Eason Tsang Ka Wai’s solo exhibition “Powerless”- Blindspot Gallery
[Press Release]

Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present “Powerless”, the first solo exhibition of Hong Kong artist Eason Tsang Ka Wai, which features his newest works employing different media. “Powerless” spotlights the evolution of Tsang’s artistic practice from an exclusive focus on photography to his experiments with other media and subjects, and a distinct perception that subverts common perspectives on everyday existence.


Continuing on the theme of living in the city in his iconic photography series New Landmark, Tsang shifts his focus from public space in his previous works to interior or otherwise closed spaces in his latest creations. Between images from daily life and the exposed interiors, the set of light boxes in A failed light box pinpoint a breakdown of order that is illuminated. Reversed perspectives also run through the video installations from the Housework series. Where the repetitive visuals in Housework No.1, which features the projection of the autonomous movement on a mop on sand paper, delineates the physical contradictions that fill our surroundings; Housework No.3 denotes the futility of one’s mundane actions. Boring 30 seconds, a video work encapsulating the oppressive passage of time through the night, highlights the paralysis and aphasia of the individual against the tremendous social mechanisms at work.

Ambiguity underlies one’s relationship with spatiality and temporality, as captured in the video installation 52.404705, -1.497604, whose visuals of floating clouds hint at time passing that subtly negates the coordinates for the viewers. Redundant cables, a set of installations of cables that run through part of the exhibition space, creates an implicit route for the visitors as well as an explicit link between night and day in the exhibition.

Selected works from Tsang’s iconic photography series New Landmark, will also be on display. New Landmark has been most recently featured in the annual flagship exhibition at Hong Kong Arts Centre titled “Familiar Otherness: Art Across Northeast Asia”, and in “CHINA 8”, a comprehensive survey exhibition of contemporary Chinese art held in eight cities in Germany.

The artist will be present at the opening reception. Interviews are welcome and can be arranged.
