Choi Tsz Kiu explores the possibilities of construct her observations towards the world via moving images and audio recording. Numerous perspectives and responses have been produced due to diverse understandings of the surroundings among different people. In Choi’s belief, human behaviours look normal and simultaneously absurd; the present looks not only realistic but also dreamy. She considers this fragmentary way of thinking as the core of her art practice.
To present this contrasting approach on observation, moving images and sound recordings have become her major expressive interests areas to work on. When she frames landscapes, she has already shown her unique perspective to the audience through lenses. Moreover, she usually makes use of montage and sound recording to defamiliarize time sequences and our understandings of what we normally see. She is examining the method of recording fragments of minimal details in daily life in order to depict absurdity.
Inspired by the framed perspectives of lenses and observations on daily details, the matters of time, ridiculous human behaviours and dreamy reality often appear in her artistic practice together with the explorations of minimal elements of landscapes, projections and lights.
Ching Bo Leung
Ching Bo Leung is an experimental video on reconstructing sounds in the kitchen and the read-aloud recipe with related moving images. Ching Bo Leung is a kind of traditional Chinese soap in Canton. I associate sounds of making Ching Bo Leung with songs and musical instruments. By deconstructing and reversing some of the tracks, the languages were distorted.
A new song was composed.
It is a recreated music video of a song Girl and the Sea by Hong Kong Indie singer Reonda. The work illustrated the feelings of being isolated and dreamy by reforming waves of the sea in different angles, exposure and rhythm.
It is time for us to experience the loop of wandering on emotions.
