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
