Hong Kong Arts Policy and Strategy at the Turn of the Century (2000)

Hong Kong Arts Policy and Strategy at the Turn of the Century (2000)
C-type photograph, each in size of 30x40 inch

This was a series of 6 photographs in three pairs. They were originally produced for an exhibition at the Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo, as part of the event MORPHE 2000 (curated by Sabrina Fung). Thereafter, the series was shown at the Hong Kong Art Museum, for an exhibition of recent works from Hong Kong designers (curated by Kan Tai Keung). In 2008, the series was selected for the exhibition "Not about Truth: Chinese Conceptual Photography since the 90s" (curated by FAN Wanjen Anthea). Somehow, in the last moment, the art museum was not able to locate the original photographs (they were found some months after the event). My works were featured in the exhibition catalogue, but were absent from the exhibition. People thought, it was such a conceptual way to talk about the arts policy of Hong Kong.

Two sets of vintage photograph were made. Some years after the work was produced, I decided to conserve only the first two pairs, and removed the third pair entirely from the series.
