An evolving, accumulative exhibition is unfolding from 5 May to 5 December over different episodes, with more than 20 newly commissioned works from an intergenerational, international, and cosmopolitan group of artists.
Spanning 8 months over several episodes on site and online, this brand new exhibition titled Trust & Confusion invites viewers to observe how things emerge in relation to each other—sounds, gestures, smells, identities—and to be a part of it.
As the name suggests, the exhibition is about the conversation of certainty and chance. A white cube space will be transformed into a fluctuating environment that hosts activities and sensations, with several visible performances taking place as you arrive, and a number of invisible ones for you to explore.
As you move along, you may be caught by the sounds of birds and humans conversing, two or three life retrospectives of previously unpublished photographic works, a short splash of dance, or a posture reminiscent of a public sculpture in Hong Kong.
Sound-wise, guests can hear a sound sculpture morphing into a theatre prop, a molecule striking a new olfactory possibility, an open rehearsal in public, and foam mattresses transmitting the sound of one’s favourite radio.
The exhibition space is devised in the day and night section, with a brief sunset room in between. Whereas artworks would grow and evolve in the day room, a solo or duo presentation would debut in the night room for each episode
