Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders, Hong Kong Exhibition
Time Out says
A continuation and a response to Tse's previous exhibition Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice
The work of Los Angeles-based Hong Kong artist Shirley Tse will be presented at West Kowloon’s M+ Pavilion art museum in a new exhibit, Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong. The exhibition is both a continuation and a response to her previous exhibition Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice, and will include new configurations of her installations modified to its current exhibition space.
Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong is comprised of two different installations: Negotiated Differences and Playcourt. Negotiated Differences is a sprawling, angular installation of 3D-printed joints and hand-crafted wooden forms that draw attention to aspects of the pavilion’s architectural design, and Playcourt is a collection of interesting sculptural reimaginations of equipment and anthropomorphic forms, even featuring radio antennas that are tuned to local non-commercial frequencies. As neither Shirley Tse nor guest curator Christina Li was able to be there in-person to install the artworks, they had to remotely consult with the M+ curatorial and installation team to successfully execute their vision, reflecting the responsiveness and change in the ways that much of the world currently works and lives.
