Yau Kwok Keung

Yau Kwok Keung‘s debut exhibition “Blackout Momentum” in Hong Kong presents his extensive research on reframing mythological motifs and his unique aesthetic of chaos and balance. Drawing from his experience as a tattoo artist who sewed within human flesh, Yau presents a new series of meticulous paintings, videos, and mechanical sculptures that explore the theme of collective memory loss and societal trauma. Yau perceives amnesia as a state where one remains trapped for an extended period, with its relentless momentum frozen in darkness. Recurring motifs, including an illuminated sphere, a diving swallow and an expanding sea surface are juxtaposed to convey a sense of fragmented identities in an era of collective silence, where shared experiences are left unspoken. Whether a glimmer of hope or the last glow before destruction, Yau’s brush strokes unfold an elusive point of chaos—a paradoxical expression where the chaos depicted on the canvas becomes a two-way clue. Much like the iconic movie ”The Truman Show,“ where Truman’s routine quote carries emotional weight, serving as both a friendly greeting and an act of rebellion. It conforms to a controlled existence and yearns for authenticity at the same time —

”Good morning, and in case I don‘t see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!“

丘國強個人展覽
策展人: 林志恒

丘國強在香港的首次個展「失憶之勢」呈現了他詮釋神話性的廣泛研究以及一種他用以表達混亂與平衡的獨特美學觀。作為一名在人體皮膚上刺繡的紋身師,丘國強呈現了一系列精心繪製的畫作、視頻和機械雕塑,探索了集體失憶和社會創傷的命題。丘國強將健忘視為一種長期沉浸於其中的失重狀態,其無情的勢頭總被凝固在黑暗中。亮起的球體、俯衝的飛燕和不斷擴大的海平面等重複出現的意象被並置,傳達了在集體時代中身份被不斷碎片化,共享經歷不斷失語的感覺。不論是一縷希望之光芒或者是末日的餘暉,丘國強的筆觸展現出一個難以捉摸的混亂點—— 一種自相矛盾的表達,在其畫布上描繪的混亂成為雙向的線索。就像著名的電影《楚門的世界》中,楚門的常規問候往往帶情感的色彩,既是友善的問候,又是一種反叛的行徑。它俯首於既定的存在,同時又渴望真實性—

「早安,如果我沒有見到你,下午好,傍晚好,晚安!」
