“A foreign country with an unknown language to the young, and even to the middle-aged.”— May Sarton

Hey, go ahead and speak, and I shall be your quiet audience in the back. There's no rush; take your time; we still have plenty left. I'll remember every syllable you utter and repeat every phrase you craft. I'll follow you at your pace and caress each sentence that escapes your lips.

Repeating messages not only helps engrain certain information into memory, but also creates a sense of warmth and acceptance for both parties through retelling. In the process of repetition, people inevitably listen patiently, understand, respect, and reflect. As moments pass by, time writes poems that are unique to each and every individual, waiting to be discovered and savored. The poems are perhaps indescribable, or perhaps are a mix of various emotions, but they are all worth preserving in the depths of the heart.

In 2025, Taiwan will enter a "super-aged society". Aging is an inevitable process for everyone. However, affecting how the public treats senior citizens and views the concept of aging, the fear and rejection of "aging" permeate our daily lives, making it difficult for older individuals to form a positive self-image. In this project, four artists from different ages and backgrounds attempt to gently present a poetic language that is both unfamiliar and sincere. They transform their experiences or research observations into their creations, reconstructing their understanding of and communication with themselves, their families, or their surroundings. Ultimately, this allows audiences at different life stages to discover their comfortable perspectives through which they contemplate the idea of aging, the people and experiences involved in aging, and even the definitions and expressions of getting older.

Through artists' delicate observations and reflections, this exhibition aims to encourage the audiences to imagine the potential facets of aging in individuals, families, and society from different perspectives, thus breaking down stereotypes, fostering cross-generational empathy and understanding, or guiding the audiences to engage in dialogues with their future selves. By doing so, the reverberations of repeated messages can settle and echo throughout time.
