“Diogenes’ Jar” refers to the story of the Greek
philosopher Diogenes who is also known as Diogenes the Cynic:
Philip II of Macedon was marching on the town
had thrown all Corinth into a bustle; one was furbishing his arms, another
wheeling stones, a third patching the wall, a fourth strengthening a
battlement, every one making himself useful somehow or other. Diogenes having
nothing to do – of course no one thought of giving him a job – was moved by the
sight to gather up his philosopher's cloak and begin rolling his tub
energetically up and down the Craneum; an acquaintance asked for the reason,
and got the explanation: "I do not want to be thought the only idler in
such a busy multitude; I am rolling my tub to be like the rest."
In the second half of 2019,
perhaps the artist like many other Hongkongers did not want to be the “only
idler in such a busy multitude” in a however helplessness atmosphere. Especially
for artists, the ultimate question of what is art and what is the purpose of
art in such social and political condition is always challenging their mind.
