Constructing the Xiqu Centre Exhibition
Ducky started to learn photography in the 1980s. He worked as a photojournalist from the early 1990s to 2006,and was granted many photography awards. In 2005,he started to develop an interest in the visual arts and founded the Outfocus Group Workshop in 2008. In 2009,Ducky and a number of local photographers established the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association. Serving as the managing director from 2010 to 2011,he assisted in organising the first Hong Kong International Photo Festival. Ducky’s early works featured photo stories from the streets and recorded changes in society. He even spent some time in Chinese factories to observe the lives of labourers there. Ducky has published over 10 photo albums of his work. His photographs have also been displayed internationally, including in Germany, the US, Canada, Japan, Taiwan and mainland China.
To mark the completion of our first major venue and celebrate the contributions of everyone involved,we present a stunning exhibition of Xiqu Centre photographs by photographer Ducky Tse. The images document the eight-year development process – from the initial design drafts to the completed venue. On display from 30 December 2018 in the open public space of the Xiqu Centre Atrium,the exhibition reveals the beauty of the architectural structure and pays tribute to the dedication,hard work and support of the professionals who have made this project possible. The exhibition design takes inspiration from traditional and contemporary theatre spaces.
