The Debut Solo Exhibition of Silas Fong 方琛宇首個個人展覽
Young artist Silas Fong Sum-yu is making good use of being anonymous in his everyday life to investigate the relation between people, focus on the tension between public and private. Silas Fong silently captured the aesthetics features of uncertainty and randomness in tangible places and intangible spaces. Silas Fong shows his disillusions through investigation in the form of photograph, video, installation and performance.
Anonymity: the quality or state of being unknown or unacknowledged. What is the feeling of approaching someone or being approached anonymously? Does anonymity induce curiosity or curiosity generates anonymity? Everyday when we are going to work, eating in restaurant or surfing on internet, we would come across hundreds of strangers, they are nameless, unidentified and incognito. Does that mean we have no connections with them? Anonymous feelings and relations are being generated when location and people are unidentified. The artist takes an anonymous role in the local art scene, suggesting his state of emergence and not being well-known.
