City Memory

YY9 Gallery

YY9 Gallery is pleased to present "City Memory", a joint exhibition by Vaan Ip and Leo Wong Chun-yam. In the exhibition, two local artists will present their latest series of sculpture installation which captures traces of memories of the changing urban environment in Hong Kong in a truly profound way.

In the "Lost City" 2015 series, Ip provides a brand-new perception of poetic architecture of the city with the sensitive use of light and shadow, hence inviting his audience to join a creative dialogue of illusion and reality. By infusing visual elements into this cultures, Ip manages to depict the characteristics of a densely populated city - the very unique rhythm, structure and landscape of Hong Kong in a spiritual way, offering the audience a fresh dimension for imagination. Wong presents two of his latest sculpture series, namely " Lost Memory" and " Memory Rebuild Space". The former series is composed of blurred images of symbolic views in Hong Kong, by which Wong intends to explore the ever- changing urban landscape in our city; the latter series represents some iconic buildings from his childhood, thus transforming both personal and collective memories he shares with his childhood friends into a three-dimensional structure.
