About the exhibition

The mastery of an advance linguistic skill makes human the king of the animal realm. But communication is more than just words. In our daily lives, especially at our most intimate times, we uses different non-language means to communicate our thoughts and feelings. The tiniest of body movements, may they be intentional or unintentional, can be read easily by the beholder. In fact, the ability to read all these signals are so developed such that we sometime knows more about a person more than the person itself. These vocabulary and conventions of gestures have become a language of its own transcends all cultures.

Songs without Words is an ode to these non-languages. Songs are musical pieces that use lyrics to express our feelings or to tell a story. But there is always space between these words that express more than the language itself ever could. Chinese call these spaces “Yun,” and thinks that too much words become unartful in this situation. Thus, this space is an art form by itself and become ripe for exploration by artists.

Wong Ka Ying and Nicole Wong are going to explore this space in the exhibition. Although they both like to use words in their work, their style cannot be further apart. Wong Ka Ying uses bold and colourful words to reiterate the narrative by adding yet another layer to her already complex works formed by images and objects. Nicole Wong’s tendency to use words in monochromatic colours to form different shapes to show a different perspective on the way a message is propagated. This exhibition showcases the relationship between human and its objects; utilizing different images and objects to reconstruct different limits, habits and metaphors.
