What this is about

Hide-and-Seek is a traditional children’s game full of joy and fun. But in this video, an isolated female was covering her face slowly like the time when she plays Hide-and-Seek. The gloomy and oppressive atmosphere (mute) creates the feeling of nihility and insecurity. These are the representations of our responses in the postmodern era. We are now living in a world full of uncertainty and insecurity; our lives are full of multiplicities and possibilities. The individuals are isolated from the uncertain surroundings.

About the artist
LAM Wai-kit was born in Hong Kong. She lives and works in Hong Kong and Ferrara (Italy). She graduated with her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK and with her MFA at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her media of interest include photography, video art, sound and mixed media. Her research topics include the construction of identity and the questions of existence. She is concerned about the relationship between individuals and surrounding circumstances; and tries to reconstruct images and daily experiences to search for the notion and representation of identification. Since 1996, she has held solo and group exhibitions in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Italy and Canada. Her works have been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and private collections in the UK, Italy, Canada, America, Australia and Hong Kong. From 2003, Lam is one of the main collaborators of the Italian AMAE Art group.
