“After the Deluge” is a homecoming project of artist Kingsley Ng in response to his earlier solo at OzAsia Festival: in close proximity to the desert, Adelaide is among the driest regions in Australia; on the other side of the Earth, Hong Kong is also affected by climate change and heavy rains are becoming more and more frequent.
HKAC specially invited Mr. Kingsley Ng to give us a special tour on 28th January, 2018(Sunday) to Tai Hang Tung Stormwater Storage Tank, this underground space will unprecedentedly become the locale of a site-specific work of art. Don’t miss out, if you are interested.
Kingsley Ng, an interdisciplinary artist with a focus on conceptual, site-specific, participatory and process-based projects. He often works with the ephemeral and intangible, such as light, sound, space and time. Light is often used not only as a medium but also as a metaphor for art making—to cast light on the imperceptible, hidden or forgotten.
