DESCRIPTION (ENG)

In my work Aura, the idea of a rejuvenation of death is demonstrated. Of the withered leaves I have collected, after the treatment of antisepsis process, their final state could be maintained. With my setting of the shoot, their ravishing beauty was revitalized. Originated in the 19th century, when the infant mortality rate was high, the parents would dress up their deceased children for posthumous portraits. This is a play back of the moment when the lost ones were alive.
The set of work is composed by a 3mins video and four large format photos.

在作品〈靈光〉中,我把拾回來的枯葉防腐,停止了他們的新陳代謝,把它們停留在生命最後一刻的狀態,為著讓他們在攝錄機前唯美地重生一遍。作品啟發自十九世紀初,父母親們會把自己早逝的孩子,裝扮成在生的模樣,並把他們的身體置於照像機前坐著,是為了回到他們生前最後時光,並把影像永遠留著。
整套作品由三分鐘的錄像及四張攝影作品組成。
