作品敘述

紙本身是一個世界,它的歷史從東方傳到西方,西方紙最重要的地方在西班牙,我對紙有感覺是在西班牙,發現這種簡單的材質和對象,可以表達很大的空間,不只關於它的平面、立體造型功能,你的想法可以很簡單地透過它豐富表達出來。

對紙已經是三十七、八年的接觸了。第一次是我在工地看到工人搬水泥。水泥袋是50公斤重,用紙包裝的,看他一包一包摔下去都沒破,每一摔重量不只50公斤,不管怎麼動、怎麼搖,重的水泥用輕、軟的紙包住,都不會有問題。所以說,紙這對象、物質、質材透過人的行為,變成另一種展現、另一種空間。紙可以表達我的思想,和40年來走過的路。

我目前用很多數字,數字本身應該是沒有意義,沒有意義是說,沒有「既存的概念」的意義。我用的東西是大家都親切,大家每天都見得到、但卻絲毫沒有感應的。這些有時可以很自由很單純的以數字表達。

The fundamental thing about paper is that it lacks hardness. At one point, I made paper installations, and I was expressing something other than a usual memory of the concept of forces. I used prepared paper to hang objects weighing as heavy as 50 to 100 kilos – even hanging a wooden table from a piece of paper.

I have been worked with paper for 37 or 38 years now. The first time was when I watched workers move cement. Each sack, 50 kilos, was wrapped in paper. Each sack was more than 50 kilos, but no matter how it moved or shook, when heavy cement was wrapped in light, soft paper, nothing happened to it. That is why through human conduct, the object, material, or medium of paper unfolds and become a kind of space. Paper is able to express my thinking, and all I have seen and experienced in the past 40 years.

The numbers on my pictures bear no significance in themselves, in terms of having “set concepts.” I am simply using things that everyone is familiar with and can be seen every day, but hardly realized at all. Sometimes, this can be freely, and very simple, expressed in numbers.
