Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to announce Ko Sin Tung’s exhibition at the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in Manchester, UK. A group show featuring 6 other Hong Kong based artists, ‘From Ocean to Horizon’ sees Ko Sin Tung exploring the city’s unique connection to the water, and will be her first time exhibiting in the UK.
The shifting, fluid relationship between the earth and the sky at the horizon reflects Hong Kong’s status as a city which defies categorization, a city of great contrasts. Coinciding with the 20th Anniversary of the city’s handover to China, Hong Kong is presented as a shifting, dynamic and idiosyncratic place, as fluid as the point where sea meets sky. Focusing on Hong Kong’s diverse landscape, of incredible natural beauty and dense metropolis, Ko Sin Tung has explored the tension between natural and man-made beauty and their symbiotic relationship within the city, through a new video work.
