Solo Exhibition: 'City Poetry 城市詩意' by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze

“City Poetry 城市詩意“ is Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze’s most personal project to date, a photographic exercise that shows the artist further deepening his roots in Hong Kong and Cantonese culture. Jacquet-Lagrèze set himself the task of documenting visually striking street signs and took them home where his wife would help to translate, slowly enabling him to decipher the characters that adorn this city’s streets. As his archive grew so did his knowledge, forming sentences with photographs of individual characters results in poems that are both visual and linguistic.

城市詩意》是Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze 最新的個⼈企劃,今輯攝影系列印證了這位法籍攝影師對於香港及其語言⽂化的熱愛再度昇華。Jacquet-Lagrèze以攝影紀錄街上各種充滿視覺魅力的招牌,帶回家中讓太太協助翻譯,漸漸地,他學會解讀滿佈大街⼩巷的⽂字密碼。他儲下了⼤批這樣的⽂字照片,中文知識亦隨之加深。他更運用這些文字照片拼砌成富有「詩意」的句子,巧妙地集合「視覺」與「語文」於一身。

Portrait of Hong Kong by Fan Ho | Exhibition @ Blue Lotus Gallery

Exhibition Dates: 22 March - 14 April 2019,

Venue: Blue Lotus Gallery, 28 Pound Lane, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong [New Address!]

This exhibition showcases the last body of work of prominent photographer Fan Ho as embodied in the book project ‘Portrait of Hong Kong’. For this final endeavour the celebrated and much-loved photographer and film director, Fan Ho, went through his extensive archive of negatives to compile a of series of work that had not previously been published. In 2015 Fan Ho selected about 500 old negatives from his own archive which he then cropped in his signature style. After the deeply unfortunate event of his passing, it took another year for the project to be completed with the help of his family and Sarah Greene. The flow of images takes you on a journey travelling from West to East of Hong Kong Island, starting with the boat people, moving through construction and modernisation, across the harbour to Kowloon side, ending in the New Territories and the quiet waters of Hong Kong.

Keith Macgregor, The Way We Were, pop-up at Usagi

The Way We Were is a photographic journey down memory lane through the vast collection of work by the iconic Keith Macgregor that throws you back to Hong Kong during its prime: namely the 70s and 80’s.

The exhibition bursts with nostalgic street scenes steeped in colonial and local culture, city panoramas and images of life on the sea in full colour and black & white.

Importantly, this also marks the first exhibition showing a selection of Macgregor’s latest series titled ‘Neon Fantasies’; a passion project where the artist imagines a reverse reality where the city multiplies in illuminated neon signs.

The Way We Were expresses a city abound in colour, diversity and optimism, a documentation and flashback to a time where the ‘Hong Kong Dream’ was forged and people went ‘all in’ on the game of life.

'Philosopher's Tree' by Michael Kenna

Michael Kenna is one of today’s most important and influential black & white landscape photographers. This exhibition, curated by Blue Lotus Gallery, focuses on a subject most dear to Kenna: trees. Good trees grow slowly, and those with strong resilience situated in good conditions can live for thousands of years. Each tree has its own story to tell. The viewing pleasure of Kenna’s work is likewise connected to a change of pace, close focusing, and a meditation of sorts. One cannot help but wonder, if these trees could talk, what would they tell us? 

This exhibition is curated by Blue Lotus Gallery as a pop-up at Usagi gallery off Hollywood Road,
