Since 2018, the artist has been unconsciously paying attention to the city of Qingyuan (literally translated as 'clear and far') in Guangdong province, whenever she returns to her hometown from Hong Kong on a high-speed train. Although she has never been to the city herself, her vague impression of the place, like many other fabricated narratives, remained deep in her memory.

Clear and Far ambiguously outlines a fictional but incredibly authentic story. In this story, the artist pieces together several threads revolving around her childhood, wandering life and female experiences, constructing a '(pseudo-)connectioin' between her and the city of Qingyuan.

From the picture of Qingyuan city found on Wikipedia, to the photo of the artist's mother in her childhood, then to the artist herself wearing false eyelashes impersonating her childhood friend: these mixed 'evidences' gradually emerges this veiled city, of which the narratives sound clear but the truth are far away.

自2018年起,每次乘坐高鐵自香港回鄉時,藝術家總會下意識地留意廣東省境內一座名叫清遠的城市。雖然她本人從未造訪此地,但她對這裏的模糊印象,如同許多編造的敍事,都深深地留在了的記憶中。

《清遠紀事》暖昧地勾勒出一個虛假卻又無比真實的故事。這個故事中,藝術家從她的記憶中拼揍編織出了幾條圍繞着童年、漂泊和女性經歷的線索,構造了她與清遠這座城市的一段「(偽)關係」。

從維基百科上找到的清遠市圖片、泛黃照片中藝術家的母親童年時的臉龐、戴着假睫毛模仿記憶中童年友人的藝術家本人——這些真假參半的「證據」讓這座朦朧的城市逐漸顯形,這裏敍事清晰,但真相離遠。
