Through the Lens | Artist Talk with Jo Farrell @ Blue Lotus Gallery

Spend an afternoon at Blue Lotus Gallery with photographer and cultural anthropologist Jo Farrell.

Jo will show her latest documentary work on womens traditions and cultures in Asia and will discuss the aesthetics of beauty in our modern day society. Learn the stories behind the Chin and Kayan tribes centuries old traditions of modifying the body for beauty and marriage. Follow in her footsteps and learn what it takes to go into rural areas, staying on the floor of villages huts, travelling by boat, train, and motorbike to capture some of the last remaining women who followed their tribes customs.

親臨Blue Lotus Gallery與攝影師及文化人類學家Jo Farrell一起度過愉快的下午。

Jo將展示她最新關於亞洲女性傳統及文化的紀錄片,並將會一同探討當下現代社會中的女性美學。 這部新紀錄片涵蓋關於Chin和Kayan部落背後的故事,以及數世紀以來部落女性為了美感和婚姻而修改身體的傳統。 一起來跟隨Jo的步伐,了解需要甚麼條件才可進入這些農村地區,去住在村莊小屋的地板上;跟她一起乘船、火車和電單車開展旅程,去捕捉這些絕無僅有仍然跟隨其部落習俗的女性。

For the past 13 years Jo Farrell have been photographing some of the last remaining women with bound feet in China. She has interviewed all these women about their foot binding and their lives during the Cultural Revolution and the great famine in China. She has just published a new book illustrated with photos and stories from 50 of these women. The majority are between the ages of 80 and 100 years old and are from Shandong and Yunnan Provinces. These women come from peasant backgrounds and have lived incredible lives working in the fields despite their bound feet. Farrell's work looks beyond their feet and captures a piece of history for generations to come.

Please note there is a HK $20 Admission Fee
