Entering Art May, the two major art exhibitions in Hong Kong, Art Basel and Art Central, have officially kicked off, bringing together the works of international and local Hong Kong artists, bringing a lot of new perspectives to everyone. At the same time, there are many interesting exhibitions next to the Wanchai Convention and Exhibition. This time, I would like to introduce the "Shuangtong" group exhibition in Tai Kwun, Central. A total of 14 artists from all over the world were invited to display their works in the two-floor exhibition hall of Tai Kwun. From the perspective of form, space and theme, they played with "repetition" and its various variations. Makes the audience have a feeling of deja vu. From the perspectives of perception, vision and narrative, we seek out various possibilities that are different from the mainstream social model.
The exhibitions are located on the first and third floors of the museum. The team deliberately constructed a repeated setting of the space in the exact same environment. The architectural scene was inspired by the famous movie - 22nd Century Killing Network and The Shining. It has the concept of a labyrinth. The different structures, revolving around concepts such as deja vu, twins and dual vision, the artists echo each other with their works, allowing everyone to explore the relationship between "original" and "copy", creating parallax, allowing everyone to reflect on how to improve the senses in real life, etc. awareness and a new perspective on the world.
For the viewers, the repeated and dissimilar works are different from the previous experience of viewing exhibitions, which arouses us to think about consciousness and reality, and examine the relationship between past chance and the world in the subtle differences of the exhibits. If you are free this week, why don't you come to Central Tai Kwun for a space-time experience!
