Speech on Gifts
A Retrospective of Gifts Received from 2011 - 2014

Unlike the sale of a commodity, the giving of a gift tends to establish a relationship between the parties involved. It becomes a connecting point between two (or more) - “you, and me”.

Susi Law have been receiving more than a hundred gifts (& self-proclaimed gifts) from 2011 - 2014 since she moved away from her hometown from Hong Kong to different cities in Europe. Gift-making, gift-wrapping and gift-giving has been her utmost interest and passion since she was a kid.

In the exhibition “Birds Never Want to Wake You Up”, she audited all the gifts located in her room in Bergen as a self-portrait, also as a landscape that's created from her surroundings.

Exhibition at Gallery Split, Bergen from 20/6/2014 - 27/6/2014, speech on 26/6/2014
