Let’s Try Catching Steam with Bare Hands
11 December 2021 - 29 January 2022Free
Gallery EXIT is delighted to present ‘Let’s Try Catching Steam with Bare Hand’, an exhibition curated by Jims LAM with the new series of artworks by CHAN Wai Lap, NGAI Wing Lam, YAU Kwok Keung.
‘Let’s Try Catching Steam with Bare Hands’ features more than thirty new works by three artists. Through the use of non-human subjects such as fictional characters, mythical creations and architectural designs, NGAI Wing Lam, YAU Kwok Keung and CHAN Wai Lap, with different artistic practices, backgrounds and modes of thinking, have come together in this exhibition to demonstrate contemporary life as a “nexus” composed of various situations and systems.
As suggested by the title of this exhibition, the attempt to get hold of something as intangible as steam does not yield much success. The Encyclopaedia Britannica defines steam as an odourless and transparent gas. It only becomes visible when miniscule water droplets are formed, giving steam a white, opaque appearance. Hence the illusion that steam can be moulded and shaped into a form. By capturing and magnifying various metamorphic processes, this exhibition recognises change as an active agent that is independent. How this agent creates nuanced relationships with the present is the steam that we try to grasp.
