The Last Flower by Andrew Guthrie — Hong Kong, China — 17-30 SEP, 2013
Anita Chan L.L. Gallery, Hong Kong Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong
The Last Flower is a photographic installation that includes photographs, lost and found objects, and historical artifacts. It examines how the discarded objects, and neglected spaces (the residue of our economy) present a kind of reverse aesthetic, a sense of beauty that could be categorized as perverse. This refuse, these artifacts, are things through which we consider an imagined past, a kind of nostalgia seen through the lens of fantasy.
