Rita Hui, Inam Yong


Stereotypes of genders are still very common in our city of the 21st century but contemporary art would always like to remind us of our shortcomings. From October 31 to November 23, 2003, Para Site Art Space proudly present at its Sheung Wan premise the dual solo exhibitions of Rita Hui and Inam Yong whose art explores the way how we look at different genders and our relationships with others.

Rita Hui, a local video artist who has her video work screened internationally will exhibit her latest work Displacement ab-ject in form of an installation of four monitors of different sizes. Inspired by an intimate relationship with an imagined woman of water who passed away, Hui produced video images of the death of the woman and close-ups of the body to explore the meaning of memory, self, and the perception of woman images.

The Hong Kong-born but San Francisco-based Inam Yong has been working with the media of video, sculpture, and installation. His previous work has exhibited the sadness of the fall of heroism. His new work at Para Site, 23 Million Years of Foreplay, was conceived out his fascination of Kashmir Shivaism, an ancient Hindu philosophy in which the god Shiva stands beyond the limits of sex to be described He, She or It. From his idea of Shivaism, he builds a micro-cosmology out of foam-boards and masking tapes to reflect our inherent spiritual possibility.
