我想像那是一个安放石头的过程。如果在墙根放一块合适的石,路过的人会不会就想到把腿往上面放,从而翻身到墙的另一头,去看另一面的风景?

有时大小正好,需要的不过是把它指出来。有时跑到老远去拖回来又发现不合适。有时实在无事可做,只能等着,待着。很多时,石头是一张邀请一个引诱。更多的时候,放一片石其实无他,只不过是自己想要爬过去。

假如说,会看见这段字的,都是在不同场域里找寻着石头的人,那这展览就可说成是位同业者的,薄薄的一份工作报告,请随意翻阅。

至于,这份报告可能是关于一种无力感。我们想看,永远想看更多。然而我们又只能看,只能用观看,在世界和自己之间建筑起一段距离,从没有选择的余地。

当看见和知道互相扣连,那么一个好奇的人自然会问,看不见和看见,何者较为广阔,何者较能包裹"更多"?

Wong Wing Sang: The Slowest Wind

Opening: 2018.01.07 (SUN)  15:00

Duration: 2018.01.07 - 2018.02.10

Address: Yile Road No.51, Jinle Building Fl.3rd, Rm307, Haizhu District, Guangzhou, China


I imagine it as a process of placing a stone. If a right stone is placed under the wall, will passerby step on it, climb over the wall and have a look of another side?

Sometimes its size would be so fit that only needed to be pointed out. Sometimes it doesn’t suit no matter from how far it was dragged. Sometimes nothing can be done and just resting and waiting. Stone is usually an invitation, a temptation, or just a personal wish to climb over as always. 

If the people who read this text is the one finding the stone in various fields, this exhibition would be a slight work report from associates: please feel free to read. 

This report, meanwhile, may be related to powerlessness. We always want to see more than what has been seen, yet keeping our distance from the world by seeing alone. We unavoidably watch the past, death, self and others, with folded arms. There is no choice.

When seeing and knowing interweave, one will spontaneously ask “un-seeing and seeing, which one is wider and able to cover ‘more’?”


— Wong Wing Sang
