‘Selah’ is Hebrew and appears 70 times in the recitation of the Psalm. It carries the meaning of segmentation, transposition, acoustic intensity, interlude, and extension; as intended for the theme of the exhibition. ‘Higgaion’ also conveys the idea of meditation and silence. It appears in the performance of Psalms, which represents ‘rest’. It takes a few breaks to sing to the ‘Higgaion’ and in the mean time, the audience is silent and breathless; which is the deeper intention of this exhibition. In some of the works that emphasized the reproduction of past exhibitions, the intention was to reflect, pause for a moment, and slow down for the future. Henri Nouwen, the greatest priest of the 20th century, said, “Somewhere we know that without silence words lost their meaning, that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure.”

So are people, art and exhibition.
