WAITING FOR THE WIND

     I have worked with the theme 'Waiting for the Wind' since 1997. Waiting for the Wind started with an attempt to eliminate the volume and weight from the traditional sculpture. The first work of this series is a figurative sculpture which are two girls facing the wind. Then, I created several deformed relief made of acrylic resin using my clothes from childhood dance practice. Later waiting for the Wind grew to be an outdoor installation using taffeta fabric, photos and video works. I say 'Grew' because the term was appropriate for this task, and learned a lot through the years I created this series.

     After years of creating waiting for the Wind  the concept of waiting became more important than the wind which was more important when I started this series. Waiting for the wind outdoors sometimes means to endure the wind or face the wind and I learned that when I wait for something I need to go to meet it rather than just to wait. Wind is invisible but exists. Wind comes and goes. It is worth waiting for because it will eventually come.

     Waiting for the Wind was created from the inspiration I get from something outside and then came to me, while I am Happy is work from inside me toward others and outward.
