The Grove (4 images)

*I am revisiting my first solo exhibition “Oily Records” (2015) and rearranging the images at lohyipei.com*

Oily Records is a series of artworks inspired by the experience of staying with a kiwi family in an olive grove in Hoteo North, Auckland. I worked as a helper in the grove and olive factory for 6 months. These artworks are made on olive-oil-filtered papers that were utilised in olive oil manufacturing process. These papers, dried and reused, offer an interesting natural background colour along with a unique smell. The reuse of oil filter papers was intended to imply the connection between human activities and the nature, as well as culture and environment.
