LENGHI   TENG

Within

In the series Within, the characters, feel breathless, overcome and senseless as a result of trying to keep up the standard of a demanding society, where the emphasis is on performance and success. While hiding by playing roles, they get drifted away from their true self.

 

What lies beneath the surface are hidden layered emotions caused by the controversy between who they really are and who they think, others think they should be. The calm atmosphere in Lenghi’s work evokes a sense of stillness and serenity, as if time stands still. A moment, to free our thoughts and to look deep inside ourselves.

 

 

The concept of this coming body of works will be centered on the Japanese philosophy Wabi Sabi. The Wabi Sabi philosophy is connected
to the Buddihist teaching of the three marks of existence 
specifically impermanence, suffering and emptiness or absence of self nature. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Within is a beginning of a journey that invites us to see the beauty in imperfection, to discover that our unique flaws also can lead us to our greatest strengths and treasures.
