Liberty of the Wind

Lam Duen Shan Ming

The inspiration of this guangcai collection came from a couplet found in the chapel in Tao Fong Shan Christian Center, which says “the wind (holy spirit) travels liberally and the road (the way) is with god.” This collection of work consists of nine pieces of Canton porcelain. In Chinese, the word “nine” is an infinite number, which echoes with the multifaceted shapes and forms of wind. Wind can sometimes be heard, and sometimes cannot be seen; it is sometimes touchable, but sometimes unpredictable. Each piece bears one of the brushstrokes of the Chinese character “wind”, and each is made using different traditional porcelain painting technique to express the different states of wind. The meaning of the works changes according to the perception of the viewer.
