Constant Conjunction, rain
Lunhua Kong's projects take photography and video installation as the medium. They explore the role of photography beyond its function of record and reflect on the 'gap' between concepts and images. Lunhua Kong's works pay attention to people’s unique and hidden emotions that appear against the background of contemporary culture. Particularly, they examine the living conditions that Asian females are faced with against the cultural background of the revival of Confucian culture. The moving image ‘Constant Conjunction, Rain’ explores the behavior of ‘observing’ in the dualistic concepts. By selecting flower shadows that play important roles in the tea ceremony and many mutual elements in a rain day, it creates a dreamlike imagination space and establishes a world parallel to reality.
