The artist channels her experience of making and
performing with marionettes into her sculptures to encompass flexible joints
and detachable appendages. Mechanical limits between the joints incarnate
a critical state of the mind, granting the sculptures a balanced structure and
a static momentum.
︎06 - Headwind 逆风
Headwind 逆风, 2023 hand-colored limewood, stainless steel
103 x 130 x 81 cm 40 1/2 x 51 x 32 in
In Headwind (2023), the figure
ferociously resists against an invisible force that seems to be suppressing,
twisting and deforming their body. Their head and limbs deviate extensively from
the body's natural axis, creating a strong sense of motion. The technical
challenge the artist encountered while creating the work is also what she
invites viewers to consider on a metaphysical level: How to maintain
stability and balance in extreme movement and change?
