South Ho Siu Nam, ‘Open Door II’, 2014, Blindspot Gallery

Open Door (2014) is a series of black and white photographs of scenes of the Occupy Movement surrounding the Hong Kong Government Headquarters, which is famous for its architectural design of joining the two wings of the buildings at the upper level, creating the visual metaphor of an opening door at the space below. In the image, the “open door” becomes a blackout. The effect is achieved by the artist cutting out directly on the negative film.
