Gallery Exit, 3/F, 25 Hing Wo Street, Tin Wan, Aberdeen, Hong Kong
Artworks featured in First, then and after are each, registered by various artists, an interpretation about the concept of time and space in response to one image – a knot. The curatorial direction designed for this exhibition invites new perspective. It engenders an alternative communication beyond language through one single image of a knot in simple composition. On the quotidian level, the use of knots is much embedded in the deep of our everyday experience that the act of knotting – the sequence and movements - has mostly escaped consciousness and attention. Almost an indefinite, open-ended symbol given by the curator, the ten artists respond to the image of knot with their own works.
Artists: CHING Chin Wai, KONG Chun Hei, Sarah LAI, Lewis LAU, LAW Man Lok, Gabriel LEUNG, Otto LI, Annie WAN, Cam WONG and Morgan WONG.
Curator: KWOK Ying
