「若夢 HONG KONG DÉJÀ VU: when reality feels unreal」的展覽信息：
DÉJÀ VU 是⼀種至今仍未被醫學所理解的⽣理現象，但⼤多數⼈特別是在年青時都有經歷過。它是指⼈在現實中第⼀次經歷某場景時，卻有種曾經經歷過或是曾經夢⾒過的奇妙感覺。這⼀刻，⼈每每會對眼前的現實，甚至時間的流向，產⽣混亂，亦即是有“現實變得不真實”的感覺。藝術家就是要透過他這⼀系列在⾹港拍攝的多重曝光作品，帶⼤家經歷⼀次HONG KONG DÉJÀ VU，從⽽對⼤家所習慣的⾹港⽇常來⼀次反思。

“HONG KONG DÉJÀ VU: when reality feels unreal” Exhibition Concept:
DÉJÀ VU is a physiological phenomenon that still bemuses modern science, but one that most of us have probably experienced especially in our youth. It refers to that peculiar feeling of already having experienced or dreamt of one’s surroundings, albeit they have not indeed. This feeling brings into question the nature of reality and even the flow of time, as if the reality ceases to be real. Through his multiple exposure works shot in Hong Kong, the photographer seeks to evoke a HONG KONG DÉJÀ VU for his audience, inspiring reflection on the city life we have come to normalize.
Instead of steering our attention to select subjects, as does conventional street photography, this series reproduces the photographer’s purposely undirected observation of the city. This method decomposes the city into abstract visual elements, such as form, nature, texture, the contrast between old and new, direction, and relation. And so inspires closer inspection of the whole we have come to accept as reality. The photographer also compresses time in his works through multiple exposures, compressing seconds and years into a single frame. The recombination of these elements born this series. Looking at Cheung’s dreamlike creations, we are disposed to contemplate which is more intriguing, the surreal photos combined of the mixed elements or the actual intricate Hong Kong we too used to seeing?
