    王筱雯

來自獲獎無數的台澳藝術家,歷經四年籌備的展覽,這組作品的靈感來自王筱雯對海洋的熱愛以及這六年來生活並探索她的原生島嶼-台灣的經歷,在這次的展覽當中,王筱雯使用雕塑及裝置來探索這些存在於海底世界的脆弱之美。
本次展覽百分之十的收益將捐贈至傳奇海洋學家席薇亞 厄爾博士所領導的海洋保育組織“藍色任務”。藍色任務旨在建立對物種保護具有重要生態意識的全球海洋保護區及全球網路,“去保護並修復海洋;地球的藍色心臟。”

From the award-winning Taiwanese-Australian artist, comes an exhibition that has been 4 years in the making. This body of work is inspired by Wang's deep love for the ocean, and informed by the past 6 years of living and discovering her ancestral island home, Taiwan. In this show, Wang uses sculptures and installation to explore the fragile beauty of the underwater world.
10% of proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Mission Blue, an organisation led by the legendary oceanographer, Dr. Sylvia Earle. Mission Blue's goal is to create awareness and a global network of marine protected areas, 'to save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet'.

藝術家自述:
在我們星球裡有超過80%的海洋尚未被開發,生命卻在深處蜂擁著。這件的裝置作品靈感來自那些生活在海洋裡的發光動物們的秘密世界,同時向世界裡的未知之美致敬。
過去兩年的時間,我追蹤這些神秘生物如同掉進了一個無底洞,對於身為地球一部份的人類,所知甚少。我們的海洋確實是這世界裡最遙遠的邊境,充滿了奇異與怪異的生物,其中有些甚至難以被想像。
本次展覽中的每個生物都有自己的故事,但藉著它們,也只能了解這個美麗迷人海洋生態的冰山一角。海洋與生物幫我們吸收高達31 %的二氧化碳,及90 %人類排放的熱量,所以也減少了氣候變遷對地球的影響。難過的是,如同我們大部分的自然世界,這個脆弱的生態不斷地受到過度捕撈、海洋污染及全球暖化的威脅。
這次展覽是關於我發現並感受到的敬畏與驚喜,亦是透過揭示來喚醒保護我們星球這寶貴部分的必要性。

ARTIST STATEMENT:
Over 80% of our planet’s oceans remain unexplored. But life swarms in the deep.
This installation work is inspired by the secret world of bioluminescent animals that reside in our oceans, and pays homage to the unknown beauty of our world.
For the past two years, I have followed these mystical creatures of the deep into a bottomless rabbit hole, to a part of our planet that we as humans know very little about. Our oceans are truly the last frontier of our world, filled with wonderfully bizarre and alien creatures, some of which can scarcely be imagined.
Each of the creatures in this exhibition has a story to tell, but they represent just the tip of the iceberg in our understanding of an ecology that is sublimely beautiful and fascinating. The oceans produce over 50% of our oxygen, absorb the carbon dioxide and excess heat from our emissions, limit the effects of climate change, and also produce food for almost 2 billion people every day. Sadly, like much of our natural world, this fragile ecology is under constant threat from overfishing, pollution, and global warming.
This exhibition is about the sense of awe and wonder that I have discovered. It is also about evoking the need to preserve this precious part of our planet, by bringing it to light.
