“Flower Show” by Paul Yeung 14 March﹣14 April 2012
Opening Reception: Tuesday 13 Match 2012, 6:30pm to 8:30pm (Artist will be present.)
Venue: Blindspot Gallery
Address: 24-26A, Aberdeen Street, Central
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 11:00am to 7:00pm (Closed on public holidays)
Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present Flower Show by award winning Hong Kong photojournalist turned artist, Paul Yeung. The series captures the outfits and activities of visitors at the Hong Kong Flower Show, bringing out the humour of collective behaviour while making ridicule of the cliche of salon photography.
The majority of visitors at the Flower Show participate in photographing or being photographed with flowers as backdrops. It is their intention to capture a "beautiful moment", in thus creating their own highly posed salon photograph. Yeung initially started this series in an approach for documentation, however in the process of making, the series evolved to become a style closer to tableau/staged photography. Each image is an implied narrative, where the subject's identity is hidden with her head and partial body cropped out of the frame. The narratives unfold through different layers, as backdrops of the flower show intersect with colourful, splendored appearances of the subjects whose emotions remain enigmas to the audience.
Prominently emphasizing the sarcastic humour on salon photography as imitation of painting that takes photography to a backward direction, Yeung presents the pictures in traditional Chinese scroll mounting with his hand written calligraphy of classical Chinese poetry about the wilting of flower. From the poetry, Buring the Flower from classical Chinese novel, Dream of the Red Chamber, Yeung finds a conversation and contrast between the poem and his images, which echoes one's sense of melancholy without introspection.
This is Yeung's first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.
