Trevor Yeung: The Sunset of Last Summer – Blindspot Gallery

The impetus for Trevor Yeung’s work often stems from his inner conflicts. “The Sunset of Last Summer” opens with his memory of a past love affair. Continuing on his use of plants and horticulture, aquatic life, photography and installation as metaphors for the relationship between people in his artistic creation, Yeung also constructs a mode of narration oriented around viewing experiences through the hidden and interactive relationship between image, object, space and the viewer. The exhibition presents a kind of human inertia steeped in nostalgia and selective memory. Memories are always beautiful ── in watching the sunrise and sunset, in viewing art, is one seeking some kind of pre-determined memory and imagination, or the experience of viewing?
