Being with Water

July 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - August 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Being with Water By Ng Hui Hsien

11 Jul – 6 Aug 2023
Lower Gallery, Objectifs
Free admission

Being with Water is a photographic work that explores the interconnectedness between our interior worlds and the elemental. It features unique silver gelatin prints suggestive of landscapes, dusk, and dawn, visually alluding to renewal and transformation, beginnings and endings, hope and loss – universal experiences as we navigate life.

To create these prints, the artist bypasses the camera and works directly and primarily with water, light, and photographic materials. For her, this hands-on analogue process is her attempt to better understand – and learn from – the characteristics of natural elements, especially water. In a way hence, Being with Water also invites us to see ourselves and draw lessons from the natural world around us.

About the artist

Ng Hui Hsien uses photography as a medium to explore themes such as (im)materiality and interconnectivity. She seeks to create work that holds the possibility of connection and clarity. Or a quiet counterbalance against dominating logics of instrumental rationality, incessant productivity, and linear, clockwork time.

In recent years, Hui Hsien has been concerned with depicting nature and interior states through alternative processes. Her work has been internationally exhibited in institutions, including Reykjavík Museum of Photography (Iceland). She graduated from the University of West of England (UWE) with a MA in Photography (Distinction).
