"This is my last exhibition before I leave Hong Kong to study in the UK. Therefore, I selected a variety of works to make a summary. Some are more life-oriented and some are more abstract. I always believe that the works reflect what I usually think, see, what kind of person I am, and this exhibition describes me from the shallower to the deeper, from life to personal thoughts to personal feelings."
Lean’s photographs bare the innocence of a teenager but the distance and awareness of someone with far more lived years. One is drawn into the childlike world created by the artist, a world soft to the touch and tender, balanced with curiosity and honesty that embraces and upholds the spaces, objects and people she captures. While her works are polished, and the worlds inhabited seem pristine, Lean’s subjects are not immune to emotional and physical pain. What she shows is the resilience they embody as life gently leaves its imprints.
While the white filter and framing of her photos can be easily misinterpreted as ‘soft’, Lean’s images turn vulnerabilities and softness into resistance, commanding both the camera lens and the viewer. She conveys her profound admiration for girls and women, especially the one’s closest to her, her family members and best friends, through image-making. The changing elasticity of the skin, the wetness of wounds and orifices, the directness of the model’s gaze, and their ownership of the photographer’s gaze, are the very expressions of their great inner strength and inherent wisdom despite their years.
-- 雷安喬 Lean
雷安喬（Lean）的攝影作品在少年天真的同時展現了屬於一個世故靈魂的距離感及細膩觀察。觀眾會不自覺地被拉進藝術家所創造如童夢般的世界中：一個柔軟而溫柔的世界。Lean 以好奇心與坦白的凝視平衡和支撐著她創造出來的溫柔宇宙，並緊緊擁抱她所捕捉的空間、人和物。雖然Lean 的凝視溫柔得近乎浪漫，而作品中的人們也似乎居住在潔淨無瑕的精緻世界裏，但她作品中的主角並不能倖免於情感和身體上的痛苦。當生活慢慢地在肉身留下印記，Lean 以鏡頭紀錄這些人物所展現的韌性。
雖然 Lean 對於濾鏡的運用以及獨特的構圖令不少人錯誤地把她定義為傾向「柔軟」的風格，但她對於鏡頭與觀者的目光的掌握其實非常精確，並在作品中將脆弱和柔軟轉化為抵抗。通過攝影，Lean表達了她對與女孩和女性—尤其是最親近的人、她的家人和密友— 的深邃感情。皮膚彈性的變化、身上傷口與眼鼻口耳的濕度、模特兒直視鏡頭的眼神，以及她們對攝影師目光的掌控，在在展示了超越了年少輕狂的強大內在力量與智慧。
This exhibition is presented in partnership with Women's Festival.
是次展覽由Eaton HK與Women’s Festival Hong Kong 聯合策劃。
Lean Lui, 21, an artist, photographer from Hong Kong. Going to study a Photo MA in Central Saint Martins, she sees photography as a way to build her own Utopia. Her works are iconic for their subtle philosophical influence and the strong contrast between the appearance and the content. Her works look sensitive, metaphoric, and dreamy but the emotions inside are strong and firm.
Lean is active in both the art and fashion field, in 2018 her work was exhibited at the Hong Kong International Photography Festival and galleries in Tokyo and Russia. Her first photo book <19.29> was exhibited in Beijing Three-shadow Photography Award Exhibition (she was the youngest participant they’ve had). In the fashion field, she was the guest of DIOR TALKS, she has shot for Dior Magazine, VOGUE Italia, Figaro HK, and VICE Magazine.
