生命是一个复杂的话题,蕴含了太多的切入点。人们用一种植物“曼陀罗”来象征 生命,又赋予不同颜色的曼陀罗以相应的花语。但是,艺术家郑闻卿认为这是片面的,所以她制造了一 朵并非单色的曼陀罗,这样的曼陀罗才是对生命相对完整的表述。
Life is complex, and we can discuss it from multiple aspects. People see Datura stramonium as a symbol of life, and bestow different languages to each variant color of the flower, which, to Zheng Wenqing, is only biased. So, she created a Datura stramonium with multiple colors to represent life in a more complete and diversified manner.
Love is eternal, which transcends time and blurs the boundary of beginning and end. It is transparent, linear, and reflected repeatedly in space; it is so uncertain that it boosts infinite possibilities.
艺术家简介 About The Artist
In recent years, the artist’s focus in glass art has been embedding glass into installation art works as a medium, where she has gained a deeper understanding about glass both on its physical form and on the expressions and languages it delivers. The works recent shows insights, which features bold attempts at creating dialogues between the linear glass in a dynamic form and the sound and light. What we are going to witness is the magnificent strength from the re-shaping of glass pieces, and the light that gleams and glows within. It is the strong trembling in thin and vulnerable lines, or the fierce expressions underneath the soft and gentle colors, or the extreme obsessions oozing out of the delicate craftsmanship, or the ultimate refinement of the diverse light. Zheng Wenqing is not creating something new with conventional methods; she is, instead, breaking apart the original shapes so that the light can glow and stream in a completely new fashion.
