《一分钟的光芒》-林岚个展

After doing a major solo exhibition at The Hong Kong Arts Centre and publishing a book entitled 'Away from the crowd' earlier this year, and fresh from representing HK in this year's Setouchi Triennale in Japan, Jaffa produces sculptures which mimic the world's famous gemstones, in terms of shapes, cuts, facets and colour. The sculptures are assembled using recycled materials i.e. crate wood and old furniture as this has always been Jaffa's signature.

Jaffa questions the definition of value above all else. Who has the authority to put a stamp on the value? How many of the things we treasure lasts? What Jaffa is trying to understand is universal to all human beings, yet the 'nothing-seem-to-last' attitude and 'unlimited desire' are particularly apparent in Hong Kong.
