《Forgotten Happiness at the Corner》
Sometimes we suddenly realize there was a time we were so filled with happiness.
In my remote childhood memory
Dad would bring the whole family to see the lanterns during Chinese New Year
The red and green lanterns swaying in the wind
With its blinking yellow lights inside
Lighting up our holiday joy
Crowded people with their loud laughter
Warm up the winter coldness
Dad would hold my hand
Keep reminding me to keep up with him
I felt happy and comfortable
I thought there would never be any moment as happy as I was then.
As time goes by, we all grew up
Occupied by family and children
Keep moving forward like a revolving lantern
Those childhood happiness
Have been laid aside in the memory
When I walked on Puji Street two years ago during Chinese New Year
There were lanterns everywhere swaying on the street
They were like flowers strolling in the wind
Hanging from every tree branch
The flashing lights intertwined with the people on the street
This blinking mist reminded me of Xin Qiji’s verse
[Thousands of flowers blossomed at night
Blown down by the eastern wind like starry rain]
Childhood memory burst out in my mind
Black and Shining coincided
The sea of lanterns reflects the connection with my father
I found the tiny me warm and happy
The exhibition particularly used post-production skill to present the lantern scenario in my childhood memory.
Those clear yet blurry and imaginary yet true happy memory.
