Statement:

《逃·逸》
在此次「不幸福利社」線上展覽合作中,我將我2019年的系列作品「逃逸」延伸成為一個沈浸式的數位動畫作品。作品形式為雙聯幅,兩具以藤蔓交織而成的身體如嬰兒似地躺臥於子宮般的空間。我試著以此作品探討當生活過度安逸、或是因無知而感到幸福的狀態可能導致的風險。並以此回應此展覽之論述:人類如何以無聊為不幸,並與之共存的可能。
這是我第一次以數位媒介呈現自己的作品。我邀請了英國動畫師/數位藝術家 Mark Maxwell將我的繪畫作品動畫化,同時也請我以動畫師/插畫師為志向的妹妹Jun Chen協助。由於此作品試圖是以沉浸式形式展出,需要適當的背景音樂,因此我也委託了長期合作的實驗性電音團體─Torn Relics,請他們為此作品製作音樂。此次與Torn Relics的合作意義非凡,因為此次展出作品「逃逸」正是此樂團於2020年透過阿姆斯特丹唱片公司 Leyla Records 出版的「Abolish The Dogma」 專輯封面。

《Dangers of Comfort》
For “Generation Bored Stiff” - I’ve extended my 2019 pieces “Dangers of Comfort” into an immersive art piece. In the Dangers of Comfort diptych, the audience sees two veiny figures resting in fetal position in a womb-like surrounding. This piece explores the literal danger of blissful ignorance or constant state of comfort. While in conjunction with the exhibition’s concept, the perils of imminent boredom.
This is the first time I have presented my work in a virtual metaphysical medium. I have collaborated with animator/digital artist Mark Maxwell for making my painted figures come to life, with the assistance of my sibling and emerging illustrator/animator, Jun Chen. As I'd like the space to be a fully immersive experience for the audience, it would’ve been incomplete without a soundtrack. For the accompanying sound piece, I commissioned my long term collaborator, experimental electronic music duo Torn Relics to create a bespoke soundscape. It has come full circle, since “Dangers of Comfort” was also their “Abolish the Dogma” album cover (released on Leyla Records, Amsterdam).
