19-4-2011 The Works: Wet Plate Photography of Gavin Au

Gavin Au is a Hong Kong-based artist. In his first solo exhibition “Still sitting on the wall” he’s reflecting on recent events in mainland China and Hong Kong.He sees the exhibition as, in part, a dialogue with a series of photographs by Chinese photographer Weng Fen ten years ago. In his photos Weng was reflecting the state of change in China since it opened its doors to greater capitalism. All of the photos in Gavin’s exhibition were made using the 19th century “wet plate collodion process”, invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer.
