In this exhibition, Yao Hai uses acrylic as the main material for his works. He attempts to use a single material as a cornerstone to unlock all cognition in order to construct and develop the works. By exploring the evolution and transformation of a specific material, he acquires an in-depth understanding of the material itself and thereby improving self-perception and raising the ability to perceive the world.

 

Yao Hai believes that any material has a life of its own. They exist in various forms of energy, and the energy will neither be produced nor perished. It will only transform. In the exhibition, Yao Hai uses acrylic material to create unidentified objects in different shapes suspended throughout the exhibition space, with some scattered on the ground, in order to construct an energy field beyond the boundaries so as to physically confront the viewer, allowing them to experience the familiar strange world. 

 

此次展覽藝術家主要選擇亞克力材料展開創作,藝術家試圖將單一材料作為開啟一切認知的基石,從而來建構和發展作品。藝術家透過思考具體單一材料的演變與轉化,進而達到深入認識材料本身,以及借此獲得提升自我感知和認知世界的能力。

藝術家認為任何材料是有生命的,它們都以某種能量的生命形態存在,能量既不會產生也不會消亡,只會發生轉移。在展覽中藝術家使用亞克力材料製作成不同形狀的不明物體和碎片懸置在整個空間,這些漂浮之物,或懸半空中,或散落著地,意在建構一個置身界外的能量場。使觀者體驗一種來自日常且熟悉的陌生世界。
