for all the things we wanted to be

June 2022

Ever since I was little, my best friend and I would meet at the swings between our houses to catch up, confess and connect. We continued doing so in our teenage years, it was a hang-out spot, a place just for us. The swing embodies a place of peace and quiet to talk, relax, unwind, and reflect; isn’t this the kind of thing an art space should have?

To me, the swing represents an in-between space: between sky and ground, between being attached and detached. It is not a very permanent space, but the activity of swinging feels timeless. Ultimately, the swing is not an object, nor a space but it creates a space. Swinging is not a moment, but it creates one.
