"...The more I try to get it right the more mixed up it gets. Sometimes I can't even remember what I was trying to say in the first place. It's like my body's split in two and one of me is chasing the other me around a big pillar. We're running circles around it. The other me has the right words, but I can never catch her..." -- Haruki Murakami

What do we talk about when we talk about communication? There is so much in life that is way too complicated to be explained in any language or means of expression. How much do we actually comprehend and understand when we read or listen; how do we perceive information from our surroundings and in return, how often can we truly express ourselves appropriately. The series of installation works falls into a realm of semiotics, encompassing common matierials and everyday objects to explore various perspectives on the way a message is propagated and received.

In the exhibition, you are invited to a communication that does not require a reply with the Hong Kong multi-disciplinary conceptual artist, Serene.

"I Want to Tell You Everything, Almost Endlessly."
