agnès b. Galerie Boutique is pleased to welcome New York-based photographer, Chad Moore, to hold his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, an exhibition bidding farewell to spring and welcoming viewers to re-experience memories of youth. His gorgeous, straightforward photography will be on display from 21 April to 19 August, and those who wish to admire his works and retrace their youth are welcome to visit agnès b. Galerie Boutique Rue de Marseille, located at shop 119, K11 Shopping Mall, 18 Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Born in Florida in 1987, Chad Moore entered the world of photography in 2008 and has since captured many intrinsic moments of people and his city with his raw, unedited style of photography. His works focus on the use of high saturation and improvisation, effectively capturing body movements, expressions, light and emotions and locking those fleeting, youthful moments into his photos. Chad Moore’s works have been exhibited at the Foam Museum in Amsterdam, Stieglitz19 Gallery in Antwerp, Belgium, as well as Galerie&co119 in Paris. agnès b. first collaborated with the photographer in his “Whatever’s in me is whatever’s in you” in New York, and again in November last year with his “Too Late, So Soon” exhibit in Paris.
Chad Moore’s newest exhibition, “WILT”, will be his first time displaying his work in Hong Kong. He takes inspiration through the extension of every unforgettable moment- these moments can be the most simple and innocent things: the morning hours of a good night’s sleep, the bright interiors of a nightclub, a sweet kiss on the lips, and countless others. Through his photography, viewers can remember and re-live memories of their youth, provoking an experience similar to spiritual meditation, adding an emotional flavor to seemingly uneventful moments. His colourful works show a straightforward curiosity towards life, with staggering emotions of passion, calmness, dreaminess, strangeness, as if striking deep into your true self. Aside from exhibiting Chad Moore’s 19 new photographs with his theme of “WILT”, the venue will also sell limited edition ‘agnès b. x Chad Moore’ tote bags.
