Lay on the bed with her 

與她一起躺下

 

Through some ambiguous words and actions in front of the camera, she tempts to have an intimate relationship with you

鏡頭前,曖昧的言語和行為盼望著與看者發生關係

 

Seemingly absurd and decadent attitude deduces the emptiness of soul and a kind of contradictory sense of isolated longing

看似荒唐、頹廢的態度,演繹的是心靈的空虛和一種渴望卻隔離的矛盾異樣感 

 

These nonsense monologues resonate with the worn down flesh and soul, wasted youth and the of feeling of lost in this generation

這些不著邊際的獨白,呈現了肉體與心靈的無盡消耗、青春的浪擲以及生於這時代感受到的喪失感

 

Doubting the value and significance of own existence

Forming resistance to the reality

對自己存在的價值和意義產生懷疑

對現實記憶的低沉反抗

 

If life knocks you down, then just stay lying down

流光容易把人拋,茫然也是生命的一種必然
