Towards A Brighter Future Through The Valley Of Darkness 為了光明前程必須經歷的黑暗
What is the most impressive memory of your parent? Going to the playground together? The food your mother cooked? Or being beaten up by your parent? The trace of physical punishment already long faded away yet a large amount of abusing words still buried deep inside the child’s mind and become a wound that will not heal. Parent hit us in order to train us to become proper and not to do wrong things, yet this method of upbringing often lead to other side effects due to physical punishment according to psychologist. The damage on the soul might hurt more than the damage on the physical body. This installation dedicated to those who lived through the dark generation of physical punishment and finally arrived at the brighter future. This project was possible with research from the help of Against Child Abuse Ltd.
