〈花蓮.花園〉靈感擷取自波赫士(Jorge Luis Borges)小說《小徑分岔的花園》,藝術家回到從小最熟悉的海邊:花蓮溪的出海口―木瓜溪,沿途採集沙丘(亦為嶺頂考古遗址所在地)上隨處可見的陶片、貝殻、石頭及雜物等,將其做成球體,放入展場中已搭建的軌道,讓其以地心引力的方式自顧自地前進。藝術家透過實地遊走,發掘各種對於時間和空間地理的感受,那些「曾經存在」可能沒被我們發現的,它真實的存在過。換言之,我們也是以同樣的方式存在著。

 

The installation Garden was inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ novel The Garden of Forking Paths. Wang returned to the beach he was most familiar with as a child, at the mouth of the Mugua Stream, where he gathered shells (whole and fragmented), rocks, and other objects from the dunes (the location of the Lingding archaeological dig site). He attached these things to the surfaces of large spheres, some of which were placed on tracks to roll around the installation as pushed by gravity. By wandering around the beach, he discovered in himself feelings related to time and space. Things that once existed may not be discovered by us, but they still existed. And that is true of our own existence too.
