MeiKong / HongKong: Memories and Family

My Le Nguyen, Melodie Ng

Our body carries, like flotsam and driftwood upon the back of a slow articulating river, the memories of those who came before us. The work of photographers My Le Nguyen and Melodie Ng is in fact an act of excavation. The bullion unearthed from the family stories draining away in front of them. The exhibition MeiKong/HongKong: Memories and Family details the photographers’ excavation and carving up of their memories as a way to understanding.
