Release
Live animals, paper, video 2016-ongoing

Release is a series of works inspired by the Buddhist practice of 'life release', which sees captive animals bought and released into the wild.

Aside from the action of releasing the animal, the project developed unique ways to record the animals' movements in the moments leading up their release.

For example in the case of the birds' release carbon paper was installed in the bottom of the cages to record the marks made by the animals' claws.

Weatherfish were rubbed with nontoxic red ink before being allowed to move freely over paper. The resulting
prints are unique records of movement, life and compassion.

放生

放生
一系列的灵感来自于佛教的“放生”行为。除了放生这活动以外,本项目在放生之前有使用独特的方式记录动物的动作和生命。

比如,鸟笼的底部放着复写纸,以便记录下鸟爪的痕迹。放生泥鳅时,让粘上红墨水的鱼在纸张上自由活动,做出充满活力的构图。每幅作品都独一无二,是仁爱的体现。
