Boundaries exhibition explores the borders in our life, it subverts the border demarcation between private and public space.

About

Our memories are free floating, these thoughts fly beyond the boundaries, we can experience the collective memories of loss through various objects. The boundary of history floating in community archives, the invisible boundary controls our human psyche, the boundary of language becomes replaced by emojis. To reveal or conceal an identity, to suppress or express your fantasies, desire and fear, to push or constrain the boundaries of bodies and minds.

This exhibition intends to experience the oceanic feeling that linger between dream thoughts and waking life, wandering around the physical and invisible boundaries. Our bodies hold the symbolic meaning of boundaries, it could be your skins or the clothes you wear, while our minds hide our inner self within the boundaries. Through the various formats of boundaries, one can constrain the access of place, another can reconnect to prove belief; one can evoke a disconnect in technology, another can blur the boundary between AI and creativity.

We experience boundaries that are out of our control, they might limit our movement and impede our direction. Others might be out of reach, unobtainable to grasp and walk upon.

(‘Keep Out’ or ‘This Way Please’.

It's hard to always remember where you were, let alone what you did last night.) 

(It's those who you want to remember that stick around, a lingering smell or the taste of something oh so sweet.) 

(That in-joke only you get, or are we just posting memes. What do we really think, what's that on the tip of your tongue.)

(I like it when you do that, just hold me after.) 

(Lucid dreams, day dreams passing by. It’s all been such a blur.)

(Goose bumps to stretch marks, can all be wrapped up, hidden, or flaunted. No one can see what's inside anyway.) 

(Enclosures and gated communities, pay in or stay out. A private public pass, with step-free access.)

(As it turns to flesh when it touches your lips. As it all turns to ash in the blink of an eye.)

(Remember the tone of Dial up? Maybe I forget how old I am, maybe let's talk to something else.)

(Perhaps we might just get out in time)
