CHOI Tsz Kiu

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.

蔡芷荍以錄像與聲音探索她對日常的觀察。不同人對事物的理解造就多元的視角、不盡相同的行為,形成世界的運作。「現實時真時幻,人的行為既正常又荒誕」,這種片段式的思考方法成為了她的創作核心。

她以影像與聲音為基礎,觀者透過作品能了解她獨有的視角。影像和聲音的拼湊讓她表達出生活、時間與人之間模糊的界線,她借記錄生活的碎片來探討當中微妙的荒誕。

受到日常啟發,微小的風景、投影與光都會是她表現這些題材的發展方向。

Ching Bo Leung

2018

Video

2 minutes 49 seconds

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.
