“The work takes place in a virtual space where the moving character represents us, the audiences who are able to travel freely without boarder.

There are two sculptures connected to each other with many ‘links’ in the space, where Liu’s sculpture is based on the ancient Chinese philosophy – balance between positive and negative natures of a human; and Golem’s is a boy trying to remove the nail pinned on his foot seeking for release and freedom.”

ToA Connect is a creative project connecting artists through digital implementations – collaborating traditional artists/designers with new media or converting computer languages into art.

In a world of digitalization, the use of computer has become an alternative or the next generation of pencil and ink. With the increasingly importance of new media, we would like to collect, connect and explore the interactions between traditional art/design practice and digitalization through this project.

Through accumulation of creative concepts and educational implementations, Time of Art (ToA) operates and manages traditional artistic heritage, develops platforms to showcase innovative ideas, bridges traditional with contemporary art whilst aiming to be the pioneer and promoter of creative culture.

Watch curator, Marcus Wong, in conversation with host, Adolfo Aranjuez, talking about the artworks from ToA Connect.

Connection by Jinglu Liu and Golem Klon VIII is presented as part of ToA Connect and Mapping Melbourne 2020-21.
