Karin Weber Gallery is excited to announce ‘A Slice of Time’, Hong Kong artist Carmen Ng’s second solo exhibition with our gallery.

Our sense of time is a subjective experience, entirely shaped by personal perception and the infinite unfolding of events. As many of us have experienced, our personal time was distorted during the Covid pandemic. Studies of this period have shown a clear disconnect between measurable, objective time and internally perceived, subjective time. In this show, Carmen Ng builds on her experience of these challenging years in her explorations of time as part of her every day. Says the artist, “I have broken up daily life into fragments. Some moments have become indefinitely obscured while others are bright but fleeting.”

The exhibition showcases Carmen Ng’s perception of time depicting it as standing still, everlasting, and ephemeral. Morning Path illustrates a quaint road situated near the artist’s residence. Each morning, as Ng sets out from home, she is greeted by a captivating pathway illuminated by the gentle interplay of sunlight and tree shadows. Afternoon Pattern captures her return home, where the sunlight filters through glass adorned with delicate watermarks, creating a mesmerizing display. These evocative scenes serve as symbolic markers, representing the start and conclusion of a day in the artist’s life.

Visitors who experience the exhibition will be moved by this mindful rendition of time, delivered in the soft-spoken manner that so closely reflects Carmen Ng’s own character.
