Solo Exhibitions 

Boredom, 625 Sutter Gallery, San Francisco, 2018

“Photographic series Boredom presents daily life images. Kai uses photography as a tool for entertainment. He takes mundane and overlooked moments of daily life as its subject --molding fruit, dead flowers, buttered toast...--to experiment with diverse photographic techniques. But whatever scene the photographer documents, the photograph still displays the boredom of life. In the end, even the photographic act becomes a part of the boredom.”
