作品概念:

 

    頭前溪是新竹的母親河。它穿越山谷,流經原住民、客家、閩南聚落,孕育綿延了新竹地區的文明。且竹北六家地區以前有許多水圳與稻田,是新竹的大穀倉,也曾有「六家熟,新竹足」的美稱。

    在歷經不同時期的文化與變革之後,「新瓦屋客家保存文化區」成為臺灣第一個客家文化保存區。迄今「西河世第」門樓與其外圍牆仍是整個聚落最重要的門戶意象,也是我拜訪新瓦屋客家文化園區時的第一印象。而園區旁有一條小溪,也使得我對於此地過去稻田的水圳有些許想像。

2011年德國斯圖加特大學航空航天學院(Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart)經實驗證實了水分子具有記憶周遭環境資訊的能力。在東方哲學中也常把水比喻成鏡子,可以映照萬事萬物,也是我們心象的映射。透過水的路徑與其在時代中的變化,能夠知道文明的發展生活的軌跡。

在客家拓墾特色中,常見許多的竹草構築。因此,我以竹子、樹木與生活物件為材料,藉由水的意象創造一股由大地生成,在空間中流動的記憶雕塑浪體。回應著頭前溪的自然給予與客家拓墾的精神,也連結著人與水的情感與生活記憶。

Title: Memory Wave No.2

Creator: Lee, Kuei-Chih

Material: Recycling living objects, bamboo

Size: 14 m (L) x 10 m (W) x 3.5 m (H)

Venue: Xinwawu Hakka Culture Preservation Park, Hsinchu city, Taiwan

Year: 2018

 

Touqian River is the mother river of Hsinchu city. It go through the valleys, flows through the aborigines, Hakkas, and southern Fujian villages, and breeds the civilization that extends the Hsinchu region. Moreover, there are many water and rice fields in the six districts of Zhubei. It is a large barn in Hsinchu city. It has also the reputation of "six matures and full of Hsinchu.".

After the culture and transformation of different periods, the “Xinwawu Hakka Preservation Cultural Zone” became the first Hakka cultural preservation area in Taiwan. So far, the "Xihe Shidi" gatehouse and its peripheral walls are still the most important gateway entire image, and also the first impression when I visited the Xinwawu Hakka Preservation Cultural Park. There is a small stream next to the park, and it makes me think about the water channel in the past.

In 2011, the Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany confirmed the ability of water molecules to have information about the surrounding environment. In Eastern philosophy, water is often metaphorized into mirrors, and it can reflect everything and also a map of our minds. Through the water path and its changes in the times, we can know the traces of the development and life of civilization.

We can see many bamboo construction in the Hakka traditional architecture.

Therefore, I use bamboo, trees and recycled living objects as the materials.

Through the water imagine to create a "Memory waves" natural sculpture here. It seems like growing from the earth and flowing in space. It responds to the spirit of the Natural giving of the Touqian River and the culture of the Hakka people. It also connects the emotions and life memories of people and water.
