WMA continues its exploration of the biennial theme “Home” in 2024 and presents the latest commissioned project “everything is a projection” by artist Sheung Yiu. Born in Hong Kong and currently based in Finland, Yiu explores sensory memories of home through his photographic and digital imaging practice. Over the past year, Yiu has digitised 81 objects on his table, as a starting point to reconstruct his home. But can memories of home truly be replicated? The sterile spaces and pristine objects created by digital technology strip away the erosion of bacteria, the lingering scents, and even the traces of the passage of time, making it difficult to capture the various memories associated with “home”. A series of new works presents Yiu’s questioning of replication technology, as well as one’s impulse and longing to find, recreate, or replicate a “home”.
The exhibition is curated by Yeewan Koon. On January 25, there will be a curator-led tour at 5 PM, followed by an opening ceremony from 6 to 8 PM.
