Wong Wo Bik: Memory and Fiction

11 Jan - 4 Feb 2012

Venue: Blindspot Gallery (Central)

“Memory and Fiction” features Wong Wo Bik, one of Hong Kong’s most accomplished photographers, as well as one of a small number of female photographers active in the territory. The retrospective exhibition will showcase selected works of Wong dated from the 1980s, including photographs of Hong Kong historical and notable landmarks, such as Lai Yuen Amusement Park and the Eu family mansions that were now demolished, and the Main Building of the University of Hong Kong. Wong’s photographs of these architectures are not merely documentary of history; they are also the artist’s subjective narrative of her personal experiences at these sites, as well as depiction of traces left behind by others.
