30lx by Virgile Simon Bertrand


Event details: Friday 14 January 2011, 6.30pm – 9pm; 2P Contemporary Art Gallery, Shop 5, G/F, 6-20 Po Tuck Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

30 lx or ‘30 lux’ is the minimum light intensity required by the Buildings Department’s Code of Practice for the Provision of Means of Escape. Constructed using low cost materials, devoid of any ornamentation, these compulsory means of escape are perhaps the purest examples of entropic architecture. Virgile Simon Bertrand’s photographic studies draw attention to an inadvertent phenomenon, how despite the common genesis of these architectural features, each offers subtle but surprising structural variations that give rise to an elegantly minimal formal vocabulary.
