Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

23 Mar 201725 Mar 2017

Art Basel and BMW unveil the culmination of an epic project by British artist Abigail Reynolds, winner of the BMW Art Journey 2016. “The Ruins of Time: Lost Libraries of the Silk Road” will comprise of a body of work completed by Reynolds in response to her findings along the Silk Road.

The project is a five-month-long exploration into the complex religious and secular narratives of Europe and Asia, for which the artist undertook extensive multi-continental travel to parts of the Silk Road by motorbike. The journey has enabled Reynolds to expand her current interests and working methods by investigating the sites of former libraries she discovered in her research, and documenting what she found at each location.
