“Now, Here, and Beyond” features Kitano’s latest body of photographs day lightand watching the moon conceived and executed during his one-year artist residency in USA in 2013. These works illustrate the relationships between nature, human life and universe. day light was produced on 4 x 5 negative film using day-long exposure from dawn until dusk. In watching the moon, Kitano aligned his camera lens with the moon’s trajectory to capture the motion of the moon. The highlight of the show also includes new portraits from his major and ongoing series since 1999 our face taken during the Occupy Movement, of its participants and Hong Kong policemen.

“Good Day Good Night” features a series of black and white photographs and videos capturing scenes of the Occupy Movement, and unique works combining photography and painting on the same theme. Unlike the prevalent documentary approach taken by most photographers to record the events, Ho took an indirect approach filled with symbols and metaphors to representing his personal experiences and the surrounding presences. Scenes of clashes between the police and the protesters are replaced by objects discarded on the road like barricades, umbrellas, used water bottles and tents. People appear small and insignificant against the backdrop of the city, which looks quiet and peaceful amidst undercurrents of intensity and chaos. A photography book about the project, also titled “Good Day Good Night”, will be launched at the opening reception with signing.
