can we please last forever?

600*600*240cm, wax, stainless steel, electric heat, 2024 (in collaboration with Cartier)

What if one day, your persistence, your dreams, and your wealth, leave you? Where is the boundary between human relationships? Does forever last exist? Made with natural materials, jujuwang’s installation is in an ever-changing form of state, due to its interaction with audiences. Here, the question of “forever” answers itself as the wax letters melt. The work adopts a philosophical angle and prompts audiences to ponder the tangled relationships between fantasy and reality, consumption and perseverance, and control and ego. In a conversation with oneself, ask: can we last forever, in a relationship? In life? In the universe?
