The Taste of Life
When we were young, our parents told us that we need to be honest. However, when we grew up, the world taught us not to be honest and to put away all our real emotions and thoughts. If "took the flowers, then constructed the buildings" is the sorrow of the disappearance of nature. Maybe “dry all our tears, and then put on a mask” is the most suitable way to describe our busy urban life.
Growth may be a timeless subject. There are no shortcuts or guidebooks for growth. All we can do is to adjust ourselves in every situation and keep learning from every challenges.
In this online exhibition, we displayed various Apple Tong’s artworks to let you experience a different taste of life.
人工癒合 The Healing Zipper
到漸漸長大成人，他們卻訓示我們跌倒要爬起來，不許哭。難道長大了，跌倒便不痛? 我們就不能哭 ?
When we were young, we fell, parents always comforted us and wipe the tears from our eyes. Ironically, when we grew up and became an adult, they told us not to cry when we fall. Is it mean adult couldn't get hurt when they fall? Can we just cry out loud like a baby when we fall?
Eventually, we attached a healing zipper on our wounded heart, swallow all the tears and lock up sadness and painful with one pull.
The Guiding Light
I climbed to the highest mountain, walk through the sea of clouds and thick fog because of you.
All of your light shining in my eyes and light up my darkness.
