Title                   The punishment of Tantalus

Year                   2018

Materials         Black walnut; Brass; Glass; Magnifier; Resin; Feather; Cocoon;                                            Loudspeaker

 

This inspiration of this work from the part of music torture in Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights. Through the mechanism of the punishment of Tantalus, I created a new mechanism which can control others through audio. In several dimensions of magnifying glass’ view, we can see seven different little worlds. ‘they’ are being tortured.

The work hopes to explore and reinterpret the phenomenon of individual behavior being controlled and watched by external perspectives and sounds.

*Tantalus offended the gods and suffered in hell. He stood in the deep water. Whenever he was thirsty. The water immediately flowed away from him. Whenever he wanted to eat the fruit from the tree in front of him, the fruit rose in the air.

本作品从Bosch绘画作品《人间乐园》中音乐酷刑部分汲取灵感,以坦塔罗斯故事的惩罚机制为背景,创作了一个新的以声音控制他者的机制。即在几种维度的放大镜观看视角中,观者可看到7个大小不同的罐子内的小世界由底部音源驱动,内有形态大小不同物品或震动或旋转…“他们正在被进行酷刑。作品希望探讨个体行为被外界观点,声音控制并观看的的现象,对其进行再演绎。

注解:

坦塔罗斯得罪了神祇,在地狱备受苦难和折磨。他站在深水中间, 每当干渴想喝水,水立即从身旁流走;他又饥饿难忍, 每当想吃眼前树上的果实,果实就升向空中。
