Unit 12 Cattle Depot Artist Village, 63 Ma Tau Kok Road, Ma Tau Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Artists | Tse Ming-chong, Francis Yu, Ho Siu-kee and Tam Wai-ping
In 2008, Tse Ming-chong, Francis Yu, Ho Siu-kee and Tam Wai-ping held an exhibition in a flat in Yaumatei. In the artworks exhibited could be found their belief and doubts about art. That was a night of gathering between the four artists and those who came to visit the show. When the visitors left and silence fell, the four of them stayed behind until daybreak, when the darkness outside the window was cleared away by the light of dawn.
The four artists travelled together to the Gobi Desert in late 2017 and documented what they experienced and reflected on during the trip in the artworks they produced. “The Crossing between East and West” is a collection of their works in response to the Gobi trip. Having studied and practised art against both Chinese and Western backgrounds, they explore the many facets of cultural exchange based on their own experience.
The exhibition is an extension of the four artists’ art making in the past years. From four different perspectives, namely contact, content, context and concept, each of them reflects on his own journey of art studies in both the East and West, and examines his understanding of art and life as an artist.
