About the Exhibition

 

《噢!昨晚我在二樓長椅與一條紅色的蟲相遇》源自片刻喘息間的一場偶遇,是關於「逃脫」或「臣服」於重力之間的抉擇,以及隨之帶來的蛻變或反噬。當生活成為慣性的重擔,即使短暫地休止,身體和心靈仍被拖進無法迴避的選擇。

是次展覽展出18份繪畫作品,為三名學生在各自的生活裡載沉載浮後,共同於重力之下作出不一樣的回應。

"last night i saw a red worm on a long bench" comprises the outcomes originating from encounters occurring in moments of respite. Swinging between the desires of “fleeing from” or “surrendering to” the gravity of reality, one would likely be swept by the spiral of changes or backlash that comes with it. When life becomes a continuous burden of survival, even terse breaks may fail to drag one’s body and mind from the unavoidable.

Sinking and floating, time and again in the thick and thin of their lives, three students created this exhibition and its works, which feature 18 pieces of paintings and drawings. These pieces of art emerged through the responses of these students’ under gravity of reality.
