Inaugurating the M+ Pavilion, “Nothing” is a multimedia video installation by Tsang Kin-Wah that will expand on “The Infinite Nothing”, the artist’s solo presentation representing Hong Kong at the 56th Venice Biennale. Echoing the earlier work, Tsang combines metaphors and allegories drawn from philosophy, literature, and religion, alongside cinematic, musical, and other popular culture references, to construct an intellectual and immersive experience. The new commission continues his exploration of the significance of life, while retaining an awareness of the potential futility of such effort. A form of awakening and a re-examination of the concept of existence, “Nothing” suggests that life may well be an endless journey of epiphany, betrayal, and emancipation of the self.
