Ark-Association of Macau Art (the “AAMA”) exclusively presents Art Power Jamming – Rejuvenation “Live for Death – Works by Tracy Wong”. The exhibition is sponsored by Macao Foundation, organized by Ark-Association of Macau Art and Cclovethink, supported by Café Voyage and Graceart Design Studio.
“What is the meaning of existence that we have been searching for throughout our lives? How did it appear? If life has a time limit, will the meaning of survival be different? In the busy working life, people seem to forget the meaning of their existence, leading the same lifestyle at the same time at the same stage. We all hope that we can bring good things to the world during our survival, and we need the experience to grow up during the evolution from infant to old age”, the curator said.
Live for Death is appealing for Martin Heidegger. “People should live in the world like a dying passer-by and cherish it instead of manipulating the earth. There are many choices to live, and perhaps a choice has changed the trajectory of life”. Live for Death reflects Heidegger’s evaluation of this society, “As long as a person is still alive, he will live towards the direction of death. The life of this being runs through the entire process of death, which is a form of existence that precedes death. In this process of dying, people can truly feel the strong sense of self-existence, and they are present ahead of death.”
