Set of 13: size variable
2019

Clay from fields in Taishan was used to make this set of ceramic bowls. My childhood was spent in Taishan. That place shaped me into the person I am today. The rice fields form my strongest impressions of Taishan – the fresh straw smell, the small creatures in the fields and playing in the mud. In recent years, the farmland in Taishan is gradually disappearing and being replaced by new construction. These bowls preserve the soil of where I once played as a child, preserve my fading memories, and also present the changes to farmland in Taishan.

我用來自台山農田的泥土製作這套陶瓷碗。我的童年是在台山渡過的,那個地方塑造了今天的我。水稻田是我對台山最強烈的印象:新鮮的水稻氣味,水稻田裡的小動物,在泥濘間玩耍⋯⋯近年來,台山的農田逐漸消失,被建築物所取代。這些碗保留了我小時候曾經玩過的土壤,保留了我褪色的記憶,也呈現了台山農田和農業的變化。
