[ONLINE] My Body Holds Its Shape: Exploring the Concept of Sculptures, Limitations, and Distance
Why We Recommend it
My Body Holds Its Shape explores limitations and distance to bring about reflection on sustainability, our connection to nature, and empathy for those who are distant and confined in this unusual time. The exhibition can be experienced online, through the realistic “VR 360° Virtual Gallery”.
Tai Kwun Contemporary presents My Body Holds Its Shape, featuring newly commissioned works from five artists: Tap Chan, Thea Djordjadze, Jason Dodge, Eisa Jocson and Pratchaya Phinthong.
The exhibition experiments with concepts of sculpture while exploring limitations and distance, aiming to bring about reflection on sustainability, our connection to nature, and empathy for those who are distant and confined in this unusual time.
Set in the historic F Hall—a former printing facility and women’s prison—the exhibition takes the metaphorical shape of a body as it becomes live from the first hour with Jocson’s work-in-progress performance Zoo. Sculptures, photographs and narratives cohabit the space with songs, moving bodies and an escape route. The exhibition is conceived as an experience akin to a walk through lines of limits, divisions and connections.
Joining Hong Kong’s battle against the third wave of COVID-19, the exhibition is also offered online through the “VR 360° Virtual Gallery” platform, found on their website. The sleek interface allows one to feel like they are walking through the gallery, providing an immersive cultural experience and an escape from isolation.
