2020 Taiwan Biennial: Subzoology
National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMoFA)
Curated by Yao Jui-Chung

Like a filter, matters passed through you and became a part of you is presented as an installation, sculpture, and site-specific conceptual work. The work is an extension of the exploration of spatial perception and mental state from Like a Urinal in a Nightclub (MOCA Taipei, 2018) and Snails (not Included) (Michael Ku Gallery, Taipei, 2019). The flowing liquid in the toilet, sticky floor, and snails are metaphors, visualizing all transformations and changes, including specific chemical changes or the qualitative transformation of meaning and concept (that are relatively abstract). With the substance and where its transformation takes place as preface, the artist explores and asks: What transforms materials into works of art? How do objects and materials evolve and carry meaning? How do objects pass through us and become part of us? And by meeting and exchanging, could it be that the boundary between humans or objects has become blurry?

Just as hyphae build networks for entire forests, it may be that the bacteria in human stomachs are participating in the thinking process of the brain.

2020 臺灣美術雙年展:禽獸不如
國立臺灣美術館
策展人:姚瑞中

〈像是顆濾心,物質穿越過你便成為你的一部份〉以空間裝置、雕塑、物件和限地觀念作品所組成。延續在前身計畫〈像是一個夜店的小便斗〉(臺北當代藝術中心,臺北,2018)、(不存在的蝸牛〉(谷公館,臺北,2019)中對於空間感知、心理狀態的研究,以廁所中不停流動的液體、黏膩的地板、蝸牛為喻依,各種轉換與變化被視覺化,不管是具體的化學變化──或相對抽象的──意義或概念上的質變與轉化。拿物質與其發生變化的場所為引,藝術家持續探索與追問:是什麼讓材料變成作品的?物件和材料如何轉換與乘載意義?物如何穿越過我們而成為我們的一部份?而當人或物交會與交換的同時,我們之間的區別與分野是否早已模糊?

當菌絲為整座森林建立起聯繫網絡,人類肚子裡的細菌說不準也正幫著大腦思考。
