「纏花工藝」為早期的民間藝術,與刺繡同為婦女必需修習的傳統女工,用途主要以婚嫁為主,作為新娘以及女性眷屬的頭飾,有傳遞祝福之意,也稱之為「春仔花」。纏花的「花」指的是各種「花樣」,並非特定指植物的花卉,而有各種可能的型態。

 

作品「絲戀」將「纏花工藝」的文化加入故事中,透過布袋戲表演傳達給觀眾,以計畫由紗線藝術家-葉皓宇發想概念,與荷蘭設計師亞河瑞、舞台設計師鄭烜勛、戲劇編劇陸昕慈、台南的古都木偶戲劇團等國內外藝術工作者一同合作,希望實驗出更多創新的「新花樣」。

“Blessing Flower Craft” is a Taiwan traditional handicraft, which is a necessary skill for women as well as the embroidery in the past. In the wedding, the bride and female relatives wear them on their heads as a blessing to the marriage. It is also called “Spring Flower” in Taiwanese. The “Flower” is not only presented in the form of flowers, but also in lots of different style.

 

The work "Blessing" presents culture of “Blessing Flower Craft ” to the audience through puppet theater performance. Leading by yarn artist Derick Yeh, the project is in eastern-western collaboration with Dutch designer Gerard Jasperse, stage designer Cheng Hsuan-Hsun, screenwriter Lu Hsin-Tzu, and Goodoo Puppet Troupe from Tainan, trying to experiment more different “new genres.”
