transform the unbalanced

stainless steel, zip-ties, 1000×1000cm×500cm, 2022

For a  long period of time, I have been searching for a balance, whether it is to find a balance between the cultural differences between the East and the West, or to explore the balance between the rationality of installation and artistic sensibility, or between imagination and reality. Slowly, I found asymmetrical relationships often unveil the perfect balance.

Steel is a multifaceted metal that embraces the qualities of toughness and ductility. Its glossy plasticity is a metaphor for individual perseverance, resistance and self-breakthrough. Through the baptism between rigidity and flexibility, polish and corrosion, it seems to question the cyclical laws of change and its vitality. Creating the installation is like creating an alternate universe, inviting the onlooker into the world you have imagined. The entire work is constructed from 20,000 meters of stainless steel wire, forming three different levels of bows, representing the great curiosity that needs to transcend its own limitations.

If we liberate our minds and accept different views openly, we will soon realize that we can always find a new way to look at anything. So infinity is something we can create for ourselves. It depends on our ability to think, feel and observe outside the box. This will show us endless opportunities there are to interpret art. The unbalanced bowtie brings the viewer into the visual world of the function through the arrangement and combination of steel wire curves of different length and hand weaving. The asymmetrical bow has a perfect balance and changes constantly in the cycle. The infinite curve seems to tell us that the end of the universe is not only mathematics, but also the art and the beauty of mathematics.
