Enjoy VR art experiences from HK gallery
Tai Kwun Contemporary in Hong Kong is presenting a 360-degree VR gallery for two exhibitions currently running at its physical gallery in which visitors can navigate an in-depth cultural tour across Asia.
A collaboration with the National Museum of Art, Osaka, and Singapore Art Museum, "They Do Not Understand Each Other" is a group exhibition of contemporary art focusing on the issue of cultural exchange and "(mis)communication".
It features a diverse range of artworks such as video, paintings, textiles, performances and photography, with artists hailing from Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Puerto Rico and beyond, each bringing a unique perspective on representation and cultural exchange.
Meanwhile, "My Body Holds Its Shape" is an intriguing contemporary art exhibition that looks at how existing limits and constraints can emerge as artistic materials and clues for associations with processes that embrace poetics and improvisations.
Inherited by the stories of the space, a former printing facility and women's prison, the five participating artists --from Hong Kong, Georgia, America, the Philippines and Thailand -- have tried to break free of the shackle of abuse with the presentation of site-specific artworks.
