Salvaging memories and yesterday’s fragments of a vanishing city, Lee Ka-sing’s “coda” is a symphonic poem, constructed with 227 photographs responding to Leung Ping-kwan’s “Cloud Travel” written in 1981.
Ocean Pounds is a platform for a number of art-driven projects, founded in 1995 (Hong Kong) by photo-based artists Holly Lee and Lee Ka-sing, headquartered in Toronto since 2000. Ocean Pounds is also a primo spot to acquire Holly and Ka-sing’s work - from the very recent to vintages dated back to late 70’s. Furthermore, it acts adequately as a venue to locate fine art pieces from their past organized projects (Gallery, Representation, Print Program), with work from prominent artists notably Nobuyoshi Araki, Christopher Doyle, Yau Leung and Yao Jui-chung.
