Artwork Statement
This collection was created for the “Subjective Objects HK” exhibition. Familiar faces and objects in the daily surroundings as well as life’s necessities remind me of my Sunday hike. Week by week and year after year, plants quietly shed their clothes to the change of seasons. These paper sculptures take the form of a book. Each page is a record of a plant’s growth, a representation of time and eternity.
