A Secret Chamber for PeaceA Secret Chamber for Peace

A Secret Chamber for Peace

Jacques Kaufmann , 2007

The work consisted then to translate the Character “An” into a full 3 dimensions work, through the logic of the process of building with bricks. This process is made of repetition, like a meditation work, brick after brick, layer after layer, like if the peace needed this strong attention of every single moment, through time. The red color is requested through 2 levels : at first, to give more energy for “An”, secondly, to give a strong relation of the sculpture with its environment, in the park and with the surroundings of the park. The title “A Secret Chamber for Peace” is related to the logic of building the wall : during the process a secret room was created. It remains this secret place, inside each of us, which is necessary to welcome this feeling of peace.

Assaulting Normandy Ice Cream

Hsu Chia-yu , 2007

The desert is used to symbolize desire. Turning ants into soldiers is both a metaphor and satire. By removing the cruelty of war, we see only a contest of desires and the reality of such absurdity. The artist believes that wars are merciless and begins with unchecked desires, which seem to reflect on the weaknesses in human nature. There have been countless wars waged for glorified causes while blatantly neglecting the suffering of victims.

Do you know who I am? Light, fire, wind, or a tree? The time wheel never stops rolling, and I still don’t know what I’m going to be at next time.
