Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal
Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal’s paintings revolve around finding time for stillness in a busy modern life. Ingjerd embraces the process of chance and the act of pouring paint becomes a meditative practice. Capturing moments such as her oldest child moving away from home, her work reveals the complex fact that presence and absence always means something to someone.
Ingjerd Holten Ytterdal是現居於香港的挪威藝術家，她在忙碌的生活中作出反覆的思考，借以返回原來的平靜。看著液體的流動，她猶如放下心裡的執念。看著子女的離開家園的事實，她透過種種顏色的變動，比喻自己作為母親慢慢放手的心情。
Happy Lee is a multidisciplinary artist focusing on deconstructing conceptual identity. Working in painting and sculpture, Happy believes that absorbing and digesting new things is an important life value. She examines identity by painting hair preserved in jars. As hair is DNA, it is unique and defining. Happy explores human relations by preserving history and maintaining the presence of her family.
