We name the exhibition “Flower” with no specific representation or intention, but for the subjects of these artists’ paintings are all involved with “flowers”. Some may easily feel the curating is approaching to the conception of “reappearance theory”. Frankly speaking, our original idea of curating is simple as this: we select a group of works related with flowers, without considering of whether it is “reappearancing”. The only thing comes to mind is the possibility of presenting or opening an entrance or a view to new matter. Therefore, it is not that important any more if it’s “reappearance” or not. Even though this is “reappearance”, it is not what is going to be reapearanced, but how. Yet now, flower may be flower, may be not, and “reappearance” may be what it is, or may be not. Isn't it?
