Synopsis

Image is a kind of discourse. “Blackness” ─ a feeling of mysterious suspense, hovers between the individual and the collective, between remembering and forgetting, and between the past and the present. Through the experience of companionship with her old mother, and of revisiting old haunts, the artist keenly observed changes in life and in the city, and contemplated the essence of time. Her lens gently plays over the passage of the years, leaving inadvertently irreparable lacunae in the image. Her works are truly original and unique in style, and the images charmingly captivating.

Agnes Ku is a sociologist and works in the university; she received the Postgraduate Diploma in photography in 2016. Her works have been exhibited locally and internationally, this being her first solo exhibition ever. A book carrying the same title as this exhibition, forthcoming/ released in April this year, is a cross-boundary attempt by her that traverses art photography, writing and sociology.
