About the artwork

The motif of a couple often recurs in Wu Qiong's works, and brings to mind a system of support for an individual facing an unknown future. In this piece, a couple stands together, with the man placing his hand on the woman’s shoulder. This gesture of reassurance also highlights their physical intimacy, and the comfort that they bring to each other. Regardless of future obstacles they know they have each other for support, and thus they are able to enjoy simply being here and now together.
