Luo Jr-Shin’s art has always focused on the use of ready-mades, and while using those objects, he often unconsciously becomes aware of the everyday meaning and content behind them and how they would impact the way the audience sees and responds to his art. They reflect memories that are both personal and collective, encompassing habits and lifestyles, as those ready-mades leap away and expands from everyday life, with the ready-made concept thereby augmented and applied to describe and trace the features, formats, and marks found in people’s lives. The word terrarium used in the title originates from the special eco-systems that people use to cultivate plants or animals or conduct observations. A terrarium is implanted with specific lighting and moisture and temperature controls. Luo has created a walk-in space inside the museum, inviting the audience to enter and roam in what appears to be a large terrarium, with a metaphor created. While creating installations and sculptures, Luo also continues to experiment with volatile substances and organic materials. Some of the materials he has used in the past include toothpaste, chewing gum, watermelon, and egg yolk, and he is working with lucky bamboo, coconut husk, and green moss with this artwork. He boldly employs a wide range of everyday materials with gestures of appropriation and reconstruction, resulting in the production of new meanings and contexts. His art explores beyond the relationship between humans and nature, living creatures, and the environment, reaching future to deal with the relationships and interactions between people and objects and also connections between inorganic objects.
