Chasing light and shadows21.5.2015

In Tsang Kin-Wah’s video works, you can always see how he intricately uses the sound, light and space to transform the atmosphere of a particular site. Use of texts is also an important element in his works. For those who are familiar with Tsang Kin-Wah will know that he is very much inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy. Walking through “Tsang Kin-Wah: The Infinite Nothing” is just like going through a mental transfiguration of a human life, it stimulates thoughts and reflections over the meanings of life. Sometimes when I’m on duty at the site and there’re no people inside, I would fall into deep contemplation, and over a period of time, I start observing certain light or shadows that the works reflected.
Leaving the contemplative site to the “real world”, I keep chasing the light and shadows.
