Artist: Chan Anpel and Fung, Yee Lick Eric
Date: 23 December, 2019 - 3 January, 2020
Venue: New Asia College Ch'ien Mu Library
This exhibition presents the collaboration between Anpel Chan and Eric Fung which examines human relations in our contemporary world where human are connected by the most advanced technology under a globalised context. By juxtaposing western and eastern art media, the artists question how technology, when it goes back to its origin, assists or hampers the communication between people. While we are going into another new decade, let us rethink how human beings interact and restart from where everything begins. Part of the work are also displayed in the Greater China region during the same period, echoing the detachment yet association between the people in these four places.
