good day good night

South Ho Siu Nam

Date: 19.9 - 14.11.2015

“good day good night” features a series of black and white photographs and videos capturing scenes of the Occupy Movement, and unique works combining photography and painting on the same theme. Unlike the prevalent documentary approach taken by most photographers to record the events, Ho took an indirect approach filled with symbols and metaphors to representing his personal experiences and the surrounding presences. Scenes of clashes between the police and the protesters are replaced by objects discarded on the road like barricades, umbrellas, used water bottles and tents. People appear small and insignificant against the backdrop of the city, which looks quiet and peaceful amidst undercurrents of intensity and chaos. A photography book about the project, also titled good day good night, will be launched at the opening reception with signing.
