Viko Zhijune

My work revolves around the mundane and the neglect. Not so much about people, but of spaces, within the built environment. In our habitat, there are lots of under utilised spaces, example the corners of buildings. And many a time, we encounter potted plants many of which are left there to wilt, and we wonder why… My work is to uncover the rudimentary beauty within and bring viewers to contemplate the echoes reverberating in spaces where time stood still for a moment…

我的视觉创作,始于自己与爱的修行。我依据我想像的爱虚拟出一个安静 — 连旋律都是安静 — 的环境,好让我可以好好地依偎着,它可以只是个空间,也可以是个什么都不是的情绪。植物的形象,我一直都很迷恋。它们不会说话不会吵闹,它们爱这世界的任何东西,包括死亡。除了它们,没有任何人事物比它们更懂爱。而我想试图靠近他们一些,利用它们将枯萎未枯萎的状态,营造一种缓慢的蔓延感,并以不协调的画面切割,而将想象延伸至画布外不被纳入的景致。孤独是一切存在的本质,它漫不经心地使我的灵魂匮乏,然后默默地为我的创作上色。

“或许辨不清日升日落
或许看不到流云晚霞
不知道耳边溪流,咫尺可达
不知道天地浩瀚,人间喧哗

但我知道
星河在上,波光在下
我在你身边
等着你的回答”
