Artist Statement
“Hudi” (which means “bottom of the lake) is the general name used by the people in my hometown, Dashe, when referring to Tsuiping Village, and “Jianshanjiao” (which means “foot of a pointy hill”) is the name of a small hill located near the 3rd Public Cemetery in the area. There is a plot of farmland by Jianshanjiao that was passed down from my grandfather, and my father had difficulties farming the land, so it was leased out to a shepherd. After my grandfather passed away, the land ended back in the hands of my father. As the son of possibly the family’s last farmer, memories are projected by the art I’ve created and the objects gathered, which are juxtaposed with real-time images and animations. A state of coexistence is constructed, which has risen from being confronted with something that can’t be explained. Real-time images are used in this artwork, which are contrasted with animated images of traditional twined flowers, and the animation is integrated with realistic landscapes of my hometown. Divided by temporal differences, efforts are exerted when seeing the artwork to form a new subject of gaze that is aligned and in synch.
