"City Mapping: Rough Cuts - Photo-collage by Hong Kong Artist LEUNG Chi-wo"
2003-02-01 until 2003-03-29
LEE, Ka-sing Gallery
Tononto, ON, CA Canada

Leung Chi-wo is one of the most important artists to have emerged since the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997. He was chosen to represent Hong Kong in the Venice Biennale in 2001. His work has been exhibited in different cities including Hong Kong, Vancouver, New York, Oslo, Venice, Hamburg, Shanghai, Graz and Melbourne.

The series City Mapping: Rough Cuts was a work accomplished in New York City in 1999. In this work, using the pinhole camera, Leung Chi-wo selected certain locations and shot towards the sky from ground level. It is not the landmarks nor architecture that interest him. It is the sky, that "negative" or "void" space which is to become the centre of his work. He would shoot the sky from different corners of the streets and later cut out the skies from the contours of surrounding buildings. Different pieces of "skyscapes" were then reassembled into a fan-like 2-D photo sculpture.
