Overview:

Jockey Club Innovation Tower is a building of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University located on Chatham Road South in Hung Hom district, Kowloon. (wikipedia) It was designed by Zaha Hadid.


Director/Curator's Statement:

The exhibition at PolyU flows smoothly between positions. Through the creation of dialogical pairings, the conjunctions and disjunctions we found in the work are made more explicitly apparent. Both harmony and discord are manifest in a variety of ways: in the repetition of narratives; in the flow of visual language to be found in the animations; in the way that cultural heritage is playfully documented and transformed. The more open space of Zaha Hadid’s impressive building allows for the presentation of larger environments and installations. And finally, from an apparent dead-end, the viewer encounters ‘Ouroboros’, Moebius and a ‘Mirror’, and is guided back to the start, this time in reverse, allowing for a second storyline to unfold.
