This autumn, 21-year-old Hong Kong artist and photographer Lean Lui will host her final exhibition, “Epoch,” at Tomorrow Maybe, Eaton HK’s independent art space, before leaving to the United Kingdom. Visit the exhibition on 12 September from 5 pm to 8 pm to catch the live presentation by the artist herself.
“Epoch” features a selection of artworks by Lui, curated to present a summary of her creations spanning both abstract and life-oriented pieces. Epoch provides the viewer with an opportunity to take in a poignant synopsis of Lui and her journey as an artist so far, prior to her departure to London, where she will pursue a Masters in Photography at the prestigious Central Saint Martins.
The sensitive, metaphoric, and dreamlike works bare the innocence of a teenager yet convey the firm emotions of a person with anguished life experiences. “Epoch” will be divided into chapters comprising surgical theatres, religion, and the much-admired women in Lui’s life. This admiration is further staged via works by Yvonne Lui, the artist’s younger sister, who has been invited to exhibit short videos which offer a glimpse into the sisters’ private lives, at the centre of Tomorrow Maybe.
