[WEBCAST] Collective Conversations: The Historical Art of Andrew LukVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Evening Conversation with artist Andrew Luk, moderated by curator Andre Chan
This program will take place in English.
Due to the recent increase in confirmed Covid-19 cases across Hong Kong, this program will now take place as an online webinar only and ASHKs venue will be closed to the public.
In this evening program, artist Andrew Luk will detail some of the concepts behind his work featured in our current exhibition Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong. Andrew will explore some of the channels he travels through when planning and preparing for his artworks and how looking closely at history and the art of conversation between different stories and elements informs his practice. The conversation will be moderated by curator Andre Chan.
Andrew Luk (b. 1988, New Jersey, USA) is a multimedia artist whose practice illustrates the everchanging representation and perception of violence. Inspired by post-structuralism and Paul Virilio’s practice, Luk investigates how civilization regards itself in relation to nature. He examines civilization while studying the natural forces of entropy, anti-entropy, and preservation. The artist’s interest lies in how these seemingly divergent stories entangle to embrace complexity and tell the stories that cannot be told on paper. More than just a physical site, Luk sees this heritage space as an elaborate system of interwoven stories and ideas that offers metaphorical meaning for its visitors.
André Chan worked in a number of international galleries and produced various exhibitions around the world. He is the co-founder of Arts Collective in Hong Kong and his curatorial work is now focusing on artists’ practices and contemporary city issues. He curated exhibitions and performances in various cities including Shanghai, Seoul, Gwangju, Chicago, Vancouver and Hong Kong.
