Opening Reception | Isthmuses

RSVP here

Please join us for photographer Tom Hsu’s solo exhibition Isthmuses as it makes its debut at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden’s Hall of One Hundred Rivers Exhibition Space. Isthmuses, is part of the Capture Photo Festival and runs from April 13th to August 7th.

The exhibition opening will take place on Thursday, April 13th, from 5 pm – 8 pm.

Isthmuses, a narrow strip of land that connects two larger landmasses, the isthmus is a place and a non-place that is ever-changing, much like the location of this garden, connecting different parts of the city. Hsu presents images made from visits to their homeland in Taiwan. Photography also acts as a type of isthmus weaving together events and memory, exploring geographical, ideological, sociological, political, and philosophical spaces. Hsu visits Taiwan seeking the familiar and unfamiliar; what was once home becomes memories that reactivate in the body as time passes.

Tom Hsu is a visual artist whose work seeks to investigate the curious condition of spaces, and their correlation to the bodies that attend them. He comes from a base in analog photography, and this stability allows him to extend into made, found, and choreographic sculpture, all of which deal with the everyday mundane. He currently lives and works in unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories in Vancouver and holds a BFA in Photography from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. He undertook a residency at Burrard Arts Foundation Spring 2018. He has exhibited at Libby Leshgold Gallery, Centre A, Macaulay Fine Art, Gallery TPW, Yactac Gallery, Unit/Pitt, and Index Gallery
