“Hong Kong Perspectives” will present different perspectives and aspects of art creation in Hong Kong, by three artists: Chen Tong, Szelit Cheung and ACC Fellow Fiona Wong. While we are viewing an object, its possible forms have been already framed by the borders of our consciousness. A present “view” is sincerely objective yet reflects oneself as well, thus different ways of viewing in the same space indeed constitute their respective concerns. From identity, political situation to humanity, those stories echo through the history of Hong Kong.
