Behind The Curtain

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. … Mystery is nothing. It’s unknowable…” - René Magritte.

Once mystery induces curiosity, curiosity pushes us to discover more about the hidden story. Therefore what lies behind the curtain is all about human curiosity, which is always attributed to one’s psychological condition. Yu Pui Shan, a graduate of the Hong Kong Art School’s Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) programme (majoring in Painting) would like to respond to the audience’s curiosity through the curtain— the motif of her paintings in her solo exhibition. Will this new motif, would it give more imagery space to the viewers? Or will it limit the hints to solving the mystery? Probably it is the core of the exhibition.

「我們看見的所有事物都另藏別的東西…我們常想看到背後隱藏著的…神秘是虛無, 是不明的…」-雷內•馬格利特
