After two months of hectic, things are coming together!
Can’t wait for Basel in May!
Great to know almost 2 months ago (few days after I came back from Dublin for the Castletown House residence), I am selected as one of the 17 projects to be presented at Encounters section at Art Basel Hong Kong 2014 during 15 – 18th May. I am working on the project with Pearl Lam Galleries.https://www.artbasel.com/en/Hong-Kong/About-the-Show/2014-Exhibitors?sector=09EC8EA8BA1A45ADA85ABCEEC7563649
“Pearl Lam Galleries (Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore) will present The Remnant of My Volition (Force Majeure), 2014, by Hong Kong artist Morgan Wong (*1984). The new installation continues Wong’s interest in the practice of durational performance with research in materialization of time, and involves a seemingly white wall which the artist had peeled off over fifty-thousand stickers on it. Not wanting to stage a venue for reactionary measures, this new installation provides a space for contemplation and explores the irrepressibility of time under the state of one country two systems in Hong Kong.”

While watching documentary about Beckett’s life. I come across this piece. A piece which remind me of a conversation with Conor Hanratty who is also from Ireland during our AIR in Dublin Castletown House.
