Katie de Tilly will give a private talk and tour of Parallel Lives by Yang Zhichao and Douglas Young on Saturday 29th June at 3pm.

The exhibition Parallel Lives pairs two artists Douglas Young born in Hong kong and Yang Zhichao born in China in an amazing documentary exhibition at our brand new indoor / outdoor space.

More information:

Yang Zhichao was born in China in the year of the dragon 1964/1965 as was Hong Kong artist and designer Douglas Young who coincidentally shares the same name in Chinese: Yang Zhichao (楊志超). Parallel Lives explores a slice of history between two overlapping lives separated by a boarder of Hong Kong and China. Yang Zhichao spent four years collecting the personal notebooks of 3,000 individuals dating from 1949-1999. His series entitled, Chinese Bible covers 50 years of history within the writings of personal notebooks. Douglas Young is obsessed with Hong Kong’s recent past and collects objects from his lifetime that are now disappearing in the fast changing modernization of the city. The objects themselves are not antiques nor are valuable but they speak volumes about Hong Kong’s daily life in the past 50 years. Parallel Lives is an exhibition of collective memory by two very different artists who share a commonality of age and name as well as search yet have never met.

Saturday  June 29th 2013, 3pm (open 11 am – 5pm)
