Transcendence explores memory, loss, sentimentality and vulnerability. It investigates the act of ‘moving on’ taken from Buddhist thought.
The four videos explore the four stages of grief: crying, suffering, letting go and moving on. Poon is interested in the concept of the spiritual journey - the healing process that goes beyond the experience of loss. The number four has special significance given its association in Western culture with cycles, stability and positivity. A square has four sides. There are four seasons in the annual cycle of growth. The number four is a Biblical symbol of completion.
