Ora-Ora is pleased to announce its first solo show by multi-disciplinary Hong Kong artist Sophie Cheung Hing Yee. The exhibition runs from August 24 to September 25, 2022.

 

Titled Erasing Time, Sophie Cheung investigates states of “in betweenness,” incarnating situations of permanent uncertainty, and breathing life into transience and ephemerality. In so doing, she dismantles seemingly inevitable, unmoveable forces of time and location, offering alternative perceptions of the world, and new possibilities.

 

A life-long advocate and activist for disability rights and mental health causes, Sophie Cheung’s practice undermines perceived boundaries and demarcations, empowering the inanimate or overlooked with properties of agency and self-determination.

 

In subtle allusion to the Chinese proverb of crossing the river by feeling the stones, she seeks pathways which navigate their way between past and present, between her home and other places she has lived, and between opposite viewpoints of history and current affairs. Her artworks are in a state of motion, not inhabiting either pole, merging time and place and forging new ways forward.
