Project Description

The idea of the exhibition “Transcending the Three Hours” came from the first dialogue between Lin Lin and Irene in early 2016. Although each had lived in different countries, they discovered that they easily conversed in many common topics, even to their respective art creation processes. One particular topic is food and its relationship to life. Other topics they share are feelings about the environment, understanding of food and culture, and using multi-media and different materials in their art works.


During the following year, Lin Lin and Irene continued their conversations and exchanges, especially with regard to the feelings and thoughts of food, but always surpassing the food itself. They find that there are many interesting overlaps in their artistic creations, and these overlaps are brought together in this exhibition.


“Transcending the Three Hours” is one representation of the overlap. For Lin Lin and Irene, the three hours is the time of conversations; the three hours is the shared memory; the three hours is the basic universal viewpoint of culture. In transcending, two viewpoints often merged into one, then became two again. In this exhibition, the three-hour conversations continue.
