Adjacency, Series Two
written by Gary Michael Dault
based on photogaph by Lee Ka-sing

I am driftwood
unsupported by cradling

Seven Duets a Week

Lee Ka-sing began his diptych project in 2014. Over the years, more than a thousand diptychs were created. He describes the project as spontaneously as brush strokes on the pages of a sketchbook, or, a poem written daily. He calls these juxtaposition diptychs DUETS.

SEVEN DUETS A WEEK, is a weekly compiled inbox publication, with selection from his new and earlier diptychs. These diptych photographs, are also available as open editions in the format of 6.25 x 13 inches each.
