Tik Ka presents his first solo exhibition in London, titled “Smoke gets in your life”, marking 2 years since his previous exhibition. From the point of departure to the destination, he meticulously records the contrasting environments, rhythms and cultural lives, sharing his insights into changes. Echoing his exhibition in 2022, the title is inspired by the lyrics of a Cantonese classic by Anita Mui “Years flowing like water”. From the expansive clouds in the sky of the past to today’s wisps of smoke, he reflects on how to navigate through the emotions of meeting and parting.
