「 再閲植物繪 」 － 郝立仁作品展
展示畫作之外，藝術家希望作品跟空間互相呼應，也嘗試從物質轉化的角度來思考用品和其與自然循環的關係，轉化在地茂館回收得來的宣紙，弄成紙漿並在過程中加入芝麻種子 (製作糖水的食材之一) 製作成有厚度及印有他創作的繪本圖案的再造紙。此再造紙作品不是消耗品而是可以放進泥土裡種植的一顆小植物，長大後便成為芝麻葉。它可回歸塵土養育生命和萌生新生命。限量20張再造紙作品可在店內購買。

“ Unleash the Plant from Deep Within ”Benjamin Hao art exhibition
An exhibition entitled “Unleash the Plant from Deep Within”, jointly presented by Art Forest and 茂一茂 by Tei Mou Koon, will be held at The Mills from 8 December until 30 December 2018. Local artist – Benjamin Hao will showcase his botanical drawings, through the hands of the artist, the ordinary and mundane herbs were expressed from a fresh angle. When you try to look beyond the structure and growth of the herbs, it is like we have never known them before. The herbs in the illustration also have a connection with our dietary habit. The artist, through the exploratory drawing, expresses his respect and gratitude to mother nature, of which the vitality is endless, and with which we are deeply connected with.
The artist not just wants to showcase the illustrations, but he wants them to interact with the space. Benjamin has put a lot of thoughts into the use of material, and its relationship with the nature. He views the relationship from the perspective of substance transformation. Benjamin collects the Chinese rice paper which was used by Tei Mou Koon (a Chinese dessert restaurant) and sprinkles sesame seeds in the process of paper recycling. The recycled paper is thick and printed with his botanical illustration. Instead of being consumed and extinguished, the recycled paper can be buried in mud and grow into tiny sesame leaves. They can return to where it comes from and nurture new life. A limited collection of 20 recycled paper is available at the store during the exhibition period.
