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.
