“copy/memory” is one of the function keys of multi-functional

inkjet printer. It is clear command for the printer, however, if

placed in wood-carving, it will be another interpretation.

in this exhibition, I tried to show a sculptor to observe and

research the object and what the experience of wood sculptor is.

in the age of renaissance, an artist, Leon Battista Alberti, research and experiment should not be

buried in oblivion by artists. Therefore, to carve a detail of

plant for sculpture, I refer phytology to study and observe the

cat grasses. According to the daily record of their growth, I

carved their different form of growth.

Is it possible to show the memory for carving the wood?   The wood smelling is always attached to the sculptor because of touching the wood. To let the people get the memory of the carving process, I try to

produce the smell of carving. There is a lab set to extract

the smell with carved wood chips from the wood sculpture.

Even the people never make a wood

carving, they still have experience and

memory of carving through the smelling liquid.

when “copy” juxtaposed “memory”, it would be a planting ecology

system. During the smelling extraction, there were some residues

produced. Since it included some nutrition for planting, it

would help the cat grass to grow well. Therefore, there was a

installation of smelling extraction to express how the sculpting

(copy) correlated to the smelling extraction (memory).

Gradually, I’d like to present my research of copy/memory with my sculpture. It is my honor to be a last show of the A-lift gallery CHECKPOINT.  Thanks Iris and her assistance Shek.
