CONFLUENCE: IN PURSUIT OF GOING BEYOND
THE ROMANTICIZED ENCOUNTER

The search for the meaning of an encounter will very likely be romantic. I used to wonder if it is possible to discuss an encounter by going beyond the mere romanticization thereof while preserving the emotions and beauty within. Will it be possible to perceive an encounter as beautiful if the two entities meeting each other come from different origins? If yes, how do we recognize such an encounter not as a mere celebration? It was the latter that actuated my thought to look beyond the romanticized feelings brought forward by an encounter.


To write for this exhibition, I started with finding the meaning of the word ‘Confluence’, after which this exhibition is named. This is when the thought sparked. In different online references, confluence is a term used to describe the coming together of two streams. Said definition implies that the two streams come from different upstreams, but they head to a single destination. Therefore, they finally meet somewhere.
