Culture Shifts: Global

7 April - 18 June 2017

Launching on April 7th, with a public viewing from 6PM on April 6th.

Culture Shifts: Global explores the city and our urban environments as seen through outsider’s eyes. Working in partnership with the University of Salford, we have commissioned Hong Kong photographers Luke Ching and Wong Wo Bik to produce work in Liverpool, bringing new visual approaches to old urban spaces. We have also sent a British Hong Kong-born photographer, Derek Man, to revisit his place of birth and photograph the city’s social housing.

This programme is exhibition is part of LOOK/17: Liverpool International Photography Festival. The theme for this year is ‘Cities of Exchange: Liverpool/Hong Kong’.

Luke Ching

Room 118, Titanic Hotel, Stanley Dock, Regent Road, Liverpool, L30AN is a series of photographs created during a 10-day residency in Liverpool in January 2017. Titanic Hotel is a renovated 200-year old warehouse, a formerly industrial space converted into somewhere that people inhabit for a short time. Ching transformed an entire newly refurbished hotel room into a pinhole camera, capturing the views of the rapidly transforming docklands from each window. Like a warehouse, a hotel is transient by nature, providing a short accommodation.

Wo Bik Wong

Wo Bik Wong is one of China’s leading female photographers. She has shown internationally at over 100 exhibitions, although less frequently in the West. Wong has produced a series of photographs taken around the Port of Liverpool building alongside interiors and buildings of Hong Kong. Composite images of old colonial buildings are made to explore continuous shifts between dereliction and redevelopment towards a new identity. Through the medium of photography, Wong continues her journey of revealing international cultural and artistic issues.

Derek Man

Derek was born in Hong Kong but has lived in London for the last 6 years. His project can be viewed from the perspective of an expatriate returning to his homeland to record how rapidly Hong Kong is changing. His work explores social housing and how families living in cramped spaces get by in Hong Kong. At once a basic human need and private imperative, the housing issue is one that affects people in Hong Kong, Liverpool and the world over.

Launching on April 7th, with a public viewing from 6PM on April 6th.
