Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders
M+ and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) co-present an exhibition that renews and responds to Hong Kong’s presence at the 58th Venice Biennale, in 2019.
The exhibition in Hong Kong includes new configurations of Shirley Tse’s site-responsive installations.
Using sculpture as a mode of multidimensional thinking, the artist emphasises negotiation as a fundamental component of living in contemporary societies. The ever-changing social and material landscape of Hong Kong is an enduring source of inspiration for Tse, and the exhibition, curated by guest curator Christina Li, foregrounds the city’s dynamic relationships and unique conditions of negotiation.
‘I am very grateful for the opportunity to present this work in Hong Kong. Situating the installations in a new context allows for new connections and new conversations between the site and the audience. I hope viewers will be inspired to see negotiation, play, and agency in a new light, and curious about various possibilities in our contemporary moment, both in Hong Kong and far beyond.’ says the artist.
