Exhibition Dates 展覽日期: 23.1-12.43.2020
Tomorrow Maybe很榮幸地能為大家帶來勞麗麗最新個人展覽展覽《保持緘默》， 帶來她近兩年流動影像及裝置作品，呈現其難以言喻對植物依存的關係。最新作品包括個人私密地下電視台－《漫慢電視 III ：保持緘默 》，繼續為患有分神症觀眾服務，提供消磨時光的節目，思緒隨著植物埋在泥土的根部被抓起來，任細碎的砂石安然地散落四周，冷靜地揭示抑壓已久、卻又蠢蠢欲動的慾望與執念。' - 勞麗麗
The wilderness is gently cultivated and turned into a not very orderly farmland.
The planted fruits and vegetables have been silent. I know that the blossoming ones have jumped onto trucks and upon stoves to sacrifice spectacularly; is this murder, or manslaughter? I can't tell. So I take the chance to tell you in some other people’s words:
A one-sided relationship is developing quite well between you and me.
I know what a leaf, petal, kernel, cone, and stem are,
and I know what happens to you in April and December.
Though my curiosity is unrequited,
I gladly stoop for some of you,
and for others I crane my neck.
Wisława Szymborska, The Silence of Plants, trans. Joanna Trzeciak
Click, click, click. This is said to be the sound of rupture in the root cell walls.
You can actually hear the whispers just by pressing your ear to the ground.
Regarding the plants that remain silent, the artist has moved from curiosity and puzzlement to a calm aphasia.
Tomorrow Maybe is proud to present Lo Lai Lai Natalie's latest solo exhibition “Give no words but mum,” featuring her moving image and installation works of the past two years that portray her inexplicably dependent relationship with plants. The most recent works include a personal private underground TV station “Slow-so TV: Give no words but mum” that continues to serve distracted audiences and provides them with programs to pass the time. Thoughts, uprooted together with the plants from the earth, the fine debris serenely scattered about, calmly reveal long-suppressed desires and obsessions.
1983 年生於香港，2006 年於中文大學學士文學畢業 (主修藝術,副修日本研究)，2017 年畢業於中文大學藝術碩士。她是一位「退役」旅遊記者，現專注於大自然生態有關的藝術創作。麗麗現時在香港生活館學習務農之餘並探索「半農半X」生活方式，這種生活實踐促使她對另類生活模式、以及作為一位香港人兼藝術創作者的自主性作出提問。她成立了漫慢電視項目,主要研究課題跟食物、農耕、蘊釀、慢駛、監視、冥想等相關。作品以流動影像、攝影、裝置及混合媒介為主。作品獲 The Sigg Collection 收藏。
