Bring Your Own Light (2019)

Curated & presented by Ying Kwok (Independent Curator)

Coordinator: Yutaka Inagawa

Installation at Shosuien banquet room: Ying Kwok, Hong Wong and Yutaka Inagawa (video projection & wooden sculpture)

‘Bring your own light’ is an art and architecture cross-learning exchange project between Hong Kong and Japan, initiated by Ying Kwok, with invitation from Yukata Inagawa of the Onomichi City University. 

 It’s an invitation to collaborate and share, along the theme of light, darkness, and the unknown. We are used to rely on our eye as the main sense on discovering everything known and unknown, with light as the essential element for us to see. What happens when the light is off? Would we stop at where we are or will we be open for further exploration?
