『邊界。游移』 - 呂宗憲個展
The use of symbolism appears widely in our daily lives. We often overlook its existence and meaning, yet we are deeply influenced by it. That is to say, the world is dominated by symbols; were our lives deprived of them, the modern society would loose control and collapse.
In Border/ Drift, the artist aspires to reflect this theory through his paintings and discuss about the interconnections among the personal experiences of space, symbolism of images and works of art.
The symbols around us steer our behavior. We can move forward only by perceiving and following them. Consequently, also in life, an invisible power forces us to fulfill the social expectations, loose ourselves and loose our direction. We vacillate between the self and social standards; hoping to redeem the self, we constantly loose our way on the edge.
