2018.4.11-4.22 「非洲故事 African Tales | 明蓮花個展」

▲ 展覽簡介

很多年前,在阿根廷,一個非裔阿根廷媽媽常常給我講跟非洲有關的故事。這些故事給我留下一個深刻的印象。“非洲故事”將展出那些故事的人物。而且我用展覽的方式來向媽媽表示衷心的感謝。

“African Tales” is an exhibition that celebrates the stories that a wonderful Afro-Argentine woman used to tell me when I was little. Stories that nursed me with color and diversity and that made a huge impact in my life.

 

 

「女士跳舞的地方,就會開出茂盛的花朵。」

有一天,盜賊們來到村落,慌亂的居民們四處逃竄,哭泣與吶喊聲令人心碎。

女士於是開始跳起舞,跳啊跳啊,植物們像在回應居民的請求般急速生長。纏住盜賊的小腿、延伸,最後那凶惡的眼神終被淹沒在綠葉底下。
