CONFESSION IN WATER EXHIBITION LAUNCH by DIO LAU
Lau’s collaborative video project, 体[Tai²] (Body), co-directed with Ka Wah Liu and Ken Ngan was screened for the first time at the exhibition launch. The short film portrays a narcissistic man who is struggling in a tangle of clay-like material. The intense film is a comment on body modification. The exhibition also displayed a slideshow of a man dressing himself, documenting the process of a body dressing in its own shadow.
Before pursuing his studies in London, Lau worked for more than five years in Hong Kong as an art director and graphic designer, creating album covers, books, and posters for various theatres, concerts and exhibitions. Lau’s work has been featured in the upcoming Visual Magazine found by James R. Henderson as well as various digital magazines such as EMBROSYST (#9) and Bestia Mag (#12).
