Dear Superman, 

    Hello!

    How many sneaky, dirty, sickening, sad, dreadful, and exhausting worlds, those have flashed through the superman who is still unyielding. Standing in the depth of the dead water swamp of an era that is accelerating in its declining, superman silently holds and pushes up the wild, puerile, fragile structure behind the grand words of “Culture” / “Art”, for the watch of faith and hope, for the possibility of a non-binary special experimental field, for the exciting light dimly glittering in the mud of the field. Within this light there is you, and there is me.

    Superman is but human, is father, mother, child, friend, family, and lover, is the ordinary human being consumed by the daily routines and changes, by the emotional ups and downs, whose dignity and health constantly worn out by jet-lag, unjust treatment or compromise, and exhaustion. Superman does not earn much, yet determined to possess happiness. A superman can be sometimes lost, perplexed, scared, and self-questioning silently in the depth of the night. Superman needs protection too.

    In celebration of the Lunar New Year – the Year of Pig, SLEEPCENTER has invited eleven of our beloved Supermen – professional operators of the art world, to share the blessings of the new year together with you. The Supermen are located across the world, versatilely practicing the various works across the disciplines. The one thing that they all share, is the contribution they made with their full strength, behind the scenes for the development of the art world in the Greater China region. On behalf the young posterity, SLEEPCENTER would like to show our sincere gratitude. And we hope with our endeavors by expanding our institutional competency, that we shall in the near future be starting the service to support and to protect the Supermen.

    We thank you for all your hard work and brave-hearted survival in this past year, and your constant support and encouragement toward SLEEPCENTER. We wish you and your family a peaceful, thriving, and happy new year. 

Sincerely yours,

Rui Lin, on behalf of everyone at SLEEPCENTER 

超人,你好!

        有着多少卑鄙,肮脏,令人作呕,悲伤,可怕,累人的世界,在不归服输的超人面前闪过。站在加速走向衰退的时代死水沼泽深处,超人不声不响地撑起和推动“文化”/“艺术”这宏大的字眼背后野生、稚嫩、脆弱的架构。因为要守护信念和希望,因为这可以是一片非二元性的实验田,因为田中泥里有微弱模糊却令人向往不已的光,这光里有你,有我。

        超人也是人,是爸爸,妈妈,孩子,朋友,亲人,爱人,是被柴米油盐和喜怒哀乐消耗,被时差、不公、妥协、过劳磨损着尊严和健康的普通人。超人得到的不多,却决定要很幸福。这样的超人常常会迷茫,会害怕,会在夜深人静的时候自我怀疑。超人也是需要被保护的。

        值此己亥肖猪新年,SLEEPCENTER邀请了我们最爱的十一位超人——艺术世界的职业运营者们,与您同庆这新春佳节。超人们身处世界各地,所从事的具体工作保罗万象。一致的是,她们都在幕后,为了大中华地区的艺术世界的发展贡献着自己全部的力量。SLEEPCENTER仅代表年轻的后辈们,向超人们表示诚挚的感谢。并努力在不久的将来,延展我们的机构职能,开启为超人们提供支持与保护的服务。

        感谢您在过去的一年中辛勤的工作和勇敢的生活,以及对于SLEEPCENTER长期以往的支持与鼓励。祝您及家人新年快乐,在新的一年里,身体健康,平安顺利。

后辈林锐 代表SLEEPCENTER全体成员 谨致
