Household Gods: HART Presents Multimedia Works by Hong Kong Artists

Why We Recommend it

Household Gods showcases four specially commissioned works by Hong Kong artists that explore the relationship between mankind and the supernatural, featuring paintings, sculptures, installations and sound work.


Household Gods presents works from artists Nadim Abbas, Shane Aspegren, Tap Chan, and Wu Jiaru that were created during their time in the HART Social Studio, which aimed to nurture dialogue and collaboration between the artists.

Each of the artists adopt experimental practices in their work, pointing towards the overarching theme on how the household—mankind’s most intimate, primitive setting—interacts with the supernatural. Human objects, perception, sensation and norms are explored, offering a fresh perspective on modern life.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication outlining the inspiration behind each work, a digital journal documenting the collaboration between curator and artists to create the exhibition, and a series of live-streamed conversations between the curator and artists.

Household Gods can also be accessed as a virtual exhibition on their website.
