Mid-Career calls for a trio group composed of an artist, a curator and a researcher to participate in the Artist Exhibition & Publication Series. In response to the shortage of mid-career retrospectives in Hong Kong and the need of documenting and researching the local art ecology, aim to initiate a long-term commitment to a series of comprehensive solo exhibitions and high-quality publications dedicated to mid-career artists.
Photography, film and video have been the chief media of Jolene’s works in the past decade. These creations relied heavily on the support and resources provided by the people and places of the residency programmes she participated in, and often had to be completed within a specific time limit. In this sense, her works can basically be seen as an intuitive response to her experiences and surroundings. Hence, journeys on the sea, Scandinavian mountains, shopping arcades in Japan can all become the subject of her works.
