Deferral | Echo – Kwok Tsui – 30 Sept to 21 Dec

Kwok Tsui, Note (2023). Oil on canvas.

30 September–21 December 2023

Launch: Saturday 30 September 2023, 7–9pm

Join us at CCA Derry~Londonderry for the launch of a new solo show by Kwok Tsui entitled Deferral | Echo. This is Kwok’s first solo exhibition, comprising of new painting and drawing. It centres the artist’s personal experience as an immigrant living in Northern Ireland, exploring the theme of displacement and the notion of home.

In the words of Anna Liesching, Ulster Museum curator, who has written a text to accompany the exhibition “This body of work represents the push/pull between journey and stillness in Kwok Tsui’s practice and life. […] Deferral, the feeling of missing milestones and moments, has been a constant in Kwok’s experience since he emigrated here in his early teens. The migration process, and the consequent lack of security has delayed education, professional practice, childhood and even grief.’

You can follow us for updates @CCADLD on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
