廖子盈

LIU Tsz Ying, Grace is a curious person who enjoys independently roaming different areas and disciplines in search for new discoveries which she may utilise for her projects. This attitude of hers also articulates in her creative practice in which she continuously explores new media and techniques across the boundaries between design and arts.

More recently, Grace became interested in applying creative work to life itself by experimentally combining artistic expression with found objects and typology. She enjoys stumbling on a random daily object and doing extensive research with creative approaches to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary. According to her philosophy, daily life and art are best wholly entwined.

廖子盈從小便是一個充滿好奇心的創作者,她一直熱衷於探索不同的藝術媒介和創作方法。從她的作品中,尤其可以見到她喜歡在藝術和設計之間遊走並將兩者結合。

她最近感興趣於利用日常生活中觸手可及的物件試驗更多藝術表達的可能性。又嘗試結同物件和類型學,以創造一系列的藝術作品。她希望能夠在平凡的日常中創造不平凡,積極實踐把藝術融合於生活中的人生哲學。

For nothing and vanity

世上的一切,沒有甚麼能留得住

Found objects, receipts with heat

現成物、購物收據(部分加熱)

Size variable 尺寸不定

這件作品利用收據製作,題目源自聖經中提及的到「凡事都是虛空」。生活在香港這個繁華、重視物質的都市,實在容易迷失落於物質生活中。在享受多姿多采生活的同時,卻感到空虛。

讓我們回歸黑和白,回到最簡。我以黑白的漸變表達隨着時間的流逝,文字會褪退色、回憶會淡化、物件也會變舊。走到人生的盡頭時,更是甚麼也帶不走。或許生活可以很簡單,也許生命是一個等待變白的過程,等待一切悄悄地消失殆盡。

我卻說:『我勞碌是徒然,我盡力是虛無虛空,然而我當得的理必在耶和華那裡,我的賞賜必在我神那裡。』-以賽亞書 49

For Nothing and Vanity is an installation made of found and (partially treated) shopping receipts. Living in Hong Kong, a heavily materialistic society, it is easy to get lost in consumerism and a luxurious lifestyle, escaping reality for a colourful, yet superficial life experience.

In response to my observations, I go back to simplicity, back to shades from black to white. The gradual change expresses a process. With the passage of time, words – like memories – will fade, things will get old. Life is a process of turning everything into white, and waiting for everything to disappear. Yet, subtle traces do remain; white comes in shades.

But I said, “I have labored in vain; I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity; yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God.”- Isaiah 49:4
