About Hsu Yung Hsu

 

Treating the body as a creative tool, the artist devotes himself entirely to the field of ceramic art. He emphasizes the dialogue between the body and his artworks, and confronts the clay by integrating the subject with the body. His artworks are created on the basis of the interplay between the world and his perception as well as tactile and algesic senses within the clay-based structure. To create the purest and finest ceramic artworks, the artist not only adopted complex and painstaking procedures of production, but also exercised his superior skill in kilning. Through the constant process of deconstruction and reconstruction, he successfully transformed the heavy clay into delicate lines and shapes. His awe-inspiring, extraordinarily “large” but “thin” ceramic works, along with their charm of innovation, all resulted from such a refreshing contrast. Following his philosophy of life, that is, “transcending life through life, transcending artistic creation through artistic creation, and finally transcending life through artistic creation,” the artist keeps challenging himself, expecting to transcend the confines of life and artistic creation.

 

 

The artist embedded his whole self-consciousness, body and life deeply in his works. Each piece of his works is created under the complex procedures of constant fluidity, repetition, and accumulation. The artist physically transformed the materials, using his own biological instinct to interweave and superimpose them into “nests” and “apertures.” Born from the artist’s body, these nests and apertures tried in vain to resist their instinctive drive, and therefore created the spaces that drift from the divine realm of Chronos to that of Aion. As far as the artist is concerned, nothing is more genuine than the aforementioned senses of life and existence. The artist exemplifies the senses with the two exhibited works. By virtue of absolute corporeal and spontaneous actions, he applied his living experiences to transforming the originally heavy porcelain clay into his delicate ceramic artworks. They seem to be in a state of proliferation and sprawling. They are simultaneously the parts and the whole, associated yet decomposed, and fractured yet connected. They not only reflect the thriving of natural desires, but also symbolize the sudden and dramatic surge of creativity.
