126 is delighted to present new work OVERLAND | THE ONGOING by Tim Acheson (Ireland) and Winnie Pun (Hong Kong).
Tim Acheson's new work deals with the duality of a sense of perspective. Although we observe our surrounding landscape we are simultaneously in a landscape of memory and outside references. The work looks at the simultaneous nature of seeing and memory, perspective and location.
Tim Acheson is a visual artist based in Galway City. His practice, consisting of object making, video and field recording, deals with the human aspect and reaction to the physical landscape. He is currently a member of Engage Studios.
Winnie Pun's work encourages active looking. Seeing is always in motion within each image, and each image portrays a mechanism of seeing that can be continued in other work, and in other mediums. It is not her intention to create photographic paintings or photographic images that resemble paintings as such. The banality of subject matter is non-narrative, but has the intention to slow down viewer’s perception. The indirectness induces an ambiguous moment where the mechanism of seeing and the nature of representation can be confronted.
Winnie received her Bachelor of Fine Art Degree from GMIT in 2011. Her work has been selected for various exhibitions including RDS Student Awards (2010), Eigse Carlow Arts Festival (2012) and Osage Gallery, Hong Kong (2013). She is currently based in Hong Kong.
