Prize sights and sounds on offer

Central Station | Cissy So 3 Dec 2019

The M+ Museum is set to present its inaugural Sigg Prize exhibition based on outstanding artistic ideas from Greater China.

The exhibition at the M+ Pavilion Art Park in the West Kowloon Cultural District opens to the public - admission is free - on December 7 and runs to April 13.

The event bundles works created by the six artists shortlisted for the Sigg Prize.

Hu Xiaoyuan's Spheres of Doubt addresses the fading of time and the nature of reality by using raw silk and other materials. Liang Shuo's bamboo structure In the Peak will be outside the gallery to connect Victoria Peak and the M+ building.

The other four artists have video works.

Lin Yilin's Typhoon is based on his native Guangzhou and goes into urban space, Shen Xin's Provocation of the Nightingale explores identity and trauma, while Tao Hui's Hello, Finale! reflects on questions related to death and endings, with different scenarios on nine TV sets in one room.

And Samson Young's Muted Situations #22: Muted Tchaikovsky's 5th is an orchestral performance that is - as the title suggests - toned right down. The intention is to draw attention to sounds that can go unnoticed.
