DAMOCLES (ongoing)

 

 

DAMOCLES, 2019 – ongoing bound stone series, sculpture, with wool fibers. Exhibited suspended in air, occasionally on pedestals.

The Damocles sculptures allude to power, bonds, ties, and war. Stones have a rich history in and of themselves, being from the earth and of matter, their relationship to human beings started before being wielded as tools. Used for cultivating fields or warding off enemies, stones have also been culturally used to punish and abuse. For the complex associations with stones, they are used in this ongoing body of artworks created to look with curiosity at the nature of doubt, fear, dread, and anxiety. Tied together by soft fibers, only knots and structural tension to hold the stones together. The colour choices of thread are often made with reference to the source of the stones. The site of the stones’ origins is important to the cognitive experience of the sculptures. Though pigments have dynamic and varied cultural associations, the pigments refer to the actual conditions the stones were sourced from, for example: plowed fields bound by brown thread, porous stones from streameds bound by blue, and road or horse trail stones bound by twine such as that used in basket weaving or leash making. The bound stones are suspended in air, wielding an experience foretold in The Sword of Damocles, where the experience of welding power comes with great pressure or anxiety. The bound stones suspended, or on pedestal, reference relationships of power in individual lives, such as friendships, marriages, and business contracts. That which binds separate entities requires trust. Fibers can wear out due to varying factors, while others grow tighter or smoother over time. Vulnerable to tension or cutting, the stone entities rely on the fiber to remain in contact. Damocles (tied stones) project began during The Trélex Residency in February 2019, after years of rumination, and has continued for years after, and many more to come.

The wisdom of water is the emergence of the emotional body in social practice. Water, according to the Chinese theory of five elements, serves as a symbol and material pathway to the movement and expression of emotions. Water, as symbol and material pathway for energy, is viewed in the new society as sacred to the human experience. The water is to be protected, cherished, and shared amongst people to create a more humane society.

 

물의 지혜는 사회적인 삶에서 분출되는 감정과도 같다. 고대 중국에서 말하는 5대 원소 중의 하나인 물은 움직임과 감정 표현의 상징이자 도구다. 과거 깨끗한 물 관리에 소홀했던 때와 달리 새로운 세계에서는 물을 소중히 여긴다. 새로운 사회에서 물은 에너지로 통하는 길이자 에너지의 상징이다. 이것은 성스러운 인간 경험이다. 그러므로 더욱 인간적인 사회를 구현하기 위해 물을 보호하고 소중히 다루어 모든 이가 공유해야 마땅하다. 물을 아끼고 존중하는 것은 곧 우리 인간 사회를 구성하는 감정을 아끼고 존중한다는 뜻이다.
