From 11 to 25 June, Fringe Club presents a solo exhibition by Chung Ka-chun entitled “Doubtful Memory,” featuring a series of the artist’s paintings that uses mixed painting materials to represent his confused daily cognition—the juxtaposition of the seemingly familiar and the seemingly unfamiliar.
Memory is a mixture of reality and illusion, and it is difficult to determine the authenticity of the details. From time to time, our memory will reinterpret the experienced fact unconsciously, and scenes that seem to be familiar appear repeatedly. The artworks in the exhibition represent doubtful memory, which is like the cracks, blemishes, and stains in our surroundings, the high humidity of Hong Kong, and the sticky paint. The intention is to confuse viewers’ sensory memory by imitating the texture of doubtful memory.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
