It may look like a zoo, but it's not really a zoo...
It may look like an exhibition, but it's not really an exhibition...
Lights on, there is a room bursting with things:
Scattered things that illustrate someone's life;
Objects are real, stories and histories might not be;
Time may not be known, yet scenes are familiar;
Or they are only images derived from what you can hear;
Tour guide will show you around, and you will eventually find a perspective;
Please don't mistake it as an answer, ultimately that is not what is on offer.
You may discover something, but you will certainly forget it in the end.
Never mind, forgetful city dwellers as we all are.
Lights off, only forgotten sounds of the city are left behind in the room.
[In an exhibition space, a journey is set out for visitors to reconnect with their forgotten memories through objects.]

Cabinet of Curious Bodies — Monologues of the Room

Artists Sharing (in Cantonese)
Collecting the Collectors
Aged classics, free toys, animal news, fallen teeth...
Curious habits they may be, yet they reflect the most real humanity;
They search, they archive and they memorise;
With or without transformation, it is another kind of creation.
