Current Exhibition

Invisible Border of Memories

16 Jan - 20 Feb, 2021 | Art Project Gallery | Wong Chuk Hang | Hong Kong

Art Projects Gallery proudly presents works by Hong Kong artists Wong Sze Wai and Bethany Wong Ka Yi. The duo exhibition, titled “Invisible Border of Memories” reexamines the idea of “that has been” in the medium of painting, with a contemplative poetic approach.

Wong Sze Wai’s artistic practice addresses the themes of ruined land, to express the state between mortality and the diminishing lease of life. The ancient palimpsests’ paint and smear process initiates Sze Wai’s painting approach. The mottled texture in her painting expresses the elapse in time and the artist’s imagination. Exploring ruined land is part of Sze Wai’s practise, her artwork mostly depicting the subject matter of the ruined land in Hong Kong. She reexamines the idea of time and spaces, in the context of the subject with its adjacent objects, while questioning the realness of memories.

Bethany Wong Ka Yi discusses the incidents surrounding herself in a poetic manner. Depicting common daily objects like the kapok trees, plants and also the Lu-Ting Series, she metaphorized stories with different organic subject matters. The elements she depicted are selected from her methodologically collected archive of daily objects. In the Lu-Ting Series, Bethany investigates the Lu-Ting myth, which is allegorically regarded as the origin of Hong Kong People, and as metaphors to the social state in recent Hong Kong.

The duo exhibition will be held at Art Projects Gallery from 16 Jan – 20 Feb 2021.
