Narrow Distances is a series of photographs made in Hong Kong as part of an ongoing investigation of home, identity and community. Tse Ka-man, a New York based photographer whose works address the LGBTQ community, has endeavored to queer the space and social landscape through placement, foregrounding and recasting the protagonists in her works. From multiple perspectives including women, immigrants and queers, Tse has recast this world out of a desire to see it being repopulated and re-imagined.
Ka-Man Tse, born in Hong Kong, is a photographer and video artist based in New York. She received an MFA from Yale University in 2009, and a BA from Bard College in 2003. Her images are informed by the points of intersection between the LGBTQ and the Asian Pacific Islander communities, and what is shared and negotiated between the two seemingly divergent worlds.
Her photography and video begin from small gestures and moments that then unfold in public and private spaces. She has exhibited internationally and nationally. She currently teaches at Yale University, where she was appointed lecturer in 2013, as well Parsons the New School of Design, since 2011. Her work is currently on view at the New York Public Library in Manhattan. Narrow Distances is Tse’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.
Narrow Distances is running until August 28th 2016 in Lumenvisium.
