Please join the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA) and Opera Gallery for the Artist Talk with Kasper Forest on Saturday, the 11th of January.
The HKAGA is delighted to co-present with Opera Gallery Hong Kong “In Dialogue with Creatives – Embracing Conflicts and Minorities in Photography” a series of talks to gather insight into Hong Kong’s local talents. In this fourth edition we invite Hong-Kong born photographer Kasper Forest, the award winner of ArtNext International Artist Gold Award 2019.
Kasper Forest aspires to expose the pre-existed oxymorons in Hong Kong as the subject of his artistic creation, keeping within conjunction of his concept attributed to capturing the antithesis of the city. His artistic trajectory utilises black and white photography to contrast between the polarising social tiers and the bright lights of the city, unmasking cultural taboos and the lives of those who defy societal standards to stay true to their own identity.
The diversity in Hong Kong constitutes as the stem of Forest’s work. On 11 January, you are invited to join us for a talk followed by a Q & A session as we explore how Forest manoeuvres through the streets of Hong Kong and captures the lives of minorities in the city.
