駐村成果展《微塵浮花》(Tiny Dust and Floating Flowers)
Yu-Cheng Lin, born in Taipei, graduated from Department of Sculpture, National Taiwan University of Arts. He was one of the awardees of Next Art Tainan 2017. Lin’s works reveal various object systems that continuously incubate and develop in the corners of life, challenging our understandings of living space. The assembly of simple mechanical components provides clues on many objects. This exhibition is an attempt to recreate the functionality of objects and bring out the vitality of chaos and debris.
Through the process of replication, imitation, and direct usage of the existing objects, the artist triggers our familiarity with daily trivialities. The placement of these ordinary objects seemingly portrays the moments in our daily lives, however, behind the façade of reality, the unreasonable misplacement of objects is actually a complete practice of “falsehood”. This “falsehood” eliminates daily functionality of objects and generates systematic associations behind the appearance of objects.
“Tiny Dust” represents the thoughts lingering in exhibition space. “Floating Flowers” symbolize the temporary and wonderful illusions and the various objects scattered in this space. The design of the exhibition space incorporates randomness and subtle linkage; it tries to awaken and link audiences’ personal life experiences to this space. This is the reason the exhibition is called “Tiny Dust and Floating Flowers”.
