De Lounge is pleased to present the first solo exhibition “Terminal III (三號大樓) ” by artist CHAN Wing Lam Lydia, curated by Wu Hiu Nam Kaio The exhibition will open on 1 February 2023 to 17 February 2023.
Why and how to leave the city - seem to be an inevitable question for us today. What is the item or essential that you must bring along when setting off? Artist CHAN Wing Lam Lydia is in the imagination of "Terminal III 三號客運大樓", a place full of silhouettes of the city and commends memories. CHAN uses the 'cold' material - sliver to sketch the decision of leaving. Puzzling and matching different fragments, packing the piece of going with reluctance in life as if it’s the last night of packing up.
CHAN sketched our city from a micro perspective. She "carves" the "miscellaneous" objects she sees in daily life, turning them into micro-scale metalwork, reshaping and reconsidering the relationship between the city and the artist herself. The story revolves around the empty suitcase which collects precious moments in life. When the suitcase is full, it's time to say ‘Chaos(bye-bye)', to take off and settle into a new place, "Terminal III", bringing all the memories along.
CHAN projected her thoughts on herself as well as the city to fill in her unique colour and time. CHAN realized that the experiences of the two places and the environment are not necessarily identical. But she still hopes to awaken and fill in the blanks of the city’s precious memories, and to write about the trivial notes as the gift for everyone who's on their way to "Terminal III".
