Find a point on Blavandshuk.

The Point can be a empty space where is on fields of sea side that filed up sand from sea.

This point is a seed of being.

 

First day,

I was panic with wind and had no idea to work in this aria.

But when I was in the beach at night with other artists and Anne,

I felt I will love this aria.

Wind was so strong and I am so small and weak.

 

I started to live in the point of work from morning to evening.

And slowly start to read wind.

I made space for wind to stay.

Wind brought soft sand to the center of the space.

took sharp shells and threw them to out.

 

A small impression track of life is grown.

 

I met small tiny stones in my track.

I brought them to the point where I start.

Small stone tower made the sacred point in the center.

 

I meet with wind in Blavandshuk.

It became a small impression track of life

called ‘Art Work’.

And it will disappear by wind.

Just like a life.

 

Many spectators ask me when I did the spade work.

‘What are you doing?’, ‘Why are you doing this?’, ‘What are you looking for?’ and ask with Danish or German or others what I do not understand.

However, the answer is only

‘ART’

我在海邊占據一角。第一天我有些不知所措,但到了晚上,當我有友人相伴,我愛上了這裡。風是如此狂妄,而我是如此渺小。
白天到傍晚我都在這裡,慢慢開始了解風的話語,我清掉尖銳的貝殼,為風布置一個座位。之後前往這裡的路途中,我都會撿些小石頭,一天一天建立石塔來保護風的位置。我知道有一天這個石塔終會隨風而逝,就像生命隨風而逝。

I'm in seaside to occupy the corner. The first day I'm a bit overwhelming, but at night, when I have a friend, I love it here. The wind is so arrogant, but I was so humbled.
To day evening I have here, slowly beginning to understand the words of the wind, I'm off the sharp shells for wind, setting up a seat. Here after going to the middle of the road, I'll pick up some rocks, day day building stone tower to protect the location of the wind. I know one day, this stone tower will like the wind, just like life. Like the wind.
