The film shows a blindfolded woman exploring her lover's face with her hands–a gesture between intimacy and strangeness of rereading a face.


HO Sin Tung

Born 1982 in Hong Kong; lives and works in Hong Kong

Ho Sin Tung graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008. Her works are a form of story-retelling, looking for the pinpoints through navigating various existent texts. She becomes the medium herself, and distills and releases what she has absorbed, by reinterpreting these stories in her own language, while at the same time leaving her comments and discoveries in a subtle way. Her recent solo exhibitions include: “Maybe They Will Die for Us Tomorrow” (Oil Street Art Space, Hong Kong, 2017), “Surfaced” (Chambers Fine Art, New York, 2017) and “Icarus Shrugged” (Hanart TZ Gallery, Hong Kong, 2015). She has also participated in group exhibitions such as “Wan Chai Grammatica: Past, Present, Future Tense” (Hong Kong Art Centre, Hong Kong, 2018), “How To See [What Isn’t There]” (Langen Foundation, Neuss, Germany, 2018), and SeMA Biennale Mediacity Seoul 2014, “Ghosts, Spies and Grandmothers”, (Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, 2014).
