I came down to this exhibition with Wendy on Tuesday. Granting the fact that we are not a hardcore artist, the arts there was a little too much for us. We digested slowly and some are too abstract and profound for us to absorb. Well, arts takes time i guess.
I’m impressed with a poem named Heartless (about a girl who was born heartless) and a graphic of a lung of bird with a tagline: which color is your song? That was beautiful. And that was thought-provoking!
