Almost Collapsing Balance
临 界 之 躯  (2020 - Ongoing)


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.

This work presents a slim female body. The bending torso, along with with its limbs, creates an architectural space connected to the ground. Held and protected by a tentacle, the flesh-toned vacuum ballonet hangs from the body rests at the center of the void. The sharp tip of that particular tentacle, made from ruby stone, implies blood and violence to come, while the antenna lightly pokes the surface of the ballonet as if it is about to pierce through. The work depicts a suspended moment when people have to face ideas or situations that they are unfamiliar with or uncertain whether to keep up with.

如动物般弯曲,同肢体、地面共同构筑了如建筑般的空间。一个肉色中空的气囊从其胸口向下垂坠, 由一只触角支撑和保护。但其顶端由红宝石制作的指尖却暗示了或将发生的血腥和暴力。我想用《犹疑》来表现人面对滋生于自身不寻常物质或观念时,决定是否与之共处的犹豫。
