Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Organised by the Art Promotion Office
The exhibition features Hanison Lau and Chan Dick, two creative artists working in two different media, and follows their soulful explorations and adventures in which they look at unknown histories and cultures, or revisit snippets that are lost in memory.
Artist Hanison Lau attempts to look for the familiarity in the old items when he is on a strange land. His all-time favourite haunting ground is the flea market. He uses old furniture items in an installation to simulate the display of an antiques market. Tableaux or stories in his work would evoke memories in many of us. Modular sculptures and antiques from overseas are placed side by side to spark imagination and stir up memories. Together, they make flashes of stories of the nebulous bygones. In doing so, he gives a new twist to old things and the things that happened during his journeys.
Childhood memories are photographer Chan Dick's key to this wondrous realm. He displays a photo series taken in a deserted amusement park in central Taiwan to reminisce about his childhood at the Kai Tak Amusement Park in San Po Kong, Kowloon. Photos of the defunct amusement park document Chan's immediate moods and perspectives: the focus on the ferris wheel and merry-go-round alternates between memory and reality, creating a journey in the perspective of interwoven joy and forlornness, and bringing visitors of the exhibition back to a space lost in time.
