"The sunlight is like the light from the television, collective but intimate."  -Dave Chow

DAVE CHOW's subtle interventions cast daily objects in a different light, giving them a quiet voice that draws the viewer into a new context. The mindfully constructed relationship between each object and the space in which it is experienced builds a connection between the artist and viewer that is both open and intimate.


about Dave Chow

Dave CHOW Yui-wang was born in Hong Kong in 1993 and currently lives and works in Hong Kong. He graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, where he received his Bachelor Degree in 2015. He is especially interested in the physicality of things.

Audible Gallery at ESS is a 400 square foot project space focusing on intimate exhibitions that feature or are somehow driven by sound as medium, subject, or a cultural force. Exhibitions are curated by the ESS staff or by other curators and partner organizations focusing on intersections of sound, media, and culture.
