盧嬿宇
Lu Yen-Yu

1984年生於宜蘭,2007年畢業於臺灣藝術大學雕塑學系,2011年畢業於臺南藝術大學應用藝術研究所陶瓷組。曾短期駐村創作於美國、日本、荷蘭、芬蘭等地,2012年於宜蘭設立個人工作室,從事陶瓷創作迄今。創作風格主要以人物、動物等複合形體轉換為原創形象,塑造出似人非人、似物非物的變異形體,讓人的樣貌失去具體明晰的規範,隨著當下的心靈反映不斷改變形態。曾獲得臺北陶藝獎、苗栗陶藝獎、臺灣青年陶藝獎、臺灣陶藝新人獎,入選日本美濃國際陶藝競賽、臺灣工藝競賽、奧地利卡芬堡陶瓷雙年展、韓國清州國際工藝雙年展等。

Born in 1984 in Yilan, Taiwan. Lu graduated from the National Taiwan University of Arts, Department of Sculpture in 2007, and graduated from the National Tainan University of the Arts, Graduate Institute of Applied Arts (Ceramics) in 2011. She has participated in short term residencies in the US, Japan, the Netherlands, and Finland. Lu started her own studio in Yilan in 2012 and has been a professional artist ever since. Her artwork focuses on integrating forms of human and animal to create a new figure, which creates a hybrid form that displays a human-like, as well as an animal-like ceramic figure; as a result, the clear and precise contour of the human is lost and altered in Lu’s work due to the changing status of the artist’s mind. She has received several awards, including the “Taipei Ceramics Award,” “Miaoli Ceramic Awards,” “Taiwan Young Pottery Artist Award,” “Taiwan Ceramics Emerging Artist Award,” the “Taiwan Craft Competition,” selected for the “Mino International Ceramics Competition” in Japan, the “International Ceramics Biennale Kapfenberg” in Austria, “Cheongju Craft Biennale” in Korea, etc.
