Tom Hsu’s first solo exhibition at Macaulay & Co. Fine Art includes photographs shot on 35-mm film of intimate moments captured between friends and acquaintances over the past three summers in Vancouver. Hsu is known for his investigation of bodies and the way they intersect and interact both with each other and the space in which they exist. His poetic images in this exhibition seek to capture the whimsy, mutual care, and curious play between him and those around him.
Hsu’s work often focuses on everyday moments and interactions, drawing attention to the overlooked and banal in a soft and lyrical manner. His work is inspired by his readings of Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida: “A labyrinthine man never seeks the truth, but only his Ariadne.” Hsu states “this fragment stuck with me and made me think about truth and photography; by building a labyrinth, maybe the truth becomes less important, but the intention and the root of it all is what matters. Perhaps that is the light we all seek…”
Please note that this exhibition is not wheelchair accessible.
