Hidden Space is pleased to present Latency, a group exhibition featuring seven artists who examine the idea of latency in their practice. Latency - the state of existing but not yet being manifest; of lying dormant until circumstances are right for development. The artist’s studio and the art space are physically latent sites, spaces that only function when they are activated. Likewise the artwork itself is activated by the viewer. From a concealed reality, a hidden power, an unseen presence, an as yet unrealised potential, these artists explore latency in artworks ranging from video to photography, drawing, painting, and installed objects.

Adrian CORKE (AU)

"My art practice synthesises the many fragments of my memory and experience -  juxtapositions of time, culture and place. These relationships connect me to the world, help distil my thinking and provide a process for deeper inquiry.  Ultimately, they manifest in the union between the intuitive and the formal, the spiritual and the mundane. The studio is full of latent possibilities."

Acrylic on wood panel, 30 cm diameter

CHAN Man Chun (HK)

Through combined elements of harmony, rhythm, symmetry and warm light, Calling references a framework of symbols common amongst a spectrum of belief systems. The small scale of the work is inviting rather than forbidding, encouraging a sense of security and belonging.

Mark CHUNG (HK)

One of an ongoing photographic series of weathered cigarette advertisements. These are illegally painted commercial murals, hidden away in obscure corners of Hong Kong. Advertising that by design was always rarely seen is now being reclaimed by the walls.

HUNG Jin (HK)

An ongoing series that investigates the implications of daily moments through candid photography. In this juxtaposition of images, we are invited to closely examine the minutiae of our everyday experience, surroundings and relationships.

Virginia LO (HK)

Lo examines the familiar; the streets and places of ordinary neighbourhoods in Hong Kong. In the process, fragments of time and place become strange and evocative of human presence through the signs and marks left behind. There are glimpses of another Hong Kong, an imaginary, atmospheric place that co-exists in the same time and space.

Lauren REDICAN (NZ)

In this static video, two objects are held. It's impossible to be sure what these objects are, they have colour and form, they have a physicality, they exist as both objects and marks. The objects never touch. There is tension, potentiality, but for what? There is "a yet-undecided relationship, a yet-undecided use."

Moses TAN (SG)

"A melancholic imagined film still inspired by the political situation of being queer in Singapore. The constant wait: waiting for equality, waiting for change in archaic mindsets, waiting for a future."

Moses Tan
