Expanse of Territory

25F|Ceramic 27x22x28.5cm 2017


The movement of birds from standing still to flying exemplifies fluent dynamics, reminding us of life's essence, which is also fluid and surprising.

The artist employs simplified, organic form to put together diverse, moving birds that have one leg, multiple wings, or are single-sided.
The birds are frozen in time, revealing a transitory moment between movement and stillness.

Birds are always associated with freedom; however, when creating this series, her mind oscillates between a sense of unfettered freedom and a habitat that confines one's freedom.
