UNFOLD

Ongoing project

It is particularly common for Chinese to keep their child’s time quilt, which are usually hand made by their parents or grandparents, till adulthood.

The subjects unfold their child’s time quilt to the camera. By looking into an adult holding their childhood quilt, I aim to create a contrasting feeling between the adulthood and childhood that inspires viewers to unfold their thoughts and imagination about growing up and components of one’s personality, and initiate conversations with their past.

The size, material, pattern, personal marks, stains and traces of the quilt all represent the past of an individual. The quilt has become a natural container of memories and personal histories, that is something worth recording and preserving. Especially when we live in a world all personal traces will eventually vanish and be concealed by the “headlines”.

The project also serves me as a vehicle that takes me to the worlds and stories that I would otherwise have no access. Since 2018.

相中人展開他们儿时的被子,一件曾经用来包裹他们脆弱生命的贴身用品。籍此我希望觀眾也可以展開对成长和人格组成部分的想像和思考,並跟曾经的自己发生一次对话。

而被子的大小、材质、图案、标记和使用痕迹使它成为了一个记录个人历史的好载体,是一件值得被记录的物品,特別是當我們的个人历史痕迹总是不斷地在消失和被世界的「大事」掩盖。

项目亦是我打開和收藏世界的一種方法。通過被攝者的口述,並帶我走過他們的家鄉,更多的关于那個時代、那個地方的細節向我展开。
