Intro
The exhibition presents a study of snow: it’s transitory, loose, powdery, wraps objects in its embrace and is filled with human imprints. The artist brings snow-covered objects, in case forgetfulness of the snowy and slushy scene emerges when the spring comes.

The exhibition presents a study of snow: it’s transitory, loose, powdery, wraps objects in its embrace and is filled with human imprints. I moved from the warm tropics to the snowy north where it snows for half a year. Before moving, I had countless imaginations about snow: I thought the texture of snow was as fluffy as feather or marshmallow until I found my car buried in a pile of solid snow. When the winter arrived, my skin forgot about the humid heatwave of summer; when the winter left, I could barely remember the sharpness of the wind blowing on my face. I kept recalling those massive plants in tropical Asia during the last long winter, attempting to remember the heat of my hometown in a hot bath. Part of my tropical nostalgia is also represented in the exhibition: sugar cane and bamboo. I embraced the present moment by creating an abstract replica of snow-covered objects, in case forgetfulness of the snowy and slushy scene emerges when the spring comes.
