劍山
Kris Kang

劍山是本私人家庭寫真。此書是Kris「加利福尼亞家族」系列作品的前導篇章,以自己與母親的回憶為主軸。書的呈現精簡、書頁輕薄卻感覺貴重,紅色的硬殼使書看起來有份量,裝幀則與佛經相同。劍山的影像分成兩個部分,一個是作者與母親相處的紀錄,一些他們可能一起去過的地方、聖誕節的家中一景......,另一部分則是作者母親插花的身影以及那些被母親呵護過的花照片。劍山是插花時所需的固定基座,也是作者的兒時記憶中代表母親的物品。於是不單書成為記憶的載體,劍山本身就是一座聚集回憶情感的容器。

KENZAN
Kris Kang

“Kenzan” is the prequel of Kris’s series of work called “California family”. The photobook recounts a memory of the author and his mother. The exquisite red hard cover contrasts with the light weighted paper inside, and the orihon binding makes this book delicately precious. There are two sides of the book: One documents the times they were together, such as the photos of the places they’ve been, or a glimpse of the Christmas tree in their house...and so on; The other is the silhouette of his mother arranging flowers and shots of these beautiful flowers. “Kenzan” is actually a specific tool used in the art of Japanese flower arrangement. It is used to position flowers in the container. Furthermore, the kenzan was a symbol he associated with his mother in his youth. Thus, “Kenzan” is not only a book that aims to preserve a memory, but the object itself is also a collection of familial love.
