An International Group Exhibition
Friday 22 April to Sunday 22 May
Title: Leftover 2021
Media: Silk Gauze, Goose Down, Hair Extension
Size: 22”H x 13”W x 4”D, 55 x 32 x 10 (cm)
In 2018, I made a work called Leftover with the same title as this time. I made three skulls by gluing silk gauze in the same way as last time, but this time,I planted individual hairs on the skull and pierced a small lump of goose down made like beads. The three skulls were braided at the ends of the hair.
I observed a dead bird. The bird lost its shape in four or five days, leaving only bones and feathers at the end. These skulls, hairs and feathers are metaphors of the impermanence and insubstantiality of all life.
This work is a reproduction of the theme of the previous work, and was made using the materials used last time, reusing hair extensions, and using goose down from old duvets that are household waste. They meet the concepts of reuse, reduction and recycling.
Gallerium Art Exhibitions proudly presents Extinction: Save the Planet - 2022 International Smart Online Group Exhibition. The exhibition opens on April 22, 2022, and will continue through May 22, 2022, and showcases 255 artworks from talented artists worldwide. Artists have always been the conscious mind and heart of society, and now, more than ever, their role in raising awareness about environmental issues and concerns is highlighted. A recently published UN climate report (Monday, April 04, 2022) warns humanity that the world is on a fast track to an obvious disaster, and scientists argue that it is "Now or Never" to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.
