The Breath of Excessive Reality duo exhibition (2017)

Hong Kong Koo Ming Kon Gallery

Chan Stacey Lok Heng and Tom Chung Man


The exhibition reveals the daily neglected self-conditions through everyday objects. People have no choice but to walk the same route everyday: wake up, take a bus, work, eat, then sleep. We hide our emotions to reach the stage of numbness, in order to get through the repetitive days that we had long been bored. But in the moment of respite, we perceive the alienation between normality and true self, with a understanding that the pace of future will have to be the same. We breathe in the air of excessive reality, experiencing the powerlessness of self existence. The exhibition conducts a withdrawal from the reality to illustrate the disguised emotions of one self, with reviews on the self-existence through the breath of the exhibition.
