‧About the exhibition‧
What does “The 5th Summer” mean? This name does not specify an exact beginning or an end. If we look back at the past five years, we can assume that the first of the five summers began in 2014. 2014 truly was an evocative year, which can also be said for 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Whereby, 2019 may be an even more evocative year than the past.
The theme of the exhibition, Summer, sounds very abstract, but the artworks within are not abstract at all. Instead, every piece of work possesses a deep, nebulous and equivocal manner. The exhibition will feature two sets of stop motion artworks, one set completed last year and the latter in this year. The artist June, WONG Siu Ling, integrates a series of sketches and collages to create her stop motion pieces, which feature images and sounds of everyday life. Yet, through the use of a monochromatic palette and a series of photomontage, June is able to reflect the sense of melancholy in everyday life.
The stop motion pieces are called “Return” (2019) and “Draw A Summer” (2018). These pieces both seem to allude to the way China has been forcefully attempting to encroach on Hong Kong in recent years. It may also allude to the helplessness that most Hong Kongers feel, when we are tortured (by those so-called Hong Kongers). The typical vibrant scenes of Hong Kong cannot be found in June’s work, but are replaced by monochrome images of dull and mundane scenes. The choice of this monochrome palette marks the ending of the five summers, and also foreshadows that the summer of 2019 will also end in desolation.
The exhibition will officially be open on 22nd June, 2019 (Saturday) and end on 15th July, 2019. The exhibition is free of charge and everyone is welcome. The artist, June, will be at the official opening ceremony, where all are welcome to attend, to meet her and to share with her your thoughts on the exhibition.
