A frozen rose in a fist of ice melts slowly on to a hand-written letter. Gradually the water blurs the ink on the page. This work shows the duration of decaying, staining and blurring. This work acts as a meta-companion to the works displayed with it in my debut solo exhibition (“Nam Hae Kum San”); it reminds the audience of the fragility and temporariness of language. The use of a flower encased in ice highlights the sometimes fraught relationship between symbolism, language and community.
