Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
My work explores imbued objects and notions of nostalgia and desire. These objects can stir memories and are used mnemonically to create, store and retrieve a sense of past. My work is a response to aspects of my experience, focusing on the personal connection to these objects through childhood reverie, identity and contemporary collecting practices. As a child I was obsessed with ornaments and anything frilly and pink, cake decorating was a particular focus and I longed for the most decorative cake on my birthday each year. I wish to investigate how these objects and decorative processes have a capacity to evoke memories and aid the return to childhood reverie in adult life. Exploring the role of material objects to form identity and their power to evoke strong emotions and generate longing. I use cake-piping techniques with porcelain to create dreamscapes as spaces for these imaginings and reveries to take shape. The use of porcelain in my art making practice is integral as it connects me to the rich history and human connection with figurines, ornaments and decorative techniques.
