an intervention by ocean leung
28 January 2016 - 28 February 2016
Thursday - Sunday, 13:00-20:00
We’re delighted to announce the reopening of Things that can happen with an Intervention by Ocean Leung, from 28 January to 28 February.
Ocean's Intervention wraps up his two-month residency disrupting the rhythm of his shared studio space where he lives and works. Adopting Things that can happen as his residence and workshop, with found objects, he conjures architectural structures and installations that echo the city’s stratified socio-economic realities. He also conducted interviews with activists, writers and members of civil society as part of a longer research process. This continues Things' series of Experiments, inviting artists to explore, inconclusively, free from pressures from the market through an intimate engagement with the space.
Ocean Leung Yu Tung lives and works in Hong Kong. He studied fine arts in university, and is completing his master degree. His works are based on the paradoxical relationships between art and society's manipulations. He produced “The Way of Paddy” and "Open Road After Harvest", two documentary films about organic agriculture and activism in Hong Kong. He curated two projects, “Yau Ma Tei Self-Rescue Project & Demonstrative Exhibition” (Wooferten, 2012) and “P-at-Riot: June Fourth Festival for Post-80s Generation” (2009).
