■Outline of solo exhibition
In this solo exhibition, the artist will present three series of works, including new works. The artist has been searching for a form of digital reincarnation and homage to the contemporary Mani wheel in the process of converting silver sculptures floating in the air into digital form, photographing them physically and converting them back into digital form again. The exhibition will feature a new work, “ﾇﾙ即是色色即是ﾇﾙ”. In this work, the motif of the emptiness in the Heart Sutra line “Form is emptiness, emptiness is form”, is reinterpreted as digital data of silver sculptures that do not retain tangible form, and the way they reflect various colors and shapes and distort the landscape is composed in a digital hanging scroll.
■Works to be exhibited
“Re-Digitalization of Waves” is a physically photographed work in which mirrored sculptures floating in the air cut out a landscape and rotate to remind us of the reconciliation and modification of the human soul and landscape. Re-Materialization of Waves” dares to set the frame rate to zero and lands on a 2.5-dimensional print with a high degree of mass in the process of works that continue to repeatedly shift between the digital and the material in the “Re-Digitalization of Waves” series. The new work “ﾇﾙ即是色色即是ﾇﾙu” is a reinterpretation of the empty motif of the Heart Sutra as digital data of silver sculptures.
