來自藝術家的問候>> Chris 蕢至 say Hello to Children

Lee, Kuei-ChihHello everyone, I am very happy to come to Cheng Long wetland again this year. I was born in Tuku town, Yunlin county, and grew up in Taipei. I often create artwork in different places,and especially like to creat in the natural environment. Sometimes I go back to Chenglong Elementary School to visit children and villagers again, when I pass through Yunlin county. Do you remember? Now I live in the mountains of New Taipei city, and the ecological environment here is good.  The Taiwan Blue Magpies wake me up sometimes in the morning.
哈囉大家好,很高興今年又要去成龍了。我在雲林線的土庫鎮出生,在台北長大。我常常在不同的地方創作,尤其喜歡在自然環境下創作的經驗。偶而經過雲林時,我會到成龍國小拜訪小朋友和村民,你們還記得嗎?我現在住在新北市新店的山上,這邊的生態環境還不錯,有時候早上還會被台灣藍鵲叫醒。

I love to use natural materials and flowing images to make my work and talk about the story of myself and sometimes link to the local society. I am trying to make my work become the poetic image in a different place and convert it to a bridge linking the human and nature.
我喜歡使用自然素材與流動的意象製作作品,述說著自身故事,有時與地方社會作一連結。試圖讓作品在不同地方成為一幅幅詩意的圖像,並成為人與自然之間的連結橋梁。

I created “Relic 2046” in 2016. I remember having created a lot of future creatures with many children at that time. And after that, I went to many places to create more artworks, such as Taiwan(Keelung, Taipei, New Taipei, Hsinchu, Taichung, Yunlin, Chiayi, Yilan, Hualien) , Japan(Nagano), South Korea(Gangwon-do, Busan) and Iceland(Garður).
我在2016年創作了「遺跡2046」。我記得那時候跟小朋友創造了很多未來生物在裡頭。之後在臺灣的基隆、台北、新北、新竹、台中、雲林、嘉義、宜蘭、花蓮與日本長野縣、韓國江原道與釜山,冰島加爾澤也都有創作作品。

“蜃景-陸地幻景(Mirage-Land Illusion)”

I curated a small land art festival in the rice fields for Qingshui district, Taichung City, Taiwan in 2016. In 2017, I did Keelung’s public art project and created a work called “Mirage”. It was a land-based illusory coral reef sculpture created using abandoned equipment from fire power plants in combination with driftwood and marine litter.
在2016為台中清水規畫了在稻田內的小型地景藝術節。2017年在基隆的公共藝術作品「蜃景」作品,那是一個使用火力發電廠的廢棄機具結合漂流木與海廢物創造的一個陸地上虛幻的珊瑚礁體雕塑。

起風 (Windy)

In Japan Nagano Prefecture I participated in the “Japan Alps Art Festival” organized by the famous Japanese curator Fram Kitagawa, and I created a “Windy” work using local branches at the top of the mountain.
在日本長野縣參與日本知名策展人北川富朗先生策劃的日本阿爾卑斯藝術節,我在鷹狩山山頂使用當地樹枝創作了「起風」作品。

In 2016, I made the work “Songshan Bamboo Meander” at the “2016 North Coast Art Field” festival in Shimen district, New Taipei City. In 2017 I created the work “The Ripple Maze” for the “2017 Ilan Green Expo” and the work “Flowing light” at the “2018 Chiayi Taiwan Lantern Festival”.  These were all large-scale bamboo works and included participation with the local community.
在2016年北海岸藝術祭時在新北市石們創作「嵩山竹曲」、2017宜蘭綠色博覽會的「漣漪迷宮」與2018嘉義臺灣燈會的「流動光景」作品,都是結合社區一起參與的大型竹子雕塑。

It was also an honor to be invited to participatein the “Fresh Winds International Art Biennale 2017 – 2018” in Iceland, which is a very different experience creating in the land of ice and fire. In addition, they decided to keepmy work “Flowing light” in Chiayi city in place when the festival ended. Chiayi city is not so far from Cheng Long village, and hopefiully I can have the opportunity to take everyone to see it !
我也很榮幸受邀參加2017-2018的冰島國際藝術雙年展,在冰與火的國度創作真的是很不一樣的體驗。另外,嘉義的「流動光景」作品在活動結束後原地保留,嘉義離成龍村不遠,希望有機會可以帶大家一起去看看囉!

About my work in Cheng Long wetland this year. I will use recycled materials such as bamboo and oyster shells to make it, and through the wind and water elements try to respond to the changes of the Cheng Long wetland over these years. It looks like the number 9 and also looks like a spiral.
今年在成龍濕地的作品,我會使用在地回收的竹子、蚵殼等材料,以風、水元素的流線回應著藝術在此的改變,它看起來像是數字9,也像是一個螺旋。

Hope see you soon and work with you again!
期待和大家見面,並再次一起創作!
