Have you ever seen the city from above? Urban traffic is floating, and they resemble winding lines crossing each other in a time-lapse still image.The only thing that is constant is change. Human beings perceive changes through the dimensions of time and space: growth rings, rock layers, meteor traces, stock market fluctuation, laborers’ migration... If a life is a line, we constantly intertwine or diverge.The works by Xiong Wei are full of such intertwine and divergence. She covers the canvas with layers of oil paint, which countless vertically-arranged lines cover the background until veiled. Through the gaps of the lines, we can still sense the depth from beneath, whose sure-footedness, stubbornness and rawness glow through the lines. The lines, straight or curvy, board or narrow, deep or shallow, intertwine or travel in parallel. Despite how they interact, the gaps among them exhibit their independence, through which the depth from beneath present themselves and come alive.The exhibition “Accompany” is not only about the relationship between self and others, but also between solitude and hilarity, repetitiveness and impermanence.One is disciplined to find a proper place defined by society. But life should also be an adventurous journey or a mysterious ladder that leads both ways. Ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus once said “the road up and the road down is one and the same.”By keeping a distance from life amid a highly-involved environment, we don't only struggle, but also become companions.
