Grass Labyrinth

5'37'' / Color Video / 2019|


On the mountain road of Jiuhou mountain, I saw a pool of water hidden in the grass. The sound of the water was very clear. It turned out to be a water channel in the 1950s. Because no one managed it for many years, the grass submerged in the deep forest has become a snake and ant paradise. Through the weeds that block out the sun, I seem to see a small animal in a trance . or a floating baby, a baby floating along the water in the legends of all ages and all over the world.

No one could risk lending me their baby to float in the water. I think of the first Rooster I met at the entrance of the village at the foot of the mountain, and treat the rooster as a baby.

The cockerel, famous for its arrogance, is nothing like the ignorant baby. But when it stands calmly in the camouflaged nest and floats away hesitantly, I feel that it is the memory of childhood that floats away, and I see my careless era.
