每個人都有不為別人所理解的經歷,這些經歷如山一樣重,或許是害怕或許是無力,我們都無法跨過。經年累月的,有時我們是如此的堅定,把這一座高山壓在肩膀上,一直背負著它遊走在生活中。

是次作品透過聖經節錄1和作家的引文2回應如高山一樣的壓在背部無法忘記的個人經歷。透過物件的展示,直觀事物的本質,讓參與者和藝術工作者一起重新審視和反思自身的經驗。

一系列六件的陶泥作品,混合不同的物料,以裝置形式展出。

以陶泥塑造出不同形態並帶著人類身體結構特徵陶器,在燒製成陶瓷之先的不同階段的特性去比喻每個生命的不同階段;器物內盛載著不同的物件如植物,水或廢木等。以陶器比喻人|身體,器物內盛載的物件比喻人的內在精神|信仰。
