Wish we could meet again soon
Audio-guided Walk (Cantonese)
Duration: 25 minutes
As part of the 'Pink and White Shower Art Bazaar' curated by nomad nomad HK [in collaboration with HKBU AVA x The Murray Hotel HK]
Taking the idea of time capsules as a point of departure, the workshop invites participants to collect the petals and leaves that detached from the Pink and White Shower tree into a prepared vacuum bag. In the meantime, they also need to put one of their personal belongings (which can be very tinny) together with the picked petals into the bag, and then the artist will help to vacuum and seal it.
Instead of looking up high and appreciating the opened flower, those fallen petals and leaves also present the beautiful cycle of nature that shows time. The tree's blossom was a rare piece of good news last year during the outbreak of COVID-19. A year passed, the tree bloomed again. The epidemic is still happening, but we grow much, living with the contingency of life. Who knows, what this place will be like in the future? Who knows, would we have a chance to meet again because of the tree's blossom next year?
Therefore, participants are welcome to talk with the artist about their thoughts on parting during the event. They are also welcome to keep the sealed bag or leave it to the artist. However, once they choose to take it home, it can only be unsealed when the Pink and White Shower blooms again next year.
