Piecing – Conversation with Waves

Hudson D. Walker Gallery, Fine Arts Work Center, Massachusetts, USA

2008

 

Two works both called ‘Piecing’ are closely related yet independent pieces. They were shown in a solo exhibition titled Ordinary Days, and were created during the residency at Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, USA.

The pieces were inspired by the location – by its history as well as its surroundings. Provincetown is the first landing place of Pilgrim Fathers in 1620. While I was there, I often strolled on the beach and looked at the sea where their ship had traveled. In such moments, I sensed the repetition and continuity of days –  after their ‘Day One’ up to my ‘today’ (here and now).

The fabric piece Piecing is similar to patchwork. It is small shirt-shaped cotton fabric pieces sewn together. It amounted some12 meters in length in total.

Piecing – Conversation with Waves is a digital print piece and it was shot on a beach of Provincetown.
