Description by artist Yibai Liao
A piece of rock made by casting stainless steel.
This stone is about remembering your hometown. We are always looking for our own homeland. We are always dreaming of returning to our hometown. Where is your hometown?
So I began to collect the stones, the most common stones; then I cast the stones from all over the world into stainless steel, letting them meet in the process of my search for beauty. A few stone encounters, just like the origin of life evolved into something precious. People are often in love with nature. They will discover roadside stones, make their own sculptures. Nature’s beauty has been found in these common stones.
On the banks of the Jialing River is the homeland of my ancestors. On the edge of the Yangtze River is where I grew up. The Hudson Valley in New York is home to me now. Upon entering the world, it is like this, and my whole life has been evolving... Where is your hometown?
This stone prototype came from New York, the small town of Beacon in the Hudson Valley, a Dutch town full of culture and historical stories. I believe that this stone is just like any computer chip. It carries information, and it carries with it the history of the land.
This work has been on sale worldwide since 2018 and is limited to 3,000 pieces.
