    "That so-called 'past' in our memories, was an era of red idealism, it is actually not that far away at all from our lives today. The 'Red Five Star' is the icon representing red China, and is still inextricably intermingled with our 'today'," writes Zhu Yiyong.

    "'The Memories of China Series' is filled with my striving for the spirit of care in humanity. Through the innocent eyes of the children, I want to link yesterday, today and tomorrow, and to find a new way to interpret our past, present, ideology and reality."

    Zhu Yiyong in Memories of China: Artworks by Zhu Yiyong, Schoeni Art Gallery Ltd., Hong Kong, 2001, p.9

    「記憶中的『過去』,那是一個紅色理想化的年代,離我們今天現實生活並不遙遠,『紅五星』是紅色中國的標誌,它與我們的今天依然有著難以割捨的聯繫。〈童年的記憶〉這批作品力求洋溢著人性的關懷,我的想法是通過兒童純真的眼光,將昨天、今天、明天聯繫在一起,力求尋找過去與當今、理想與現實的全新解讀方式,以一種充滿童趣的翻線遊戲來詮釋人們對生存狀態的關注,對現實的反思,我認為〈童年的記憶〉是我個體生命中又一深刻的體驗和思考。」
