CHOW Mei Kwan

Ancient symbols are Chow Mei Kwan’s research project. She believes symbols are a form of spiritual healing. Her works are mainly related to symbols and the spiritual such as the flower of life. She uses jewelry as the medium to show the relationship between spiritual and human body since the ancient totem usually appears in human decoration. She also uses seal and graphic design to capture the pattern of ancient symbols.

周美君關注靈性與符號,並相信藝術是靈性治癒的其中一種形式。她的作品主要涉及靈性治癒,以首飾作為媒介,配合圖騰與符號,展現肉體與靈性之間的關係。

Go back and forth.

We are born with a completely blank mind and we develop “ourselves” through different experiences in life. The back-and-forth pencil traces on the cube symbolise our existences in the past, present and future. The audience can either rotate the cube or erase the traces. However, even after erasing the pencil traces, the eraser residue will be left, just transforming it into another form.

All those we have experienced can never return or come back, but only memories are left.

來回來回。  

人出生就是一張白紙,經過不同的歷練形成自我。立方體上來回的筆跡象徵著我們的過去、現在和未來。參與者既可以轉動這個立方體,也可以為其抹去痕跡。然而,即使擦去,也會留下擦膠碎,只是將筆跡轉化為另一種的形式存在。

所有經歷過的,不能重回,不能復回,只能留下回憶。
