Waiting in Vain 快闪展览

Pop-up Photo Exhibition

Artist: Kathy Hua
Date: Nov 2 - 3, 2017
Location: I: project space

This project is a series of camera obscura environmental portraits of Beijing hutong homeowners. The photographer turns the hutong rooms into the camera itself, and takes long-exposure portraits of the inhabitants.Over 60 years, socially-marginalized hutong homeowners witness the fast-changing redevelopment of new Beijing. As they wait to turn the clock back, their home is already broken. This project is about waiting, waiting spontaneously and self-willed, fatalistic and unpromising, waiting in the dim light,in the fast-changing space, and in the passing time and memories.

This is a photo exhibition and documentary lasting for 48 hours.

作品的主题关于等待。摄影师关注北京四合院房主人的边缘生活状态和社会情感,通过小孔成像的技术,将四合院落房间本身变成相机暗室。照片的所有光都来自窗口的一个小孔,每一张都是一次长时间曝光。曝光过程就是一点光源的慢慢叠加,像是窗外的,逝去的,时间,空间,记忆,都以某种方式沉淀在了照片中。

展览为纪录片放映和小孔成像摄影暗房装置展示。展览仅展出48小时。
