Then begin with an airline ticket…
There is no specific content deliberately conceived of for verifying tendency of context. I only go down the streets with an airline ticket, stationery and some money. Under various settings of modern civilization, I let my emotion and imagination go and seek. Initially two circles drawn by a stewardess on the airline ticket catch my eyes.
Here all works are produced in different public spaces or studios of the others. Wandering, eating and taking a rest over the city, I immediately start making art pieces while I have an idea. No matter what things I use or buy, they are limited in the stage of daily living. Thereby I am much more concerned about various forms of “drawing” which it can extend and reveal towards such context.
When discussion of drawing comes to a kind of conscious stream transmitting messages to physical reaction of bodies, the process is always concluded as disorder of self-expression or indescribable spirituality. Dealing with this interpretation, self-purification and extraction are emphasized which I regard it as a myth. Among limitation of context, independence, tools and techniques, how much our thoughts and ideas can thoroughly derive from self without bias of external conditions?
Then I begin with an airline ticket by citing my experiences during residency in Taipei to carry out a series of thoughts and change of media, in an attempt to reach the unclarified field between tendency of context and independence. Does the final presentation only manifest my own habits? A series of unrelated pieces? Or a brand-new means of overturning for different perspectives?
If drawing can raise our most fundamental intuitive and sensibility, then I would let my feelings go to achieve something. I don’t intend to define it, otherwise drawing may go farther and farther.
