Description

It all started with these four German words: fern, sehen, heim, weh. They somehow concluded how I have been feeling during my stay in a foreign land, especially in recent years - when pain filled almost everyone’s chest at home but the air is still nice and fresh here. The pain lying in words cannot be translated nor communicated. There’s no one to blame - It is just too far.


Each drawer contains photos I took in Europe, mainly in Germany. They all look calm and harmonic, yet they point toward some significant events that happened in Hong Kong these two years. The clues lie subtly in photos and in the German phrases I carved on the drawers' edges. When one understands the hints, one may be able to decrypt. If not, one can still enjoy the exotic European landscapes.
