Sculpture for SAWAA: Primary Vessel

“Primary Vessel”  refers to the body as an initial form to attain experience beyond our language. In September 2021, messagingleaving and SAWAA together curated an exhibition merging art installation and dance to explore how skin awakes an intuitive nature in our body.

“Water Form”
A two-meter-long stainless steel sculpture lies in silence. Ripples appear to linger just beneath the surface of the water, blurring the boundaries of external and internal, of real and illusion. Depending on the viewer’s position and light conditions, the interaction between light and perception mirrors a reflection of our own inner selves and external world.

“Faces in Sand”
Four ceramics sculptures in varying shapes and sizes symbolize the interaction of sand and the tide. Simple lines and clean textures remind us of earth while the impressions seem to be remnants of human touch. The memories we make, created through touch, imprint on our deepest consciousness.

SAWAA 2021 週年企劃展 《Primary Vessel 初形》 攜手 messagingleaving 共同策劃,將潮汐之地的沙與水提煉為原型,藉不鏽鋼裝置與陶質雕塑,讓自然的面貌與人為的意念相結合,並交付身體為最純粹的載體,指向蘊養萬物的自然之源。

《Water Form 水像》
兩米長的半圓柱容器嵌著波紋鏡面,靜默躺著,彷彿一片巨大水體。它不斷反射出不思議的光線,將周圍的景色顯得變形而抽象,巧妙卻中性地模糊了內與外的分界。佇立於鏡面裝置之前的無限凝視裡,最開始我們以眼睛試探,直到身形開始在倒影之中流動,真正的意義開始往內折射。我們與之互動,透過身體傾聽,讓自己是鏡子也可以是容器,可以映照也可以承載自己。

《Faces in Sand 沙面》
素淨肌理作為大地的引線,將意念以線條,反覆洗鍊如地殼挪移,海洋淘洗。作品實驗著雕塑與舞者的相生關係,在雛形階段便讓舞者抱擁、撫摸、輕倚,探索它的材質、溫度與輪廓,並在過程中塑出與身體部位相符的線條與起伏,以回應舞者的肢體語言。
