“Good day good night,” coming from strangers, who are also fellows. It is a simple yet strong sentence, which makes me still feel warm about this city.’
A sustained occupation movement, amidst moments of violent conflicts, there were also times that were more calm and peaceful than the spectators had imagined.
Traversing through the days and nights of the two months of the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong in 2014, the photographic works of South Ho intentionally avoid scenes of howling protests; instead he reverts to the quotidian perspective of the occupier, documenting another kind of landscape which is quiet and calm. These images constitute also the artist’s own confession in regards to the movement – where passion and loss interweave into a tangled sense of paradox and futility
