[Rabbit News] Exhibition - Visible Cocklebur

Updated: Sep 16, 2021

Visible Cocklebur is a visual journal of personal experiences. As American photographer Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” Three artists, with different backgrounds, all went behind lenses to capture scenes which reflected on things that might have bothered a lot of people among us: emotions, loneliness, upbringing, and life as a migrant.

Trivial details of our life pile up, and transcend into inspirations. Imagine life as a journey through a forest, and look back and forward at your adolescence, twenties, thirties, fifties: you get different landscapes at different stages of life. After seeing the flora and fauna that are native to a certain life stage, memories left on your mind and traces left on your body - just like cockleburs sticking on your clothes after you cross the forest of that certain period of life.*

In a world that is almost overwhelmed by the Covid pandemic, social movements, political drama and entertainment, we wanted to create a space for everyone to take a break and look into our interiors through works by three Asian artists: of Jialu Liu, Sally Shi and Soojo Lee.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Rabbit Hutch Photography and Miroir Project.

* Cocklebur is a planet that grows widely in eastern Asia. Rigid spines with hooked ends cover its seeds, which make them work like hook-and-loop fastener and easily stick to people’s clothes or fur of animals.
