A new commission by Kai-Oi Jay Yung. For 'Interval: A Narrative Psychosis' Yung has created a multi-channel video installation in Gallery 1 and a series of black and white photographs in the Cafe area that draws upon the recent investigative journey she undertook across Hong Kong and California. The work seeks to draw parallels between these seemingly distinct countries, cross referencing diverse aspects of Yung's experiences — from the South China seas to Palm Springs, from a Hong Kong face reader to an Alcatraz inmate. Through her editing process, Yung explores how we distill and reconfigure the information and experiences of our individual lives, inviting visitors to forge their own personal trajectories through the amassed places and voices presented. The gallery experience culminates in the performative narrative Amnesia; A Rehearsal, an unexpected restaging of 19th Century American figure Sarah Winchester and her occult fixation. Blurring reality with fiction, this exhibition reveals the psychosis that loops across time and space and permeates our daily lives.
