Ever since we are detached from our parents, we start to observe our surroundings. By navigating through architectures and machines, examining faces and emotions, re-shaping fantasies and realities, we establish ourselves as individuals. On this journey to individuality, we find ourselves attached to familiar figures, landscape, routines and thoughts, celebrating the sense of belonging and certainty. Meanwhile, having distance allows individuals to reflect on situations, to examine one’s rage and courage, to define and redefine identities, to embrace and to reconcile differences.
On both personal and social scales, this exhibition explores numerous unexpected dynamics between detachment and attachment. Swinging back and forth between these two extremes completes the motion of a pendulum. To achieve equilibrium, we restlessly seek to rebalance, constantly attempting to break through the institutionalized dichotomies. Thus, we allow new possibilities to take root.
