Confrontation, 2021

©︎2021 Cao Zhiyu. All Rights Reserved.


This work was inspired by the hostile relationship between humans and viruses. In “The Main Role”, there is a concept called ‘the coexistence of all things, yin and yang complementarity’. In this way, everything in the world catches fire of civilization in the midst of entanglement and conflict. Although it is a small spark, there is no doubt that it will become a big fire someday. The war against the virus has already made the body full of wounds, but the antibodies made by it have sprouted life, and if danger lurks again, the reborn gas will surely bloom the most brilliant flowers.



인간과 바이러스의 적대관계에서 영감을 얻었다. 《주역》에 ‘만물상생상극, 음양상보’라는 말이 있다. 세상만물도 이와 같이. 얽힘과 충돌 속에서 문명의 불꽃이 붙는다, 비록 작은 불씨이지만, 언젠가는 큰불로 거듭날 것임에는 틀림이 없다. 바이러스와의 전쟁으로 인해 이미 상처투성이의 몸이 되어버렸지만, 이로 인해 만들어진 항체는 생명의 싹을 남겼고, 만약 위험이 또 도사린다면 다시 태어난 유기체는 필히 가장 현란한 꽃을 피울 것이다.



作品灵感来源于人体和病毒之间的抗衡关系。《周易》中提到万物相生相克,阴阳互补。
万事万物莫不如此,在交缠与碰撞中汇集出文明的火花,虽以星星之火,但终将呈燎原之
势。人体与文明一般自成一界,虽在与病毒的不断斗争中早已是遍体鳞伤,但其造就的抗
体,却留下了生命的萌芽,当危险再度来临,涅槃重生的机体必将开出最绚烂的花。
