"Memories washed ashore by time" Wang Min Solo Exhibition
“Perceptible phenomena may be likened to waves, which are an expression of the deep-lying disturbances below the ocean surface, of which we know nothing.”
Gustave Le Bon - The Crowd: A Study of Popular Mind
Individuals are the imperceptibly puny froth atop the waves of society. They are incapable of resistance whenever economic billows come surging on. Whether it be our forward strides hastened by the paths beneath our feet, or the sea froth whose undulations are driven by time, all of these invariably lead to a single end point. The words “Home” and “Hotel” shed light on today’s dual living condition. People are in constant search of a homestead for the soul, yet in reality we find ourselves on the road most of the time.
On this stretch of ocean surface, people can’t help but flock together to keep warm. You, I and they are merely travelers who - to no avai - wish to grab onto the driftwood of life amid the sea of faces.
