CHUNG Man Shan

Angela Chung’s works capture the invisible in relationships between self, family and community. Starting from intimate relationships, she traces back to invisible intention and influences from surroundings, which directly reveals one’s existence. Photograph and jewellery serve as the main tools for her to capture the invisible happenings around her, sometimes combined with editorial designs and writings. Greatly influenced by Christianity, Angela’s work is a state of self-relief, change and spiritual progress. She spends days on the same issue: starting with observation, she communicates with her surroundings and herself, at the same time recording psychological changes in response to her observations.

鍾汶珊以身邊親密的人事物作起點,探索生活中隱密的關係,並以攝影和珠寶設計作為創作媒介。她受宗教影響,作品於是成為一種精神調劑及輔導,能夠釋放心中隱密之處。她利用長期的觀察和溝通,以心理上的改變作為作品的主軸。

Fifteen years later, my mother has finally found her “dowries”.

Or perhaps, it should be seen as a “journey” from which she recalls her footsteps and witnesses our changes, which turns into a new blessing.

十五年後,母親尋回了她的「嫁妝」。

或許,它不能單單被定義為嫁妝,因它是一段歷程,一份無法被奪走的祝福。母親自身的對話紀錄了我倆的改變,成為我倆對彼此的祝福與安慰。
