In the exhibition, Bonnie and Kitty present a set of abstract prints using different linear forms and textures to express their emotions and reveal their souls in reference to the relationship between the past, present and future. In life, we can live genuinely in the present, allow our heart to remain in the past, or project into an unknown future. Through the exhibition, Bonnie and Kitty convey the invisible, immaterial, and ephemeral – yet compelling and very real feelings – to the audience with striking honesty.
Born in Macau and raised in Canada, Bonnie and Kitty completed their university education at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Alongside their individual artistic careers, the sisters have always presented their work internationally as a duo, such as a collaborative piece exhibited at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009. The success of their distinctive collaborations is based on two fundamental elements: each show displays the coherence of works solely produced by Bonnie and Kitty “as one person”, and each is a clear manifestation of female sensitivity in addressing the theme they seek to explore.
