Iron Beast

Iron beast is a creation that made from practical tools. In religious art, many ritual implements and weapons are developed from folk tools. Furthermore, the tools can be associate with the stories of the industries which are symbolized by the tools itself. Finally, the appearances are presented between fiction and reality.

Therefore, I remove the practical function of folk tools and try to use Fu Bi Xing to interpret the shape. I use my own way of shaping and give them the characteristics of times. In addition, I use the modern language to describe the shape of traditional folk art in order to continue the future development and to survive as new living organisms. That is, the reason why I named it the Iron Beast.

 

 

wǔ xíng flags

I use five colors as the main principal of this installation works which makes the creation not just a sculpture standing at the exhibition. I use colors as groups to differentiate the space, followed by indicative flags pointing at various directions, which cut the vertical space into a radial pattern due to the scattered colors and indicators. As an installation, the purpose is to use its shape to respond or to affect the space in which the creation is located.
