Objects of Love Artwork #8: Dried Flowers by O.Works
A keepsake is a kind of proof, and a promise between the giver and the receiver. Recently we have invited eight creative units to participate in making artworks for our feature story, More Than A Pledge, in our 2015 Autumn/Winter edition. These artists defined, in their own unique way, what their imagined keepsakes would be like, thus becoming this series – Objects of Love – which is now sold exclusively here on Obscura online store.
This set of light bulb installation is a one-off limited item, made by O.Works. It composes of two rectangular wooden boxes, two elongated light bulbs and dried flowers, which resembles the dragon and phoenix candles used in a Chinese wedding ceremony. Here is what the creator said about this piece:
“Day gives night hope and night, in turn, rests and recuperates for the sake of tomorrow. Within this repeated cycle of day and night, they exist side by side, closely bound together and stretching out over a lifetime. In a relationship, light also always presents itself in the company of darkness. Love is about giving and love can serve as the lamp that lights the way for the other – illuminating each other, offering guidance and encouragement.”
Note: This set of light bulb installation is an artwork and for decorative purpose only.
信物是個憑證，也是發送者與接收者之間的承諾。我們早陣子請來八組創作單位，參與創作《Obscura》2015秋冬季號專題《MORE THAN A PLEDGE》的作品，以各自的方式，勾勒出信物的輪廓，成為這一系列名為「Objects of Love」的藝術品於Obscura網上商店獨家發售。
