Clare Goodwin, Cecilia Heisser


Para Site Art Space is pleased to present the Hong Kong public with solo exhibitions from European artists Clare Goodwin and Cecilia Heisser in September.

British artist Clare Goodwin, creates large cardboard sculptures with reference to the avant-garde TV installations of celebrated Korean artist Nam June Paik, regarded as the father of video art. A homage to Paik as a forerunner, Goodwin’s humourous application of carton boxes as disposable televisions parodies an era of mass media in which the (instant) medium is the (instant) message.

In contrast with Goodwin’s humourous approach, Cecilia Heisser hailing from Stockholm Sweden, investigates time, memory and death. Her latest project has been in development since 1993 and draws on the last years of the life of her grandfather, Wolfram Heisser, during World War II. Through her text, photographs, and video not only can one experience the personal history of a man, but one can also sense how grand a history may be constructed even by narratives that are perhaps distorted.

Clare Goodwin’s exhibition is supported by the British Council.
