A page from a tear-off calendar tells a story of love between an illiterate woman and her 19-year-old granddaughter. This tiny, tattered piece of paper marks not only the birthday of her granddaughter but her unspoken love for her grandchild, even after her passing.
After life has come to an end, will love be forgotten over time?
Time, the most ancient measurement for love.
As the sayings go…
Time will tell…
Time will heal…
Time will prove everything…
Time seems to be the most faithful witness.
But what if love is not overseen by the goddess of time? Will all the past relationships, all the sweets and the bitters and the unspoken feelings pass into oblivion? Can the undiscovered and the unspoken love ever be proven?
Textiles capture blossoms that never wither and warmth that never fades. Thread by thread, stories of promises, encounters, and separations are knitted into worn fabrics, fading patterns and sun-bleached yarns.
They are the keeper of memories.
They are the witness of love.
A tranquil gallery, seven sets of artwear, seven stories of unobserved love await your visit.
