Taming the Beast

馴服野獸 Taming the Beast| Annual Project路瓦·里維拉 Lua Rivera

藝術家路瓦·里維拉(Lua Rivera)將人類廢棄的回收布料重新利用製成裝置作品《馴服野獸》。工業化後的文明產生出各式的廢料,如同一隻失控的野獸般不受控制,而無固定形狀的裝置呈現了對無法控制的過量廢料的恐懼形象。藝術家透過搜集廢布回收再利用的方式以延長期使用壽命,並賦予新的文化價值。同時也促使觀者反思紡織業所產出的廢料問題與找尋解決方案的可能性。

「讓今天的商品成為明天的資源。我們可以一起馴服這頭野獸。」— 路瓦·里維拉

This work is a portrait of a shifting era where we are struggling to find solutions for the overwhelming amount of waste produced by society and industry.

During its installation the public is invited to learn the weaving technique while adding new layers to the piece. At the same time this action creates an open discussion about the textile industry and the waste and the search for alternatives and solutions for the future.

Taming the Beast embraces a partial solution for the waste problem by promoting the use of waste material for culture making. It invites more companies to collaborate with artists, culture centers and public in general to ease the access to materials to extend their useful life letting the goods of today become the resources of tomorrow. Together we can tame this beast.

About 路瓦·里維拉 Lua Rivera

路瓦·里維拉於2013年畢業於墨西哥莫雷洛斯自治大學視覺藝術學院,並於2016年獲得碩士學位。透過藝術創作來消除既有的限制與思維,在作品間的自由互動與延伸,使展覽跨越了藝廊的展牆。她關注於生物遷徙與築巢等行為,反覆思考「巢」所象徵的意義,並和人類的居住作為對比來進行一系列的創作。同時透過織品、拼貼、攝影不斷的探索織物的再利用與可能性。

Lua Rivera makes art to erase the boundaries between disciplines, promoting a free interaction between them and allowing the exhibition to transcend the walls of the gallery. Lua based her artwork in processes such as nesting, growth and adaptation of organisms. As a visual artist she is distinguished from her continuous search and use of multidisciplinary resources such as intervention, collage, photography and textiles.
