玄雨萌
XUAN Yu Meng

Xuan Yumeng is an artist who focuses on the internal feelings of the youth and the geometric structure of the realistic world under her unique perspective. Illustration creates an illusion for Xuan. As a visual artist with visual problem, the artist perceives the world as an aggregation of symbols and colour pigments on a flat dimension. She believes in the pure connection between internal facts and external expression through the light reflection on the brain. In her works, she challenges the connection between vision and visual art and tries to break the boundary between dimensions.

Ceramic mirrors the artist’s idle and defective self through the endless failure in the progress of creating “perfection”. The conflict between slack thought and self-requirement creates the feelings of inferiority, and the rustic clay becomes the pure approach for the artist to identify herself in a contradictory society.

Xuan Yumeng, born in Qingdao, China. Her works are shown in “Present by Hirabayashi” (2018).

玄雨萌從獨特的自我視野出發,以幾何體構成世界,並關注人類情感。插畫為她造就出幻象:現實世界成為符號與色塊,在平面上的拼湊組合。

在大腦所感受到的光及其反射現象的啟發下,她相信內在感覺與外在表現有純粹的連接。於是她的作品嘗試突破空間界線,挑戰視覺與藝術的關係。在她追求完美的過程中,帶有失誤的陶瓷作品成為她對自身不完美的反射,而純粹的陶土成為矛盾社會下尋求自我的良方。

玄雨萌出生於青島,作品曾在「平林出品」(2018)中展示。

Buried under the normal skin are a struggling soul and a feeble body suffering from chronic illnesses. In my life, invisible illnesses bring about pain and secrets that are hard to articulate with languages. Through the exploration of daily materials, tactile feelings generated from physical touches help me to deliver this emotion and personal experience.

Please feel free to touch.

慢性疾病伴隨著我的成長。與常人無異的表面之下,有著掙扎的內心和疲勞的軀體。我在日常的材料中發掘獨特的觸覺感受,讓那些無法言說的痛苦和秘密通過觸摸來傾訴。
