Artist & Photographer Conversation Series (12) Transmigration – A Conversation Exhibition between Carol Lee Mei Kuen & Lau Chi Chung
Exploring time and story in photography, “Transmigration” by Carol Lee Mei Kuen & Lau Chi Chung
If the moment of photographing represents the death of time, where is the time located when the photograph is being seen?
This year, Lumenvisum invited Artists Carol Lee Mei Kuen & Lau Chi Chung to participate in the 12th Artist & Photographer Conversation series. They have exchanged their insight on photography from different perspectives, extended our understanding of photography. In the exhibition, Carol creates works with time and light as concepts, by using objects and images to explore the relationship between nature and history. Lau used camera as his creative tool, imagining photograph as an entrance of a different dimension, instead of an objective reality only.
Time keeps going forward, while photograph freezes a certain moment of time. How the “transmigration” exists between the conversation and creation of Lee and Lau?
