The Weight of Context – Works by Leong Fei In
At first glance, her works all appear neat and well-organised. To attentive eyes, however, the personal artistic touch she blends in her creations becomes discernible – the drops, the fold of the paper and the cuts together constitute an organic texture. In recent years, Fei In has begun to reflect on the relationship between ‘newspaper’, a kind of mass media, which in the artist’s words, ‘the newspaper is the fold of the society’. In this exhibition, the artist is exhibiting her latest artwork includes installations, paper sculptures, printmaking and book works. Fei In removes all visual and textual contents from newspapers, or makes paper balls from the cut outs of the original newspapers. By doing so, she has turned newspaper, the two-dimensional form of media, into a new ‘language’ to communicate with the audience.
