At first, I just wanted to talk about secrets. Who among us doesn't have secrets? In this world, everyone has a lot to talk about. If you have no one to talk to, you may well be suffocated by boredom. Then, let ‘s do some storytelling.
What connects people better than sharing stories? At the beginning, there are three stories. The main characters are Tsui Kam Man, Kwok Wah Sang and So Mei Kam, who travel between Hong Kong and Taiwan, and struggle to survive in the city, just like you and me. Their lives inspired five creative practitioners, Joe Fang and Chung Lun Wu from Taiwan; Edward Chiu, Jason Lam and Jean Tsoi Wai-Yin from Hong Kong. Each of them uses different media to elaborate on the details of these narratives. Audiences are immersed in this story-world, engaging freely with the digital platforms and the physical exhibition, looking for themselves while pondering on the proposition of life and death. What is our raison d'etre? If you believe that the four walls block your way, you may realize that these walls are amorphous after the visiting experience. Walls could be a sandcastle that falls at the touch of a blow, but they could also be bulletproof. The four walls indeed cannot deter you at all. Humans are good at building windows--one here, another there, and all lead to the world. The fourth one is the story of the female writer，Song Dan Jing. Her tale, covering the first three stories and the interpretation by creative practitioners, also determines the exhibition format. From text to the three-dimensional world, let us travel beyond the boundaries of life and death, let us be with you.
Here are a few tips for you, take these as hints if you like:
P.S. Where does one's torment come from? I keep thinking about that. Through cross-disciplinary collaboration, we connect you with the story plots. You may find a connection between the lines, or be struck by personal memories and sorrows listening to the melodies; you may accidentally look into the mirror without recognizing yourself, or be seen as a character in a play when you try to focus on reading. These are the puzzles to be filled by the visitors. The scene and the room will not be completed until someone walks in and goes through every corner of it. Have a nice trip.
