Reception:

Practice of the Absence – i.l.o.v.e.y.o.u. is an audience participatory work. Patrons are encourage to explore the fragments of text in front or them.


From the Artist Nayeon Yang:

Through the piece, Practice of the Absence - i.l.o.v.e.y.o.u. I attempt to articulate personal collective memories, using the text from "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.  In the novel, the little prince begins to learn, and rewrites the meaning of his life and the meaning of the rose during his journey. Then, he dies, ending his journey and going back to his flower. Even though the little prince's experiences in the story leaves him with sadness, loneliness, regret, and death, I believe, the reader collects the eternal meaning of life and love from the ephemerality the little prince finds.  As the audience recomposes and read the fragments cut out, the meaning of my act of emptying-out '"I","L","O","V","E","Y","O","U" will be reinterpreted as a writing about love to share.
