Doing laundry is not simply a monotonous act that is part of the daily routine, but becomes the mirror of the customs and traditions of a particular culture, must have thought this artist Ho Wing Ka Jimmi while making his photographic project Laundry Art.
Ho‘s works explore themes such as landscape architecture, society, and human behavior. Hong Kong is the fourth most populated city on the planet and that’s why it has a large number of skyscrapers, but in this case, the artist has chosen to look down.
After a few attempts, Ho focused his research on one of the most common gestures of everyday life, transforming it into a way to represent the unique Hong Kong scenario. The order, the sequence of the clothes and the great attention to detail make us perceive the presence of man, without ever revealing it completely.
