Located in the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Horse, Mountain or Water is a sculpture and public art created by famous sculptor and block printing artist Dawn Chen-ping. In this piece, Dawn focuses on “circulation and penetration,” a concept pertinent to his creative career. Different panels were used to form various shapes, that were melted and drilled. Through the drilled holes, viewers gain a peephole that breaks the established forms and limitations of traditional sculpture, turning the sculpture into a structural component in space, inspiring thoughts on the differences between 2D and 3D objects.
Dawn believes that 3D objects are an accumulation and extension of 2D objects. Sculpture art to the artist is like three-dimensional surfaces wrapped in ribbons. The concept is similar to paper boxes being 3D when closed and 2D when opened. Viewers can experience different aspects from the various angles of the artwork and become a part of the piece during this viewing process; bridging the gap between 2D and 3D entities.
