《願望》2021
每天從睜眼到睡前,都有很多內心的大小願望不斷出現,不論是強烈的、隱微的,就像旁白一樣繚繞腦中。那些可能是對於周遭正發生的不滿意,可能是對未來的期待,或是關於過去的早知道。基於種種心念,於是決定讓它們在這行動中一次出現。
我規定自己每劃下一根火柴,便得許出一個願望,讓草地上空口白話的無限許願,成為一種對於日常慾望的排解儀式和微挑戰。

《Wishes》2021
From the moment you open your eyes to the moment you go to bed, there are many internal wishes that keep appearing in your mind, whether they are strong or subtle, like a voiceover. These may be dissatisfaction with what is happening around us, expectations for the future, or " should have known" about the past. Based on all kinds of heartfelt thoughts, I decided to allow them to emerge in this action at once.

I made it a rule to make a wish for every match I slipped, so that the infinite wishing of empty words on the grass would become both a ritual of liberation and a micro-challenge to the daily desires.

《Chair》2021
作品名稱定為「chair」,一般在英文裡被熟知為「椅子」的意思外;於法文中則 是「肉身與軀體」之意。單字的巧合,正好能呼應我創作中,將身體和椅子支撐狀態相互翻轉的想法。在跌落爬起的反覆過程中努力維持著成為日常情景的一部分,身體也於其能力限制下擺盪著它的身份和狀態。

《Chair》
The word “Chair” in English means a seat for a person, it usually has four legs, backrest and sometimes two arm rests too, but in French “Chair”also means ‘flesh and body’. The coincidence of two meanings in this word reflects exactly the idea of my work: flipping the supporting state of the chair with the human body.
There are two instances in the video. The first, the original design and make of the object, conforming the human body into becoming the object. This changes the function of the furniture from a relaxed sitting position, to a challenging supporting structural state, making it extremely difficult to maintain the self-supporting posture. The second, is the failure to maintain the posture due to the physical inability. Returning the body from object to flesh, this moment symbolises the failure of keeping to a ‘daily routine’.
Due to the limitation of my physical ability, it changes my state in a repeated process of failing and reattempts. And through this experience, I question my adaptation to society’s conformity.
