Chong Ng & Lam Pok Yin
The Untimely Apparatus of Two Amateur Photographers
This project is an immediate response to the contemporary condition where the prevalence of digital cameras have made photography more affordable and seemingly democratic than ever: an attempt to deconstruct and rethink photography through looking at apparatus, methodologies and the image-making process. Through staged performances which involve cameras, optical devices and installations created by the artists, norms and presupposed ideas surrounding photography are taken to the extreme, until they start to fall apart. Obsolete technologies and everyday objects are reinvented, adapted and radicalised.
