ART.ZIP: In terms of your personal learning and creativity, what is the relationship between you and the school studio space?

ART.ZIP: 那對你個人的學習和創作來說,學校的工作室和你之間的關係是怎麼樣的呢?

SY: Personally, the school studio space is not particularly significant to me, because on the one hand, I do relatively smaller artworks, and on the other hand, my creation is not necessarily in need of a particular studio space to engage in. The studios that the school provides for students are merely passive space allocated for students in a temporary period of time. And the school’s activity arrangement such as exhibitions and summer short courses often affects our use of the studio space. Therefore, I don’t really like the studio space that the school has offered. It is only in the case I have a clear work plan and objective that I will go there, otherwise I prefer to go to the library or café for reading, or do paintings at home. The studio for me is just a symbol of identity as an art student hence assigned with a specific space.

SY:對於我自己來說,學校的工作室空間並不是特別重要,我的作品都不大,而且我關注的方向也並不一定需要工作室才能進行創作。學校提供給學生的工作室在屬性上對學生來說是一個很被動的空間,是一個臨時性的,被分配的空間,而且學校的很多安排比如展覽和暑假短期課程都會影響到我們使用工作室空間,所以我並不是非常喜歡學校提供的工作室,我一般是有了明確的工作計劃和目標的前提下才會去工作室創作,除此之外,我更願意去圖書館或者咖啡廳看看書,或者在家裡畫畫。工作室對我來說,就是一個身份的符號──我是一個藝術類學生,所以被分配了一個工作室空間。

ART.ZIP: Do you have any ideal studio space in your mind?

ART.ZIP: 你心目中有沒有一個比較理想化的工作室空間的構想?

SY: It has to come with a large table where I can practice calligraphy and ink painting, since in the past I have been receiving training in these two areas, and they have become an indispensable part of my life. But this does not count into the space of art practice, but for leisure and fun only. Besides, there should be a place for drinking tea, preferably with a small bed where I can lie down whenever feeling tired. Ideally the studio is a factory-like open space with the possibilities of various creativity and experiment, which may be in a cluttered condition, nevertheless, I don’t mind it shows the sign of life in the studio, but the areas for work, relax and living should be accordingly divided.

SY:要有一個大的畫案,能畫畫水墨畫和練練書法,因為以前一直接受這方面的訓練,很難割捨,不過這個區域不算是藝術創作的空間,算是休閒空間,另外還有喝茶的地方,最好還有一張小床,累了可以躺一下。工作的空間希望是一個工廠似的開闊空間,可以進行各種創作和實驗,可能會比較雜亂,我並不介意在工作室裡流露出生活的痕跡,但會分割出來創作用的空間、休息空間和生活空間。
