The Little Things: A Pursuit of Gratitude
The Little Things is an exhibition that evokes a sense of gratification and appreciation, allowing the audience to empathize with the stories that accompany these objects.
We all use objects in our daily lives to fulfill a purpose — be it to ease our daily life or simply for its function. But how often do we look beyond its main usage and think about what it represents?
Objects, what matters, makes it different, or gives it meaning are the stories and emotions imbued into them. These stories and emotions hence construct a collection of memories that makes up life.
Under the light of these narratives, these mass-produced products acquire new meanings, inviting the audience to reflect and be grateful for the present.
