ART WORK – CROWN – DICTATOR’S TOY

 

Freedom,equality, sovereignty,human right.
Our society is like a dictator,using various slogans and declarations to manipulate us,telling us what good,bad,and beauty is. What makes a good society is the way that people seek beauty in life. This crown is not only a dictator’s toy, but also a power plant.
What I’m trying to say is, we are just like that mouse on top of the crown. Working so hard to achieve its own ambition. It seems like the mouse is fighting its own battle, but actually it’s just a single tiny part of the power plant. Most of us are dictator’s toy.

Does people really need dreams ? or it’s simply because we’ll feel panic when everyone has one but we don’t ? Do we truly know what we want ? or it’s because everyone told you that your dream is worth to achieve ? If we don’t figure out these questions, freedom may not be the same definition we know. Dreams may be the reason why we can’t find happiness.

 

自由平等、主權在民、天賦人權。我們的社會就像一個統治者,利用各種漂亮的口號蠱惑著我們,專制地定義了什麼是善、什麼是惡以及何謂美好。而人們對於美好事物的追求,則促進了社會的運作。這頂皇冠是社會這個統治者的玩具,同時也是一座發電廠。我想透過這個作品表達的是,我們就好比頂上的那隻老鼠,終其一生盲目地追逐著幻影,看似為了自己在拼命,實際上,只是發電廠中的一個零件。大部分的我們都只是這個社會塑形出來的玩物。

我們口中的夢想、人生目標、慾望,究竟是發自內心的渴望 ? 還是因為其他人都想要呢 ? 我們擁有夢想,到底是因為我們真的需要 ? 還是只是另一個社會根植在我們心裡的刻板觀念,人要有夢想 ” 才 ” 偉大 ? ? 如果不正視這些問題,自由就不再真的自由。夢想也會成為我們牢籠,隔絕快樂。

這個盲點自古以來都一直存在著,沒有改變過。所以我透過銅的仿舊處理,以及用樹酯模仿包裹著老鼠的乾屍的琥珀,營造一種經過時間洗禮的感覺,來呼應這個議題的年代感。希望能夠透過這個作品向觀賞者提問,並讓他們重新審視自己,思考自己的人生方向。
