The Imperfect Circle
Featuring AMA, Au Hoi Lam, Vivian Poon and Tsang Chui Mei from the “Qiang” studio space, along with artists Carmen Ho and Wong Wai Yin, this show was a continuation of “The Perfect Circle” exhibition earlier this year during the Fotanian Open Studio. The exhibition revolved round the theme of reconciliation, recurrence, fulfillment and disappointment, and contemplates on other metaphorical possibilities of the circular form.
Dirty Paper: Yesterday’s
Art collective Dirty Paper draw upon their past experiences and create works that speak in the language of nostalgia, reminiscence and collective memories. The two members of the group displayed works that illustrate their individual pasts alongside their collaborative works. Lap found inspiration from his high school years; Keung suffered the loss of his beloved pet cat, and when event became worse when he lost his digital photo library, resulting in the lost of many of his cat’s picture. Keung attempted to reverse the effect of his amnesiac mishap, and in the process he questions the objectivity and validity of one’s own memories.
