Kasper Forest. Contradictions between Hong Kongers and Chinese identities in the city, demonstrating a sense of confusion and anxiety about the future. 

Kasper Forest created the #INEVITABLE CONFLICT Project to express the dilemmas faced by modern Asian society. Born in Hong Kong in the 1980s, Kasper frequently experienced what he saw as the contradictions between Hong Kongers and Chinese identities in the city, demonstrating a sense of confusion and anxiety about the future. Kasper uses photography to record the dualities of the city, rich and poor, modernity and discrimination. He witnesses many things that are disappearing from Hong Kong society; such as culture, community, artefacts, and the less fortunate in society – which to him will inevitably be affected in the coming years due to the current political landscape. In creating this photography project, Kasper captures the key themes in the lives of expatriates, ethnic minorities, people in the bottom of the social ladder, marginalised artists, trans peoples, and travellers. Such that he can demonstrate the reality of Hong Kong to the world. 

Hong-Kong born photographer Kasper Forest, the award winner of ArtNext International Artist Gold Award 2019. Since 2016, Kasper began a documentary series named #ConflictHongKong, capturing the differing minorities living in Hong Kong. The current project #TheGhostCity which expresses a sense of anxiety and mourning of city by using cultural symbol – Paper Servants
