Looking for something to do this weekend Hong Kongers and visitors to the territory? How about tapping in to your spiritual side through Art while still experiencing the infamous crowded scenes of Mong Kong? Up your alley? Then check out the ongoing photo exhibition by Ho Siu-Kee!
The photography and sculpture exhibition by Ho Siu-Kee is called “Heavenly Mundanity”. The showcased works are from his previously developed “Aureola Series” – a photographic series in which he’s seen interacting with steel sculptures. Ho uses his own body to express communication between the ‘self’ and the ‘others’. This exhibition will showcase two series of photography and one sculpture. There are various backdrops set up, from rural to urban areas, just like in his last “Aureola Series”. You’ll be able to enjoy a different experience and perception of this series of artwork!
Hong Kong artist, Ho Siu-Kee obtained his BA degree in Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1989 and earned his Doctor of Fine Arts degree from Australia in 2003. Ho has participated in exhibitions worldwide including the 23rd International Biennial of Sao Paulo and the 49th Venice Biennial.
An interesting contrast of nature and the urban city environment is captured through Ho’s corporal expression, performance, and photography. We implore you to visit this exhibition yourself to see thes unusual photographs and sculptures at lumenvisum.
