Appreciation towards Cheng Tsung FENG for providing the following description:

「阅读如海,在名为阅读的大海里,我们徜徉古今中外,前进四面八方。」

Reading is like an ocean, it is boundless and endless, and we are like riding a small boat, wandering in the sea, through reality and fiction, between different identities and to everywhere of the world.

新竹州图书馆是位于新竹市中心有百年历史的古迹建物,封闭了近四十年来逐渐被人们遗忘,地方政府与新光人寿共同将这座珍贵的古迹修复重启,并邀请策展人与艺术家们进入其中进行艺术创作,以展览形式重新让人们走入其中认识这个充满历史魅力的地方。艺术家范承宗的创作都与传统手工文化有关,这次受邀为已有百年历史的新竹州图书馆所创作的空间装置作品,他所关注的题材是中式线装,一种具有悠久历史的手工书籍装帧方法。

Taiwanese artist Cheng Tsung FENG always focuses on traditional handcrafted culture. For the large-scale installation art for Hsinchu State Library, his subject is “Chinese Stitched Binding”, which is a kind of book binding method with a long history.

意识成为文字,文字落于纸张,纸张被针线穿孔捆绑,便终于集结成书册,范承宗将这项装帧技术自平面变形成立体,成为数千本浪形书册单元,他欲唤起一座磅礡的书海,涌进沉睡已久的馆舍中。

When the idea becomes text, the text falls on the paper, the paper is bundled through the rope, and it finally assembles together as a book. FENG transforms this binding craft from a plane into a three-dimensional curving unit (over 1000 pieces), then he combines the library’s space to create a giant installation just like a big wave that is facing to people.

在为期半年的展出结束后,作品将被细心拆解,回到数千本书册的模样,并在封面手工随机印上创作幕后的图稿与编号,这些书册将随人们一起流出馆舍,前往各处开始承载起各种故事,一如百年来在此更迭轮转的历史时光。

After the exhibition is over, this work will be carefully disassembled into thousands of books. FENG will hand-print the sketches and drawings of this work with numbers on the cover. These books will leave the building with people and go everywhere. People will write their stories in books, just like the history of reincarnation here for a hundred years.
