Statement

Tattered Masterpieces

 

With the belief that historical records carry with themselves the identity and mindset of the people of any land, there have been efforts throughout time to preserve and protect what remains from the past. Our historical heritage has constantly been faced with a battle against the phenomenon of deterioration, destruction, dissolution, and transformation.

 

It is indeed a difficult and complicated task to preserve and maintain what came to be but now struggles not to perish in its confrontation with time.

 

The preservation, protection, and confinement of objects and books in museum cases stems from our awareness of the need to resist against their mortality and destruction; destruction at the hands of termites who, if not deterred, will turn every single paper into dust overnight or slowly feed on the intertwined threads of silk fabrics and brocades. The penetration of moisture into such collections will dissolve the colorful existence of any objects within.

 

Infestation sometimes reaches structures and gardens, gradually leading to their transformation and destruction. Wars have also always been a serious threat to human legacy, accelerating this destruction even more. 

 

In this collection, I have reproduced a part of these historical records that have faced transformation and destruction through deliberate interference, with another part dedicated to registering and depicting the decay historical artifacts have faced throughout time.
