Jimi Tsang: Temporal Boundary
Concerned with documenting post-colonial Hong Kong as it transitions to China’s ‘New Era’, this is an ongoing project, capturing everyday moments of a Hong Kong in flux.
Created over five years, since the onset of the Umbrella Movement, this collection of photographs represents Tsang’s unexpected personal mourning of the only place he has considered home.
The idea of presenting hundreds of photos in this exhibition is a meditation on excessiveness and displays Tsang’s obsession with capturing the impermanence of a city that is deteriorating. It can also be interpreted as a quandary into how he processes the encroaching absorption of his home city: the disappearing boundary between one country two systems.
Influenced by nostalgia and a desire for simplicity, Tsang has chosen to exclusively shoot with film.
