In China, the units of time are named after animals. Photographs of transport, accommodation and commerce are ripped, torn, then spliced together, eliciting the ever-changing face of Hong Kong: the cycles of time overlapping like the pictures in the collage. Come here more about Eleanor's zodiac series and creative work, her many projects, as well come to buy some of her quirky merchandise oozing HK themes.
Join us in an intimate setting to listen to his stories and learn more about her photography and process.
Max 12 pax, HK$ 100 a person, includes HK$50 voucher on any book purchase.
More information about the artist:
Eleanor McColl studied Fine Art at U.W.E Bristol, England. In 1999 she moved to Hong Kong to pursue her career as an artist and art educator.
McColl's work is rooted in her curiosity for the urban environment. Her work draws the eye to the often unnoticed details of the city. Drawn to the dramatic palate of dilapidation, refurbishment and renewal, her cityscapes explore the interface between Hong Kong's unique verticality and it's impact on its people.
“I am interested in capturing those small but arresting details which catch my eye as walk through the city. It could be a flash of colour from a dangling piece of washing, or a mop resting against a rusty peeling door."
