Larry Yung – The Visit

Amelia Johnson Contemporary is delighted to announce Larry Yung’s fifth solo exhibition in Hong Kong. For the past four years, Yung has been researching and applying the art of filmmaking to create an installation project that incorporates film, painting and audio elements. In “The Visit", Yung continues to examine Chinese-Western culture and its impact on contemporary lives with a deeply personal survey of particular moments from the past. Many of the images are taken from old photographs found in albums belonging to the artist’s father.

Yung uses painting to examine the lives and unravel the stories of his family members and create narratives for the unknown faces found in the photos. Using painting, mixed media and accessible consumer sound and video devices, the artist manipulates the context of the photographs to create entirely new, thought-provoking narratives. Presented alongside the works on canvas are two short films. The first film, “4:15”, explores the notion of dreams by combining music and edited footage from found home movies. The artist’s titular film, “The Visit” is the culmination of four years of personal reflection. It is an intensely personal documentary piece examining the past relationship of the artist’s parents and the impact of their separation.

關於【紳揆】

「藝隨心至,心至藝成」一向是我們對藝術的看法及心得,藝術本身應當没有形式上的限制,只要用心感受,藝術其實存在於我們生活上每一個細節,藝術本身也應當不受天資所限,只要用心創造,每一個人其實都能造出值得欣賞的藝術品。藝術之所以能修心養性,便是這個道理,亦可說得上是每一個人文社會上最佳的教化工具之一。在此理念上,【紳揆】以網上形式出現並成為一個以藝術文化為主題的平台,希望藉以推廣藝術及多建立一個渠道讓有興趣人士發表其藝術作品。

取名「紳揆」,就是希望此平台能藉著藝術分享讓每個讀者培養出溫文爾雅的態度及性情,而”Magaristo”則是”magazine” 與”aristocrat”的合併字而已。
