JUN Hei Ri

Jun Hei Ri usually base her work on her personal story, such as issues or thoughts about her and her family. She does not work with a fixed medium as she explores with different aspects and medium in order to express her ideas in a dynamic way. When looking back at works she created, she finds that even if the works express similar ideas, the difference in medium and methodology seems to be able to deepen the meanings. She has a tendency to make artworks that tell stories, as she thinks that if an artwork contains your story, you will treasure it more and treat it as your lover. For example, when you make artwork base on personal issues from a sad incident, you will no longer be stuck in a depressing state. You will be able to overcome it and heal as all your emotions are expressed through your artwork. Moreover, you won’t be ashamed of your past stories anymore. To Jun, art is healing and contains all emotions.

全慧利的作品主要以她自己作為故事——既關於她的想法和意念,又關於她的家人。

在創作時,她沒有固定的形式或物料,以求嘗試從不同的媒介及途徑去展現她的所思所想。有趣的是,即使她圍繞著同一主題進行創作,只要創作的物料和方法不同,作品的含意便會改變,令作品有了深淺不一的意義。對她而言,當一件作品包含個人故事時,其價值是無法衡量地珍貴的。她認為藝術是她治療心靈的方法:創作成為她抒發個人情感的器皿,因此她把一切的情感都放進作品當中。

I take inspiration from a Bible verse: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:18‬). The form of mosaic assembling using small pieces of fragments at church is another source for this work. Through the characteristics of used material wax and the continuous process of melting, reforming and breaking wax, the personal experiences on the road of religion are thus symbolised. By arranging and repeating red and white text, the audience is invited to think about the meaning of each word and the hidden coherence between these words.

從聖經金句「原來我們不是顧念所見的,乃是顧念所不見的;因為所見的是暫時的,所不見的是永遠的。」(‭‭哥林多後書‬ ‭4:18)得到靈感:由個人信仰出發,透過所用的物料——蠟——溶解、重組、再瓦解的特性,表達在信仰路途上的經歷,並且在重覆的詞語上以朱白文印去處理,令觀眾對同一個詞語產生不同的思考。
