Crescent Void artist book
  • Crescent Void artist book


    The Crescent Void was first shown at Gallery Z  in 2018 as one of the satellite exhibitions of The Hong Kong International Photo Festival. 

    From the very beginning, Sharon wished to create a book, which dedicates to her beloved grandma. Before the book becomes real, The Crescent Void was shown as exhibitions twice. Finally, the little wish is fulfilled, the book is completed on the 29th Feb 2020, celebrating Grandma’s birthday in heaven.

    To materialise this ‘void' of a ‘crescent’ in a year time proved to be challenging, but ultimately rewarding. From an exhibition to an artist book, ‘The Crescent Void’ is now unfolded in a zinc box. We have the work delicately presented with washi paper—turning the heavy concrete specimens into an airy silvery beam. Gallery Z is launching this artist book with Sharon Lee to share this passion and endeavours in remembrance of things passed. Blues Wong wrote a poem responding to the work of Sharon, here is one line—A pouring rain of mental soil fill the passing memories of a distant love.

    The zinc box is meticulously tailor-made by Sharon to hold this precious book. The material echoes to the essence of the previous exhibition. Why zinc box, as lots of foreign friends asked. For locals, I guess it is well understood.

    The Crescent Void, the edition artist book comes in a box of 10 prints, extremely limited copies of 5.
