In the midst of Iceland’s geologically active landscape, photographer Ng Hui Hsien was led to contemplate her personal relationships and her connection to the environment. The result is an exhibition and a photo book that documents a search for stillness and a particular mode of engagement with a place.

Artist statement:
The Weight of Air continues a search for quiet. While I was walking through parts of Iceland last year, estranged from family and friends on the other side of the world, geologically active landscapes revealed themselves to constitute a living, breathing ecosystem with its own set of rules. I was led to contemplate philosophical questions related to the relationship between oneself and the environments, and how one lives and loves.
Hidden emotions and thoughts surface, as one tries to be still.
