Videotage is excited to announce ๐˜ผ ๐˜ฝ๐™ค๐™ค๐™  ๐™ค๐™› ๐™๐™ง๐™š๐™š๐™จ, the debut solo exhibition by Hong Kong-based artist ๐—ฃ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ก๐—ฒ๐—น๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ป from 17 September to 8 October 2021. Featuring the latest works of the artist which includes a series of paintings that combine machine learning and traditional ink painting and a virtual reality short film, the exhibition delves into the past, present and future of the forestry in Hong Kong juxtaposed with the artistโ€™s memories and experiences of growing up with trees in Australia. Continuing his exploration of landscape and interactive technologies, the artist has envisioned a transformation of the urban forest via machine drawings and VR experience that touches upon topics of art and technology; physical environment and virtual reality; personal and local history.

Under Videotageโ€™s Leave Your Body Residency, the artistโ€™s sculptural trees are also implanted in the virtual site of Cattle Depot Artist Village where Videotage is located on Minecraft, engaging poetic and site-specific interaction with the historic red-brick buildings built in the British colonial era.

โ The exhibition is also an associated program of ๐—–๐—œ๐—ง๐—ฌ๐—” ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿญ, a large-scale international art exchange program between six global cities including Hong Kong, Beijing, Tallinn, Rome, San Francisco and Macau. The Hong Kong session explores the interrelationship of spatiality between actual space and digital space.
