This exhibition is set against the backdrop of Spanish rural folk celebrations, drawing inspiration from the famous Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca's classic work "Yerma." It reinterprets the climactic scene of the Romeria pilgrimage from the novel’s conclusion. It punctuates the life journey of the Spanish people: the arrival and departure of life, and the formation and dispersal of families, all occur during this special festival. In the play, the conflict between the heroine's personal ideals and harsh reality reaches an irreparable breaking point in this scene. The joyous celebration takes a dramatic turn, shattering the fragile facade of social norms that barely maintained a semblance of peace.
