Before After 以前丶以後
Everything exists in continuity. Before After 以前丶以後 by Nikki Lam is part visual memoir, part investigation of our connections to place through gestures. Through the process of collecting, learning and re-performing gestures, new meanings are added through adaptation. Like dreams of the past living through veins and imaginations, what was inherited, what was left, was muscle memories and a cluster of dislocated hopes never to be fulfilled. This is an attempt to portray the remembering of a migrated history.
