Between 2018-2021, Vaevae Chan built a place to hide away. Seeking catharsis from grief and internal conflict as a result of personal and political circumstances, she decided to isolate herself in a self-made cave in a San Po Kong industrial building. The result of this period is an immersive installation and exhibition space that drew visitors into the artist’s space of inner transformation. 

This book commemorates the excavation of the Juen Juen Gung Cave and its inaugural exhibition "She Told Me to Head to the Sea". The artist looks back and analyses how bereavement is overcome, retelling her episode of PTSD in the form of a naive children's tale.

Includes: 
•⁠  ⁠Viewing link to video shown at the exhibition
•⁠  ⁠Photographs documenting the making of the Cave.
•⁠  ⁠Contributions by Nicole Martin Nepomuceno, Charles Fong, Alice dos Reis and Lily Chan.

2018-2021年間,陳飛飛為自己建造了一座避難所。受個人及政治環境影響,她決定藏身在香港新蒲崗工業大廈的一個人工洞穴中創作,從而宣洩悲傷及內心的衝突。這段時期的經驗被藝術家轉化成沉浸式的裝置作品和展覽,吸引觀眾進入促成藝術家內心轉變的空間。

本書紀念了轉轉貢洞穴的鑽挖過程,以及其首個展覽「She Told Me to Head to the Sea」。藝術家回顧並分析自己如何克服悲傷,以兒童故事的形式重新演繹自己面對創傷後壓力症的經歷。

內容包括:
•⁠ ⁠觀賞展覽中影片作品的網站連結
•⁠ 藝術家建造「洞穴」的相片紀錄
•⁠ Nicole Martin Nepomuceno、Charles Fong、Alice dos Reis及Lily Chan的文字紀錄
