Every Day

Featuring works on paper, drawing, objects and sound installation, this “Every Day” exhibition investigates everyday life through the intertwining relationship of boredom and time.

Essentially, nothing happens in the state of boredom. Influenced by her workplace experience in retail business, Tracy explores how the weariness engulfs the everyday life. The fast-paced retail environment requires a consistent agility to pursue the ever-changing ambitions. The futility of pursuing is no less significant than the fate of Sisyphus.

As per Heidegger’s suggestion, profound boredom empowers an individual to radically face the inner self and search the meaning of being. In the course of time, boredom varies and is clouded between confronting and adapting to the futility. By exploiting the sum of several bodies of work, the artist attempts to realize herself by the way she lives or does not live at all, awake instead of shaking off the different intensity of emptiness to explore the existential question about the innate desire of reason.

展覽“Every Day”以紙本作品、繪畫、物件和聲音裝置為特色,通過無聊乏味和時間的交織關係來探討日常生活。

無聊在本質上其實甚麼也沒有發生。受自身在零售行業的工作經驗影響,林頌文探討困乏的思緒如何吞噬日常生活。在節奏快速變更的零售環境中,需要始終如一的敏銳反應以追求不斷變化的雄心志向。這追求的徒勞並不亞於西西弗斯(Sisyphus)的命運。

但如海德格(Heidegger)所提,最深刻的無聊卻使人能夠從根本上面對自我並探索存在的意義。無聊困倦隨著時間的推移而變化,並在面對和適應徒勞之間變得模糊不清。透過組織整合展出作品的關係,藝術家試圖通過她的生活方式,或者她根本從不活著的方式梳理自我意識,喚醒而非擺脫深刻不一的虛無心理,以探索關於與生俱來對存在問題的渴望。
