To promote art and introduce young artists to the public, Hong Kong Art School in collaboration with Youth Square is co-presenting the Artwork Display Scheme “The Art Journey”, which showcases a series of exhibitions including the upcoming solo exhibition “Parallel Space” by Kong Chun Nga, to be held from August to October 2016;
The artist of this exhibition is focusing on the representation of an array of incidents and memories that influenced her throughout her life. As Bachelard wrote in The Poetics of Space, “the diversity of the images is unified in the depths of ‘inner space’”, she aims to illustrate her “inner space” in a tangible yet invisible vacuum, which depicts the juxtaposition between physical and psychological space exist within us.
Composition and the use of colour are fundamentals in her work. Through the placement of different subjects, or objects, they interact with each other and possess the idea of narrative disclosure, which reveals her memories, emotions and desires in a poetic manner. While the compositions are deliberately arranged, they are actually realistic depictions of our daily lives in the urban city – mundane, artificial, alienated – her paintings are always mirrors of our everyday experience, sometimes personal but universal.
Ultimately, she hopes to record, transform and play with the parallel spaces in her entire life.
