Wing Shya 'Sweet Sorrow' @ Art Central

Blue Lotus Gallery is proud to present Sweet Sorrow, Wing Shya’s photographic ode to our desolate human condition. Sweet Sorrow reads as a techni-colour love letter to the city that raised him: Hong Kong. Our city serves as a backdrop to what is really going on in the psyche of the “Me Generation” who grew up with smart phones and a heightened attention to all things visual. This epic production which came with price tag of 3 million hkd, involving a creativie team close to a 100 people, Sweet Sorrow may be the most visually gratifying work ever produced in Hong Kong to tackle a subject so intimate and personal as finding the sweet in the sorrow.

For the past 13 years Jo Farrell have been photographing some of the last remaining women with bound feet in China. She has interviewed all these women about their foot binding and their lives during the Cultural Revolution and the great famine in China. She has just published a new book illustrated with photos and stories from 50 of these women. The majority are between the ages of 80 and 100 years old and are from Shandong and Yunnan Provinces. These women come from peasant backgrounds and have lived incredible lives working in the fields despite their bound feet. Farrell's work looks beyond their feet and captures a piece of history for generations to come.
