Color-Cutting


The red thread as my main material , it symbolizes the connection between people , but also disrupts the meaning of space and time. 

In Chinese culture , the word (結) “knot” means the trammels of marriage or family, and also means the connection with someone. My work will expand on the idea of “knot” which winds and extends the “threads” from my past work , as a collection of relations. The work will merge the paper-cutting artworks of naive artist Lou He-Sheng and combine the environment or space to perform and create the site-specific installation work.
