I do not speak much. My introvert personality lets art choose me and offer me the chance to feel the world sensitively.

 

I had spent two years studying the Professional Physical Theatre Youth Training Programme in Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio. Since then, I have become more sensitive in observing people and their activities. The experience influences me the ways I deal with drawing and photography.

 

Trauma, growth and the distance and tension between people and I are recurrent issues in my  works. In the process, I may have discovered something and become relieved. Or nothing have changed. But I believe, through art I could get closer to ‘who am I’.

 

In my daily life ‘nature’ and ‘body’ are my areas of concern. I like to observe the body through the lens and I use the body to think about the possibilities of drawing while enjoying the process. At this stage, I would like to explore the possibilities between different media and myself. To me, art is my passion towards life. There are still a lot that I do not know. I hope I could learn more about my inner self and my nature through art.

Memories with Fringe Club 與藝穗會的回憶

當提到藝穗會,我第一件想起的回憶是與幾個學習伙伴在藝穗會吃飯的時光,那時我們正有一個想法壽備在這裡辦攝影展覽。我當時是一位準備就讀Visual Art的學生,在做一份有關傳統相機的工作。兩年後,如今我是Year2的學生,在做有關藝術與設計的工作,和Freelance有關攝影的工作,我也感恩現在的生活都在圍繞著藝術,這一切都讓我成長 。

 

有關我提交的作品:

 

我以攝影作為最主要的媒介,這次的攝影主要圍繞著我的家人以及我的成長,透過攝影的凝視與探索,去了解我如何在這個環境下形成局外人之身份。

 

台灣學者蔣勳在他的《寂孤六講》一書中談及孤獨,讓我回首人生。命運讓我與不同的人建立關係。有些結束了,有些人正在等待再次見面的其他機會,有些人保持著良好的狀態。有人出現。有人離開。我有一些教訓要學習成長。每一個獨特的個性都讓我感到失落和遺憾。

 

在我的成長過程中,我總是覺得自己像個局外人。我與所發生的事情的記憶分離,無論是快樂還是悲傷。在這個項目中,我直面我的過去。為了弄清楚我與他人的關係,我必須清楚地審視自己。我知道我們都是生活中的過客。我們是我們生活的局外人。

 

我用攝影回到我的童年,我的成長和我的家。攝影的客觀性使我成為局外人。我怎樣用攝影這個局外人去旁觀他人的痛苦?我解決了我的感覺嗎?還是我忘記了?我想尋找答案。唯一的辦法就是回到過去,雖然我不可能回到過去。在課程中,我釋放了對父親的愧疚和自我仇恨。

 

攝影作為一種關心世界的媒介,我直視過去,以解決我與人的關係並尋找我理想的家。在時間的邊緣,我深深地觸動了每一個靈魂,在這個過程中,我原諒了自己。
