In a long term of years, a group of craftsmen from Taiwan live with diverse plants in their daily life.
They use their hands, and transform these plants into fascinating objects with enthusiasm.
“Plant an Object”, is the way they live with.
「植物 Plant an Object」由設計師范承宗 (Cheng-Tsung Feng) 策展，他以設計傳承傳統，長期專注於竹材生活器物的開發與創作，基於對竹材的了解進而掌握其技法與脈絡，關懷傳統器物中所隱藏的智慧與技藝，俯身拾起這土地之美，以設計創造當代生活物件與藝術創作。
Exhibition “ Plant an Object “ is curated by designer Cheng-Tsung Feng. Design is the way of transmission. He specializes in bamboo craft design and art, learning from Taiwanese craftsmanship and transform the experience into modern design.
I meet a group of craftsmen involved with plants, encountered the plants which they are enamored on by various chances. They live with sincerity and humility, and turn over a new leaf starting their second life through the plants and their hands.
“Plant an Object” is a term that I discovered from the way of creation from craftsmen. To plant an object, they need to know the plants, soil, season, and to devote time to taking care of plants.
I selected some objects in this exhibition which fascinates me. In the following 3 months, I want to introduce them and the object made by their hand to you.
In the weekend, curator Cheng-Tsung Feng holds ten workshops and lectures, invites you joining us, to meet craftsman who is involved with nature, to hear they telling their story, to be infected with enthusiasm, to Plant an Object together. The lecture are free, and curator will held a guide tour for this exhibition.
