LOOK/17 - Lau Chi Chung: Lost Family
7 April- 16 December 2017

Location: Gallery 2, first floor

Lau Chi Chung's work engages with the past through fictional representation. He creates a new story from the daily life of unrelated ordinary people in Hong Kong in the format of a family album, by juxtaposing carefully selected old photographs of anonymous residents - discovered through treasure hunts in various flea markets - with new photos made by Lau in abandoned sites in Hong Kong.

Part of 'Building the Civic' exhibition at the VG&M.
