葬花 Bury Flowers

 


200片上有字的花瓣,呈不規則排列。所有字取自2023年夏台灣 #metoo運動中被指控的名字。


200 petals with character in random order; all character comes from 65 names of those who have been accused under #metoo in Taiwan summer 2023.

The work responds to the dilemma of #metoo movement, raising awareness of sexual harassment/assault and how common it is while not actually naming the “suspect” until proven guilty. Its title refers to Daiyu burying the flowers (黛玉葬花) from Chinese novel Dream of the Red Chamber (紅樓夢), where fallen petals remind Daiyu of her fate so she does it to cherish them and herself as well.
