His Image— Preformance
His is a sculpture and performance art work.
Without referring to his father's photos, the artist carved the wood squares into his father little by little based on the father's image left in his mind. The artist is fighting against fuzzy memories. And try to recall the father's body size, appearance, clothing and shape. But no matter how the artist modified and recalled, the final image of these memory fragments is still far from his father. But the process of sculpting the body is like the process of putting together memories. Because the image in his mind seems to be more and more clearer and sharper, artist will also find the sculpture more inaccurate. It seems that only continuous carving can finally get the appearance of his father. The sculpture itself has become less important in this process, and only the behavior of continuous recalling memories and carving is the way out for the artist to complete this redemption.
