創作理念 Creative Concept
The Artist, Yen-Hua Lee, has been exploring her creativity with concepts like time, space and memory. In her "Book" series, she explores the similarities between memory and flipping through a book, and the residual memory that is left behind. Through the process of reading a book, she tries to prompt our brains to recall our own memories or search for lost ones.
In the "Home" series, she applies the "Book" concept to spaces, trying to extract new meanings. She believes that happy or painful memories are the overlapping of time and space, and these memories are an important source for the internal quest of "ourselves".
In her " Searching for: Spiritual home " series, the core concept aims to let audiences realize that all of us are just looking for ‘our home of the heart’. The physical space and the memory of the home we live in will change as time goes by and as people come and go. But we can search for our ‘internal home of the heart’ by combining memories from different space and time, and then obtain emotional satisfaction and resonance by sharing it with others.
"Searching for: Spiritual home" is not only a process of searching for personal memories, but also a powerful way to calm our unsettled mind.
