Liminal Encounters, Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s first outdoor augmented reality exhibition, explores how technology integrates the virtual world with our real life.Three artists, Carla Chan, Peter Nelson and Trevor Yeung were commissioned to create site-specific works for the project. This program brings them together for a behind-the-scenes conversation with curator Joyce Wong, exploring the inspirations and challenges in bringing together art and technology.
Carla Chan was born 1989 in Guangdong, China. She is a Hong Kong contemporary artist based in Berlin. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. Working with a variety of media including video, installation, photography and interactive media, she considers media art as a medium with infinite possibilities for artistic expressions. Chan’s creations often toy with the blurred boundaries between reality and illusion, figure and abstraction. Her works focus on the theme of ambiguity in nature, bridging natural transformation and unpredictable computer algorithms.
Peter Nelson (b.1984) is a visual artist who works between painting, animation and digital media. Across these disciplines, he is engaged in a prolonged consideration of the history of landscape images, how they are remediated by technological shifts, and how these shifts absorb and reflect changes in our relationships with the physical environment. He has been working between Australia and East Asia for the past 10 years, and has undertaken residency projects with Taipei Artist Village, Organhaus Chongqing and Sydney Serial Space. He is currently undertaking a PhD at the School of Creative Media at CUHK, researching the historical significance of computer game landscapes.
Trevor Yeung was born in 1988 in Guangdong Province, China. He graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at HKBU in 2010, and currently lives and works in Hong Kong. Yeung’s practice uses botanic ecology, horticulture, photography and installations as metaphors that reference human relationships. His recent biennials and exhibitions include “Cruising Pavilion” at the 16th International Architecture Biennale (Venice, Italy, 2018), the 38th EVA International Biennale (Limerick, Ireland, 2018), the 4th Dhaka Art Summit (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2018),“CHINA 8 –Paradigms of Art: Installation and Object Art” (Osthaus Museum Hagen, Germany, 2015) and the 10th Shanghai Biennale (China, 2014).
