Enduring Reality Part 1
Katie Ho (HK)
6 - 22 January 2017
Enduring Reality Part 1 is the first of three linked exhibitions exploring the interface between interior and exterior experience.
“The longer and more carefully we look at a funny story, the sadder it becomes.”
Humour contains happiness and sadness at the same time. Just like life. If this world seems increasingly full of disappointments and chaos, humour is vital, giving us the capacity to face our cares. So Katie Ho's work has a sense of humour not to deflect from reality but as a strategy to face it. She started this series in the sweltering heat of Hong Kong summer, 2016. Sweet treats become messy and remembered pleasures share space with an increasing sense of the world becoming a less safe place to be.
