I've Already Seen
Mak Hoi Ching, Chow Yi Li
The duo exhibition "I’ve already seen" takes its name from the French term Déjà vu, which refers to the feeling of familiarity with an unfamiliar scene, as if it has been experienced before, reflecting the Mak Hoi Ching and Chow Yi Li's desired effect on the audience. The exhibition is based on the fictional character "01" and depicts a Hong Kong where social constructs have stalled, and interpersonal communication has become distant, with life feeling like a forgotten dream upon waking. Against this background, "01" creates a museum of her own, showcasing her journey in Hong Kong. Through objects, self-made works, and installation art, the exhibition presents a world that is familiar yet strange, guiding the audience to explore their meaning and value in this world, while contemplating the current state and future of society.
「已經看過了」展覽名稱源自法文 Déjà vu，指對從未看過景象有熟悉感，彷如曾經歷過般，直接地反映創作者欲帶給觀眾的感覺。
