BeLonging is the one thing we all have in common. The desire and need to BeLong is in each one of us. Jennifer Tan's BeLonging series evokes that need as we sense the serenity that captures the tranquility of our hearts when we have finally found that place. As we are drawn in by the distinct style using minimalist and thoughtfully presented techniques, the land, sea and sky are shown using powerful pastel colours.
Yet do we BeLong or are we merely longing to BeLong?
The reflective layer at the bottom of each piece shows how we need to stop and listen to the beat of our inner heart. Are we really at peace with where we are? Are we really at peace with who we are? The tension between the need to BeLong and reconciling it with our wider world is subtly captured in the series.
We see the ideal. We are inspired by it. But are we living it?

Light of Love
AI Gallery displayed 63 artworks related to the theme of "Light of Love" from 52 artists currently living in Hong Kong from 12 countries and areas. In the process of calling for artists we require all artists to focus on the warmth and strength of love. We aim to create a healing power that not only visually impacts the viewer, but warms and heals their heart inside. The subjects, styles, and mediums of artworks on our final list are quite diverse because we want to pass on the message that “Light of love” is supposed to shine everywhere, including places we are not familiar with.
Location: Exhibition Gallery 2, Hong Kong Central Library
