The Tower I

 塔:一號

2017 

Performance Record

Performer: He, Yu-Wei

        在作品中,以塑料材質不斷的將自己給包圍著,內部的空氣慢慢地變得稀薄、悶熱,產生不舒適的感受,隱喻著社會以及生物環境那開始呼吸困難甚至無法呼吸的現況,然而,在這圍繞著我的塑料塔之外,還有著無法碰觸但明顯存在著的一條界線,彷彿在訴說著,即使我們走出塔外,依然無法逃離這個現實。

        在形式中,觀者可以走進到塔的周圍,看著受限制的區域存在於此空間中,但在門關上的同時,觀眾已從單純觀看的角度轉變為參與者,並被紅色噴漆圍繞在其中,在無意識的情勢下被這無形的界線給限制住,用這種手法來傳達,在生活中,許多環繞著我們的問題,是無形並不易被察覺的。

In this work, I constantly surround myself with plastic material. The internal air slowly becomes thin and muggy, creating an uncomfortable feeling. It is a metaphor for the current social and biological environment where it is difficult to breathe or even unable to breathe. However, outside the plastic tower that surrounds me, there is an untouchable but visible line that seems to be saying, even if we walk out of the tower, there is still no escape from this reality. 

In form, the viewer can walk around the tower and watch the restricted area existing in this space. But at the same time, when the door is closed, the audience will transform from simple viewers into participants being watched and surrounded by red spray paint. This invisible boundary restricts the audience in an unconscious situation; this work uses this method to convey the idea that in life, many of the problems that surround us are invisible and undetectable.
