創作理念

在這次駐廠創作中,非常高興能找到可以回應環境、與機械化生產直接相關的創作素材。我以「剪頭尾」為創作元素,發展出兩種造形,一是12片葉瓣,令人想起蓮花;另一形式則是「輪子」,讓人想起行進中的太陽。我的作品除了具有自然與運動向度的象徵,亦包含對工業社會的思考。作品結構有著強大的工業特質,透過藝術創作的介入,反映出人類在現代工業生活中似已受到蒙蔽的本質,並能重返自然世界,與地球上所有自然事物緊密連結。

About the Artist

Nikolay Polissky was born in Moscow in 1957. He graduated from the Mukhina Higher School of Industrial Design in Leningrad, and was a member of the Mitki group of artists. He moved to Nikola-Lenivets in 1989, and started to create land art by using natural materials such as snow, wood, and hay. In 2006 he established the festival called “Archstoyanie.” He was frequently invited to show his works all around the world. In 2008, he represented Russia and exhibited in the 11th Venice Biennale of Architecture.

Artist's Statement

During the residency program, I was glad to have found creative materials that responded to the environment and were directly linked to mechanized production. I used these “cut-off edges” as creative elements, with which I developed two designs; one featuring twelve leaves, reminds people of a lotus flower, and the other is a “wheel” that reminds people of the rising and setting sun.
My works not only symbolize nature and movements, they also embody my thoughts regarding the industrial society. The structural elements in the works display powerful industrial quality, and through the intervention of art creation, it reflected human nature that seems to have been veiled by the modern industrial lifestyle, so that we can return to the natural world, and reconnect closely with all the natural things on earth.
