Lumenvisum is proud to present “Accord/Discord”, the solo exhibition of Lam Wai Kit on coming January 2019, to showcase the latest artistic creation. This exhibition explores the interrelationship between images, videos, words and sounds. The four are implemented in the same space so as to understand the relationship between imagination and expectation in the environment.
Chord, which refers to the combination of 3, 7, and 9 notes, is commonly found in music. Accord and Discord work together in music and interact with each other. If they work corporately, they can produce harmonious and comfortable music. If they cannot work corporately, discord will destroy the harmony of music.
Artist Lam Wai Kit starts with the harmony and incoordination in “Accord/Discord”. Using photography to record images that are composed with different daily objects, irrelevant words or phases, sounds of air in fragment, video of slowly water movement, just like the music that composed with different chords in accord and discord form. They interact, coordinate, match, in appositeness and in conflict, to produce unique rhythm and feelings. Being in the white cube that the artist created, the harmonious feeling and atmosphere in such environment, audiences are expected to rethink their understanding of self and their interaction with the environment, what is supposed to be and not to be? In a piecemeal living environment where nothing is known, to discover the different aspects and uniqueness of the self-determined role in society.
Lam Wai Kit’s creations are between fiction and reality, sometimes fragmented, sometimes complete, can be regarded as emotional or rational. Lam not only thinking on self consciousness and emotion expression, but how do we look for the relationship between the harmony of object and object, people and people, people and thing and thing and people in our daily living environment. The interactions prove the existence.
