BBuzzArt - Discover Future Masterpiece



The installation stand as a massive soft sculpture of men’s tailored suit in 3600% enlargement, making it around 4 meters tall, with a play of space where the viewer can go inside the structure and observe the details from the inside.
For this artwork, I took the challenge to expose and enlarge a highly complex construction of tailored suit. A well built men’s tailored suit, even though look sleek, simple, and highly functional, is one of the highest priced fashion item on the market. The reason this piece is given so much value is because to achieve the perfect fit and enhance the built of the wearer’s body requires complexity of the construction beneath. It requires the finest tailoring technique combined with excellent understanding of the construction. What could we discover by deconstructing a garment with the highest construction complexity and enlarging it as a whole in 36 times its normal size?
This artwork exposes how deceiving the outside appearance could be. The deconstructed tailored suit exposed the paradox and true meaning in “less is more”, where the complexity lies right in the utmost simplicity. It is true that simple does not always mean plain, that to achieve the “effortless” and flawless simplicity requires endless developing process on the construction, yet this process often unexposed and untold.
In this installation, the exposure is not done partially on several portions, but as a whole garment. This is an unconventional take on deconstruction as the artwork has no mean to destroy or distort the form of the garment yet building it as a full piece of a garment, only eliminating one layer on the inner lining to uncover the inner details of the giant men’s tailored suit. It is the kind of gentle deconstruction, where it is done merely to discover the essence by eliminating the layers covering it.
This gigantic installation represents my euphoria upon finding the essence, started in the deconstruction on little details, finding hint of truth beneath and then realizing that the truth is much bigger than our body, it exposes itself through the construction yet lays beyond the construction, uncontained.

The tacky style, disturbing contents and rough emotion! All the elements in this artwork are unified to create such an impeccable piece.

The style is characterized to be structural with provocative contents in this artwork. The overall atmosphere is to be rather creative.
