Not For Sale
許多靈魂在過去的夏天消失，他們被各種方式吞噬，但仍看似毫無可疑。許多人相信這城仍舊是一片樂土，繼續如常生活，世界一切依舊。在梁慧欣的銅版畫作品中，荒誕離奇的事情接二連三地發生，人們看似幸福，畫面卻暗藏危機。理想的烏托邦只是假象，未來總是未知。梁慧欣以童話式的想像寄寓對現實的諷刺，盼望一切只是一齣有高潮起伏的電影，總會迎來快樂的結局；在完結之時，我們重新相聚起舞，不必躺在塵埃之中。 Many souls disappeared last summer. They were engulfed in seemingly unsuspicious ways. Many still believe this city is a paradise where life carries on and the world remains the same. In Chivas Leung Wai-yan’s intaglio print, bizarre events happen one after another; behind happy faces in the image is looming danger. Utopia is simply an illusion, and the future is an unknown. Leung’s imagination resembles fairy tales: it contains satirical commentary on the real world. She hopes that reality will be just like a movie with an inevitable happy ending, where we could reunite and dance in joy.
