A subtle tone pervades the space. The essence of a past temporality, a flutter of the senses, a trigger of distant memory. Dulcet yet melancholic, ‘Elegy’, Su-Mei Tse’s first solo show in Hong Kong, sets a pensive pace, a rhythm that invites self- reflection as well as a heightened awareness of one’s surroundings. Acting as punctuations throughout the gallery, the works behold an impact that extends beyond their visual properties; it is about their lasting impression, the reflection they heighten when seen, the experience sensed. ‘Elegy’ as an exhibition is an open score, presenting a set of triggers whilst inviting each viewer’s personal interpretation and impression.
