DESCRIPTION (ENG)

In 2012 when journalists managed to reach Liu Xia, wife of the jailed Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo, the poet-photographer-painter who has been under house arrest for more than 2 years cried, "This is too absurd. I think Kafka could not have written anything more absurd and unbelievable than this."

When an artist is denied of his right of communication and narration, what vocabulary and material could he still deploy to express his petition and protest? Let's return to the beginning with 3 primary colours plus black and white acrylic paints.

The series include a 28-colour palette with corresponding colour standard card sets and acrylic paint box sets.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION (CHI)

2012年記者突圍訪問遭軟禁兩年多的2010年諾貝爾和平獎得主劉曉波的妻子劉霞,這位詩人既攝影師既畫家哭嘆,「太荒謬了,我估計卡夫卡都寫不出這麼不著調、荒誕的事。」

當被剝奪了與人溝通和述事的自由,一個創作人還可以用怎樣的辭彙素材去創作,提出控訴和抗議?一切就由三原色加黑白塑彩料開始。

這系列作品包括一套28色的色譜,標準色卡,和塑彩顏料套裝。
