UNION 2018



Tamás Szvet: UNION (2018)
Mosso bamboo, 300x200x20cm
Zhúzihú Yangmingshan; TAIWAN

The project created during the Bamboo Lake Environmental Art Project artist-in-residency program in the Yangmingshan National Park has focused on the view of nature. According to the Gaia hypothesis [1] in microbiology, all living organisms interact with each other on Earth, to form a complex system that helps to maintain the conditions for life on the planet. From this point of view, we have a strong union with nature; therefore we must protect our environment as it is like our own body. In the work a human shape opens, and we can see the mountains of Zhuzihu behind, or rather inside the figure.

[1] formulated by the chemist James Lovelock and co-developed by the microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s.

《天人合一》
在陽明山國家公園竹子湖藝術家駐村時,我特別關注看大自然的角度,並表現在我的竹子創作。根據微生物學中「蓋亞假說(註1)」,意旨在地球的所有生物都會互相影響,在地球上形成一個生態循環。從這個觀點來看,我們與自然有很強的連結,因此必須保護環境,像愛護身體一般。我的作品裡,不僅可以透過人的輪廓,見到後方竹子湖的山群,且存在於由竹子構成的空間當中。

(註1:1970年代由化學家詹姆斯洛夫洛克及微生物學家琳·馬古利斯共同提出)
