Boogie Woogie Photography & PhotogStory are pleased to present “On The Road”, a group exhibition at the Loft in Wong Chuk Hang from 18 March to 29 April 2023.
Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday 18 March from 2-7pm in conjunction with #SouthSideSaturday.
At this occasion, we are excited to announce the collaboration with Kraemer Gallery, with notably on show, 18th-century antiques and artwork that provide a contrasting yet harmonious visual backdrop to the more modern photographic prints on display.
The exhibition title comes from American writer Jack Kerouac’s novel “On The Road” published in 1957. As the narrator says in the book: “Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.” The story depicts several youngsters setting out for road trips in the United States. They are immersed in an hedonistic atmosphere and pursue the freedom of life and soul while traveling across America.
The exhibition comprises fifteen Hong Kong and international photographers’ artworks about their journey, including Raymond Cauchetier and Roger Ballen’s road trip images. These pictures are reminiscent of Jack Kerouac’s novel, which demonstrates people’s lifestyles through various photographers’ perspectives.
We look forward to seeing you there.
