I am looking for the basis of my work from the Xiāo Yáo Yôu(逍遙遊)of the Chinese philosopher Chung-tzu(莊子).
Xiāo Yáo Yôu, the main subject of Chapter One from Chung-tzu, means to live free from worldly cares, following the heart.
In other words, it means to pursue a life free from restriction and reliance,
that is, the spirit of ultimate and absolute freedom. I am trying to put the spirit Xiāo Yáo Yôu into life, an effort based on my artistic expression.
And recently, I am working with a lot of inspiration from the story of Bung bird on the chapter of Xiāo Yáo Yôu.
THE STORY OF THE BUNG BIRD
There is a big fish in the far north sea.
The name of the fish is Gon.
Gon’s girth is so big that it doesn’t know if it will take thousands of miles.
The big fish turns into a big bird.
The name of the bird is Bung.
Bung’s back is so big that it doesn’t know if it will take thousands of miles.
When Bung flies full of wind in its chest, his wings look like clouds in the sky.
The bird decided to have a trip to the south sea when the sea move.
The quail laughed at Bung as it saw it fly away.
“ Where is he going? If I jump and fly up, before I flap my wings into the bushes. That is the highest point that we can fly.
Where is he going”
