Artist Talk by Tse Ka-Man
In conversation with collaborators Carman Fung and Leon Yee
Saturday, 12 January at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Terrible Baby Music Room, 4F, Eaton HK, 380 Nathan Road, Jordan
Tse Ka-Man aims to establish a sense of possibility in the context of a contingent, post-colonial, pre-2047 Hong Kong in constant flux and transition. In “narrow distances”, Ka-Man questions home, identity, community, and subject-hood: What does it mean to look, who has the right to look, what does it mean to be seen? The photographs address a desire to negotiate multiple and diasporic identities and are made within the intersection of Asian Pacific Islander (API) and LGBTQ communities, through a queer lens.
Eaton HK is pleased to present an artist talk by Tse Ka-Man, in conversation with collaborators Carman Fung and Leon Yee.
The talk will be conducted in English. After the talk, there will be a book signing with the artist.
