Tai Kwun Contemporary Exhibition – “They Do Not Understand Each Other”
25 May - 13 September
What does it mean to understand another? This group exhibition draws from the title of an artwork by Tsubasa Kato, in which the Japanese-speaking artist attempts to cooperate with a collaborator from Korea. Despite being unable to understand each other’s languages, it would appear they find some measure of connection, finally completing their coordinated task upon an island set in a sea that separates – or bridges – the two nations.
Artworks on show range from the collections of the National Museum of Art, Osaka (NMAO) and the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) to new commissions – which consider the negotiations and expectations of culture.
