Exhibition: City Poetry

Event introduction 

City Poetry 城市詩意 is Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze’s most personal project to date, a photographic exercise that shows the artist further deepening his roots in Hong Kong and Cantonese culture. Jacquet-Lagrèze set himself the task of documenting visually striking street signs which he took home where his wife would help to translate, slowly enabling him to decipher the characters that adorn this city's streets. As his archive grew so did his knowledge, forming sentences with photographs of individual characters results in poems that are both visual and linguistic.

The exhibition will feature about 30 works including some pieces from his previous projects, Wild Concrete, Concrete Stories and Blue Moment. There will be an Artist Talk and other events surround the exhibition and his books will be available during the exhibition.
