WORDSFORPICTURES intersects with the Lingnan Library site and collection.

The exhibition represents a culmination of a series of discrete interventions that occurred over the residency. The installation operates as a linguistic production offering oblique narratives to explore the notion of the Library as a storehouse of accumulated facts, hypotheses, conjectures and fictions.

"文字圖像" 這項裝置藝術, 結合了嶺南圖書館的埸地和藏書。展覽是藝術家在她駐校期間, 在圖書館內所作的一連串抽象的藝術介入的高潮。這項裝置啟動了語言學上非直截了當的敍述, 來探討圖書館作為存放一個事實, 理論, 推理和小說的寶庫的意圖。
