Getting the public involved in art can be loads of fun, according to Madeleine Marie Slavick, who staged a unique photographic exhibition at a youth centre in Kowloon. Entitled 'Together', the exhibition featured 12 images from Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Japan, the United States and Vietnam. They were arranged in six pairs and framed in deep black. The viewers were asked to write directly their reaction to the exhibits on the glass. The exhibition, organised for the sixth time by Slavick, featured photographs taken by her during the past six to seven years. Slavick said: 'I am interested in the relationships between things. In an exhibition in 1991, I combined my poetry with photographs. In 'Together', I explored the interaction between the images as well as the connection viewers made with them.' 'Most of the photographs were taken in Asia and most are religious. It is because I find that many Asian places are very spiritual. There are numerous statues and temples and many articles have religious themes.' 'Together' not only refers to the communication between the photographer and the viewers, but also explores the reactions of different communities. 'For instance, a viewer wrote: 'Seek truth!', while another reacted to this by writing, 'The truth is in the pictures!' or something like that. It was very funny,' she said. She told Young Post that the reaction of people in Singapore and Hong Kong was different. 'Generally, the Singapore audience tends to write a bit longer and read everything patiently, but in Hong Kong people merely write a few words because they are not ready to write and don't really know what to say about the photos. 'A Singaporean wrote six poems in my artwork. I was very impressed,' she added. The writing is documented and kept until the end of the exhibition. 'I find it interesting when I read it again,' she said.
