Exhibition Statement of A Place in Time (2020)



A Place in Time brings together works by two Hong Kong emerging artists - Manny Yip and Kitty Kong who use the pure language of painting as a response to memory with respect to their childhood and daily observations in the city.


The exhibition explores the fictional aspect of memory embodying not only the artists’ autobiographical information, but the intimate and subliminal quality of places held by memory that gather new meanings and conflate the experiences of the past and present.


As two artists specializing in painting, Manny Yip and Kitty Kong adopt different approaches to reclaiming their places in time. Manny Yip depicts ambiguous figures in subdued tones using acrylic paint, probing into the boundary that exists between forgetting and remembering in the context of her childhood. Turning to landscapes in the city, Kitty Kong’s work rediscovers and transforms physical places into voids of imagination, interpretation and revelation. By selectively isolating objects and memories on paper, she creates a narrative connecting personal memory that unveils the everyday and overlooked.
