Bio

李曉華,一九九一年出生,二零一四年畢業於浸會大學視覺藝術院。

每天被瑣碎和無厘頭的事物吸引,時而停下觀察,或舉機拍攝,然後不小心忘記原本的工作。

很喜歡看漫畫和網絡上的各種有趣圖片,十分欣賞每位作者在圖像上的思考邏輯。

現專注影像創作,亦著迷於攝影的時間性和真實性。從前覺得相片會說謊,現在認為它只是在呈現作者心中的世界。

LI Hiu-wa received his bachelor degree from the Academy of Visual Art, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014.

He is always attracted to nonsense and unimportant stuffs which he finds hilarious. He also appreciates how other people create funny memes with great sense of humour.

He focuses on photography and is interested in exploring the concept of time and reality in photography. He believes that a photographic work has the quality that reflects the photographer’s inner thoughts.

 

Artist Statement

對我來說,攝影的再現特性能借用真實世界的經驗來建構另一個世界。比起靜態影像所呈現事物的真偽,我認為觀眾從中得到的感受和想像更重要。

相片像連接現實和虛構的一扇窗,攝影以特定的角度和距離框住了觀看的風景。

編輯作品時就像在改造這扇窗。我習慣裁剪或放大影像,及嘗試各種排列方式,重新決定了這個窗的形態、大小和看到的事物。改變觀看真實世界的方法來獲得新的經驗。

The representation of photography allow us to contruct another reality from the real world. It is more important that how audiences feel and imgaine from the images.

Photography likes a window, connecting reality and imaginary. It also frames the view by specific angle and distance.

My photo editing process like transforming the window. By cropping and blowing up, or rearragnging the images, I recreate the size and form of the window, also what and how we can see through it. We also get the new experience to see a new world.
