將此雕塑攀附在森林的樹上,就像是盤旋在廟柱上的龍,並將作品命名為「循環柱」,以此作品回應人類、土地與自然信仰的關係。

The 11th International Forest Art Path - “Art Nature Change"


I was born in the farmhouse in Taiwan. We can often see the scene of farmers carrying "Bamboo hat" to farm on the farmland, and "Bamboo hat" is like a yellow notes dancing on the earth. Moreover, this natural woven hat, which blocks the sun and rain, has naturally become a symbol of Chinese agriculture under the habits of agricultural use of generations. It is related to weather, symbolizes the agriculture, respecting nature, and the wisdom that maintains the ecological balance of nature.

In addition, temples in agricultural society are the center of folk beliefs and culture. It has the function of psychological structure support, and it is also an indispensable element of life in the lives of common people. Many "Dragon Pillar" sculptures are common in Chinese temples. It is also said that "dragon" has the power to control the weather and regulate the climate. Moreover, agriculture is the most direct industry affected by the climate.

The forest on the earth is the temple of the human soul. Therefore, I used the "Bamboo hat" that symbolizes the relationship between human beings and nature as a material. Therefore, I used the hat that symbolizes the relationship between human beings and nature as a material. After combining the "Bamboo hat" into a sculpture, this sculpture is installed to the tree of the forest in the form of a temple "Dragon Pillar", like a dragon hovering on the temple pillar, and named the work "circular column" to respond to the relationship between humans, land and nature.
