Kathmandu Photo Gallery presents "Abandon/Decay", an exhibition by Canadian photo-artist and filmmaker Liam Morgan whose new series of works explore the nature of decay and the many ways we abandon things.
Based on the notion that what is abandoned will decay and what we do not feed and nurture will die _ love, hate, anger _ his works are allegorical self-portraits involving non-attachment and our selective use of abandonment as an emotional tool. How something is abandoned dictates the way it decays.
Some objects, found in a state of decay, are posed for the camera long after being discarded. Others are symbolic objects introduced into scenes of decay, purposely left behind in the hope that they will stay there.
Decayed, the objects often lose their symbolic power over those who cast them off, but not always.
Abandon/Decay will be on show at Kathmandu Photo Gallery from Friday to Feb 24. The gallery is on Pan Road, near the Indian temple on Silom Road and is open daily except Mondays from11am to 7pm. Call 02-234-6700.
