"In this exhibition, personal photographs of the artist, taken from youth to adulthood, are juxtaposed with notes on historical events to form parallel timelines. In a chronological sequence of 51 letter-sized photographs, the artist traces his evolution from a youth in Hong Kong to a middle-aged man in Vancouver, with each page representing one year in his life. Through the interplay of photography and text, A Brief History of Me explores the implicit and mutual influence between the private/ personal and the public/political spheres, and between individual and collective memory."  - Paul Petro Contemporary Art
