《隐匿 砾石 的 诗》







“在一些时间里,我存在,在另一些时间里,我并不存在。每个被掩盖在石头中的单词被风、雨、细沙、灰尘、 时间冲刷,遮起来又忽然显现,我们无法知道已经发生了什么或将要发生什么,只有我们和我们所见之物。”

Poems by Hidden Gravel

Words, gravel, wind, rain, 2021


Qian is obsessed with objects and memories, with their indefinable wanderings state as they are melted away in memory. These French words that make up this poem are words that Han Qian sketched over and over in her books during her first year of studying French in Paris. Some of them have long been familiar, and some have been forgotten. These randomly remembered phrases make up a poem that reminds of forgotten, faded memories washed away by time.


In this temporary exterior work, the artist placed poems composed in this way outdoors, each word covered with a different stone block. After a week of natural variations, these stones reorganize the covering.


"At some moments I exist, at some moments, I do not.  Each word covered in stone is washed away by the wind, rain, fine sand, dust, time, covered up and revealed; we cannot know what has happened or what will happen, only us and what is visible."
