“The Shape of Time” is the debut solo exhibition by local emerging photographer Dorothy Wong, as well as the seventh edition of Lumenvisum’s “New Light – Young Talented Photographer Series”.
“Breaking free from perspective, layers of images show frames within frames. Each picture steps from one space to another, flows from landscape to image, advances to moving image, pushes further into painting, and finally lands on the pure spatiality. The exhibition is not only about the practice of viewing layered images progressively, but also an exercise to re-evaluate how time moves in a video. ”
The work captures a glimpse of reality and dissolves images into parts. Through the reconstruction process, it points to the creative imagination that does not exist in the real world. The exhibition features Wong’s photography series “Border” and her experimental video “On The Border, From The Distance”. Detached from the norm of seeing images, both works delve into the ambiguity of images, and the perception of time and space.
