YOU LEAVE, I STAY BEHIND
Two channel HD video installation.
17 November 2012 - 10 February 2013
In his first solo exhibition You leave, I stay behind, Chow creates a dual-channel video installation. The work features two opposing window views: one capturing the snow-clad southern alps and the other a fireworks display exploding over a cityscape. Through subtle manipulation and being captured at twilight, the juxtaposing footage suggests a sense of liminality together with a metaphysical emphasis on notions of presence and absence.
