Living in Memory

On view: March 8–14
Opening reception: March 10, 5–7pm | Artists talk at 5:45

 

We yearn for the past.

 

Because the past is the present, it is the origin, the accumulation and the consequence of our existence.

Meanwhile, we are using our current, flowing, elapsing time every second to yearn for the past, the dead, the still, the immutable past. This process is a solemn ceremony.

To a certain extent, it is also a grand waste.

We are aware of this waste and yet continue wasting it.

 

When you see me, 

I'm already far away from myself.

 

 我们怀念过去。

因为过去是现在的组成部分,是我们存在的起因,经过和结果。

与此同时,我们也在用着我们现在正在进行的,流动的,每分每秒都在消逝的时间去怀念着过去已逝的,已死的,静止的不可改变的过去,这个过程是一个郑重的仪式。

从某种程度上来说,也是一种盛大的浪费。

 

当你看到现在的我时,

我已经离我很远了。
