Her Life
含羞草

Planting is my mum’s hobby. Mimosa Pudica is her favourite plant. She waters them and prunes them; I reckon that she has projected the passion of living onto plants. When leaves fall, she gives them some fertiliser and another leaf will grow. She is like Mimosa Pudica, she must take a pill a day for her health. This is an ongoing project, which I will develop based on the number of pills she has taken. It is my record for her.

種植是母親的喜好,她特別喜愛栽種能給予反應的含羞草。每天起來,她會為他們澆水和修剪枯枝。她根據他們的大小起名字,一邊澆水一邊和他們聊天。
我總認為母親把生命投射在含羞草上。當花綻開,她會很高興、安慰。每當有葉枯萎掉落時,她會默默地加幾滴營養液於土壤裏頭,然後新葉又會開出。她猶如含羞草,每天吞一顆藥丸以得到健康。這是一幅持續的作品,基於她吞下多少顆藥丸而畫成。這是一個我為她而作的紀錄。
