理念 | Statement
這件受自然啟發的裝置,模仿蛾繭的形狀,提供人類與植物一處臨時的庇護所。作品由生物可分解的複合媒材組成,包括:絲、竹與麻繩。與環境相互作用時,結構會隨著時間的推移而改變形狀。這段崩解過程讓公園裡的動物與昆蟲可以收集與再利用這些絲線,打造屬於他們自己的庇護所。

昆蟲與人類共生了好幾個世紀,我們利用牠們珍貴的纖維來妝點自己。我希望這件作品能讓觀看者對昆蟲產生同理心。

Silk Cocoons is a nature-inspired installation that provides a temporary shelter for humans and plants while mimicking the shape of a moth cocoon. This piece is comprised of mix media biodegradable structures made of layers of silk, bamboo, and jute. The structures change their shape as they disintegrate with time while interacting with the environment. This disintegration sequence allows animals and insects of the park to collect and reuse the threads of the silk scraps for their own shelters.

I hope that this installation will generate empathy with different bugs that have been cohabiting with humans for centuries dressing us with their precious fibers.

Lua Rivera藉實驗去理解、產出以求生存。對她來說,藝術可消除學科間界線,促進彼此更自由交流,也讓超越美術館圍牆的展覽得以發生。Lua創作基於如築巢,生長和生物適應等過程。做為一名視覺藝術家,她持續不斷尋找與運用跨領域資源,如:介入、拼貼、攝影與織品。

Lua Rivera

Lua Rivera experiments to know, and produces to survive. For her, art can erase the boundaries between disciplines, promoting free interaction between them and allowing the exhibition to transcend the walls of the gallery. Lua based her artwork in processes such as nesting, growth, and adaptation of organisms. As a visual artist, she is distinguished for her continuous search and use of multidisciplinary resources such as intervention, collage, photography, and textiles.
