About the work
Boats are vessels that carry their own burdens and those of time passed, as well as the vast and distant hopes of others. Sculptor and installation artist Po-Chun Liu has created a metallic art piece with a “boat of time” with a rusted, dilapidated exterior as its central concept. Propped up by stiff steel chains, this boat emits blue light alongside the sounds of the ocean breeze and the lull of the ocean through the holes in its timeworn hull. Liu tries to evoke an impression of the sea and a sort of dense unity, in addition to conjuring a mood of unease and contradiction.
