YY9 Gallery is pleased to present "City Memory", a joint exhibition by Vaan Ip and Leo Wong Chun-yam. In the exhibition, two local artists will present their latest series of sculpture installation which captures traces of memories of the changing urban environment in Hong Kong in a truly profound way.
In the “Lost City” 2015 series, Ip provides a brand-new perception of poetic architecture of the city with the sensitive use of light and shadow, hence inviting his audience to join a creative dialogue of illusion and reality. By infusing visual elements into his sculptures, Ip manages to depict the characteristics of a densely populated city – the very unique rhythm, structure and landscape of Hong Kong in a spiritual way, offering the audience a fresh dimension for imagination. Wong will presents two of his latest sculpture series, namely “Lost Memory” and “Memory Rebuild Space”. The former series is composed of blurred images of symbolic views in Hong Kong, by which Wong intends to explore the ever-changing urban landscape in our city; the latter series is created to capture represents some iconic buildings from his’s childhood, thus transforming both personal and collective memories he shares with his childhood friends into a three-dimensional sculpture structure.
