Saturday 17 April from 2pm to 4pm

Abridge explores how one can think about images of a past in an uncertain present. This project began as a series of encounters with people who migrated from Southern China to Hong Kong in the 1960s-2000s, building on the artist’s earlier project The Other Shore. As Tay faced the dilemma of what and how to photograph, depict or record in the present, she began to revisit the corpus of images she had made while living in Hong Kong as a professional photographer for over sixteen years from 1999.

By re-photographing and transforming parts of these images, as artefacts of a past that is present, she creates a process that parallels her initial conversations about displacements across time and space, and tangentially expresses her complex position in this indeterminate landscape. Through photography, video and audio interviews, Abridge reflects on longing, anxiety and shifting identities that navigate an entangled geography.

Exhibition dates: 17 April - 22 May 2021
