Poetics of Materiality: It is and it is Not
MetadataShow full item record
This research project is my investigation of materiality, the physical/non-physical aspect of things, in art and its relation to the ontology of things, with a particular focus on material potentials, the interrelation between material art, space, artist, and spectator. The material experimentation in my research project reveals itself through my artistic creation, both 2D and 3D visual art media such as sculpture/ installation and drawings. Through sculpture/installation artwork, visual impact is created by addressing the whole space of the gallery to generate a potential condition of material through scale to dominate space. The use of unusual and ambiguous materials in vast quantities is intended to transform the space, stimulate the imaginative mind of the spectator and to generate meaning by immersing the viewer in a vivid psychological encounter.
