How Happy I Am That I Found You

Exhibiting Artists: Chang Jinchao

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 03 Mar 2011 - 13 Mar 2011

I have always been a pessimist, but I am starting to wonder - what is the meaning of being a pessimist? Does a pessimistic ideology make me become a person that I want to be? Human relationships can be complicated, even amongst family, relatives and friends. We face issues of accommodation, transport, desire, hunger and ambition. I am now facing a more complicated society than where I had come from. Familiar language and familiar faces, but some concepts are not familiar, the concept of being a man. How important is my “self”? How much fear do we experience when facing ourselves? What does the fear look like? When we focus on the fear, small things can look insurmountable. Is it the “meaning” that we seek? What should we do after the process of searching for meaning? Repeat ourselves?

There is a kind of joy called “sadness”. When you look into your deepest recesses, it is actually charming.
