Para Site Art Space is pleased to present
Continuing the sonic research and exploration of the concept of seascape sinceand is the artist’s further investigation on seascape from an oil tank, the working place of his father. Turning the limitation of an exhibition space to a creative constraint, the artist compresses his auditory experiences into a flat “canvas”, in attempt to recreate the horizon that divides the water and the sky. The work consists of different sonic fragments captured during the artist’s on-going travelogue in search of his own horizon in the seascape of Hong Kong. By composing sound materials for eight horizontally aligned speakers, the artist tries to confront with visual discourse of the horizon and form his own definition and interpretation of horizon, and invites the audience to perceive the horizon through sound.
More materials are available to view on site at Para Site.
