12%的天空-雲嘉嘉營藝術連線


我出生在有「農業首都」之稱的雲林縣。因為祖父母種植水稻的關係而使得我對土地與水有著深厚的情感,且逐漸養成了我對於有機世界的創作想法,也將「水」這種華人哲學思想中最有力量的隱喻作為每次創作時思考的觸媒。透過作品來呈現自然界中流動的能量,進而探索創作的本質與人、自然與環境之間的關係。

此展覽主題為「12%的天空」。在佔據12%台灣總面積的雲嘉南平原上,稻農常透過水的映射觀看著天空,感覺天與地是緊密相連的。而米是華人的主食,有著悠久的歷史與隨著時節變化的米食習俗,也是文化與經濟上的結晶。因此,此作品我使用「米」與「漣漪」這2種元素來詮釋水孕育大地的重要。我使用竹子編織出巨大米粒的雕塑,並以稻殼在空間中排列出漣漪狀的形狀。稻殼漣漪有著循環的象徵,使我回想起過去曬榖的景象,也像是米在這塊土地上泛起的文化漣漪。那隨著水持續擴展的不只是生產,更是隨著時節生活的謙遜態度與守護土地、與自然共生的生態智慧。

12% SKIES- Yun-Chia-Chia-Ying Visual Art Link


I was born in Yunlin County that known as the "Capital of Agriculture". Because my grandparents grow rice, I have deep emotions for land and water, and gradually developed my creative ideas in the organic world, use the most powerful metaphors in Chinese philosophical -"water" as the catalyst when I created. To present the energy in nature through works, and then explore the relationship between the nature of creation and the relationship between people, nature and the environment.

The theme of this exhibition is "12%of the sky". On Yunjianan Plain, which occupies 12%of the total area of Taiwan. The rice farmers often watch the sky through the reflection of water, and feel that the sky is closely linked to the land. And rice is a Chinese staple food. It has a long history and rice food custom that changes with the season. It is also the crystallization of culture and economy. Therefore, I use the two elements of "rice" and "ripples" to interpret the importance of water breeding the earth. I use bamboo to weave the huge rice grains sculpture, and the ripple -shaped shape is arranged in the space with rice shells. The ripple of rice shell has a symbol of the cycle, which reminds me of the scene of the Rice drying in the sun in the past. It is also like the cultural ripples of rice on this land. It is not only production that continues to expand with the water, but also the humble attitude in life with the seasons. Care of land, and ecological wisdom with nature.
