作品敘述

面容扭曲的「樂高蜜蜂人」正使勁力氣將開瓶器的鑽頭由番茄中拔出,此舉看似荒謬,卻是楊博堯呈現當代消費社會樣貌的象徵性表現手法。在生產過剩的時代,銷售商品有賴於商業與媒體攜手形塑特定階級的生活方式以供人們追尋,透過購買及使用不同商品來滿足個人特定心理需求,無需任何邏輯或理由。因此,把番茄想像成昂貴的進口酒,購買後用開瓶器一拔便能盡情享用,不也是一種生活上的小確幸?

“Lego Bee Man” is using its full strength to pull the corkscrew out of tomato which distorted its face. It seems ridiculous but is a symbolic expression technique to reveal contemporary appearances in consumer society by Yang Bo-Yao. In the era of overproduction, product marketing lies in the way of living of specific class, shaped by commercialism along with the media, for people to pursue and particularly fulfill one’s mental demands by means of buying and using different products regardless of any logic or reason. Therefore, isn’t it such a kind of little things in life to take tomatoes as luxurious import wine and enjoy this to one’s content with wine opener after buying?
