Plastic, glass jar|size diversity|2011-2014

 

Everyone must have his or her own plastic animal. The roughly simplified exotic animals filled our senses of curiosity, and guided you - the intelligent part of the universe - to imagining a civilized utopia. Or you simply like their cuteness. Some of them are made of poor quality plastic smells like toxic. Even the wild scents combined with living animals, excrements, and plants might not be worse. However the plastic smell seems to be the smell belongs to our environment - a smell of reality.

 

Those toys are flaws from the factories in China. They are covered with rough paintings and out of shape. I took those plastic toys as a not yet carved marble and set eyes as starting point to carve out faces. The process is erasing. However in the end it seems that I added a new strange faces on them.

 

You are neither a human nor an animal, but you may be my nature.

塑膠、玻璃罐|尺寸可變|2011-2014

 

每個人從小到大都玩過塑膠做的動物玩具吧。

 

原生在數萬公里遠的異國生物,被拙劣地縮小和簡化成為模型,填補了我們的蒐奇慾,引導者身為萬物之靈的你想像一個合乎文明的烏托邦。但也可能,只是繼續讓你以為動物都應該這麼可愛。有些用到劣質塑料的產品還會帶著好像有毒的味道;即使活體動物混合著草木糞尿的原始氣息都還比較好聞,但那好像才是屬於我們當前環境的味道──現實的味道。

 

這一堆動物玩具主要是中國製造的瑕疵商品,塗裝粗劣或是變形。我將它們(塑膠)視為一塊未經雕琢的大理石,以眼睛為座標刻出他們底下的臉,這過程是全然的減去,然而就結果而言反到像是將一張違和的面孔額外加了上去。堆疊擠壓的壘起成為一座塚。

 

雖然你不人不獸,但你可能是我的自然。
