SHELL SPOONS







SHELL SPOONS

Sculpture
Bronze, Shell
2020


The inspiration for this work comes from my grandmother.
I accidentally discovered a shell-shaped scar on her leg,
and she told me that this scar was gouged out by a shell when she was a child.
I believe the scar is like a mark left by nature on my grandmother’s skin.
The shells are not only the spoons in nature,
but are also a metaphor for hurt.
Through this work, I hope to convey my respect for nature and encourage people to embrace their miserableness. Because our world, life, and nature are all the components of beautiful and painful.




贝勺

雕塑
铜,贝壳
2020


《贝勺》的灵感源自于我的外婆。
有一天我发现她的腿上有一个贝壳形状和颜色的伤疤。
原来是在她小的时候,她的膝盖被河边的一块贝壳剜去了一块肉。
这个伤疤就像是自然给她皮肤留下的一个记号。我认为贝壳不仅是属于大自然的勺子,也是伤痛的隐喻。因为我们的世界,生命和自然都是又美又痛的。
