The making of off-form concrete, a finish obtained as formwork is removed from concrete, is arguably regarded as a form of handicraft in an increasingly mechanized construction industry. Like Chinese ink wash paintings, the outcome is hard to control and irreversible. Quirks and abnormalities inevitably arise from the process of construction and are often seen as “defects”. This photography exhibition contemplates on the perception of such imperfections.
