Symbiosis  共 生

Hectic lives and cumbersome rules have numbed our senses and weakened our connection with the world. Symbiosis unfolds the harmonious coexistence between nature and humans by presenting mixed media artworks which go beyond mere plant arrangement. It aims to revive the relationship between the audience and nature. The artworks are a narrative of the artist’s journey of self-rediscovery, and may guide you to yours.

忙碌的生活與繁瑣的規條,麻木了我們的感官,連帶與外界的連繫亦變得薄弱。藝術家曾秀儀於「共生Symbiosis」展覽中以植物為創作核心素材,展現人和大自然融和共生的關係,希望重啟觀賞者與自然環境的關係,引導他們探究自我,這些作品也記錄了藝術家拾回自我碎片的自身體會。

Harmonious Discord

Instinct

We are surrounded by greens. Trees on the roadside purify the air, yet their growing branches will be chopped off. Greenery adds to the residence’s value, yet it can only be seen from afar. Lawns create space for relaxation; yet walking on them is forbidden.

 

Plants are being used intentionally to our advantages, and everything provided by nature is being consumed by us unknowingly. The intimate relationship between plants and humans has been evolving for a long time.


While we are struggling with our hectic life and fight for survival, spending time on self-care and reflecting on our relationship with the nature become a luxury.

 

Here you will be with the plants. Please take a deep breath and let the unique smell permeate you. Let it help to reconnect the disconnected and to rediscover our relationship with self, nature and the world.

我們被綠意盎然包圍。馬路旁的林木淨化空氣,而其茂密的枝節將被剪掉;斜坡上的植物抓緊泥土,但我們無暇觀賞;屋苑內精心栽種的花草為呎價增值,可惜它們只能遠觀;公園的草地是放鬆身心的場所,縱然它不能踐踏。

 

我們有意將植物視作利己之工具,卻又無意識地享用大自然的供給,人類與植物的連繫傳承良久,而植物向來任由我們予取予求。

 

當我們的感官遺落在忙碌生存的每天,自我迷失於追尋認同之中,僅有的力氣只夠掙扎求存,遑論自省或維繫與他物之間的關係。

 

展覽中,你將與植物同處。請深吸一口氣,將植物的獨特氣味充斥在心膛,由它助你逐一接駁斷裂的聯繫,重新思考我們與自我、大自然及萬物的關係。
