All the things we see*

*All the things,
We see
Are memorized
Inside.

All the things, we do, are done,
are memorized
in time.

The body,
the soul,
energy 's coming home.

What you leave,
what you leave,
is beautiful.

All the things we see* All the things we see*

A set of vases sculpted from Ytong blocks has a variety of historical forms. Each vase contains a bouquet of paper flowers, which have been meticulously folded from the pages of Chinese soft porn magazines. Fragments of nude bodies are visible through the sharp creases and folds. Instead of sweet scents and the reproductive features of a flower, the viewer glimpses mass-produced human erotica. Each bouquet has been titled after a line from a popular song text, embodying them with an aura of concise, convenient poetic pleasure.
