Peach Blossom Spring

Curated by Naomi Segal with Joy Li, Nolan Ho Wung Murphy, NC Qin, Marisa Suen, Zoe Wong & Connor Xia

Tao Yuanming’s ancient legend Peach Blossom Spring tells the story of a fisherman who discovers paradise: a secluded community that has existed for generations without any suffering. The fisherman leaves to spread the word to his own impoverished village, but when they return, the peach blossom spring has vanished. It is never found again.

This exhibition explores the search for an ephemeral place, particularly the intangible experiences of diasporic Chinese identity and pasts that cannot be re-lived.

Through their works, the artists archive subaltern stories – including oral histories, faraway childhood memories and under-documented experiences of self – before they become erased.
