  • Catalogue Essay

    Phillips is proud to present works by Hong Kong-based artists Adrian Wong, Frank Sin, Chow Chun Fai, Lee Kit and Trevor Yeung. These works exemplify the city’s healthy, vibrant and diverse local art scene, one that continues to fascinate Hong Kong’s community as well as explore the interdimensionalities of the sprawling metropolis that it occupies.

    Though each artwork and artist seems different and detached from one another, they are all in fact all interlinked by their very conception. Through their creations, these artists achieve a kind of self-realization, a preservation of their own ideals and practices - artistically, culturally and otherwise in a city that is in a constant state of rapid and dramatic evolution. In their eyes we see Hong Kong as a city suspended in an eternal battle between conservation and modernization.

    What ultimately unites these artists is their fierce love for the city they occupy, its rich history and diverse heritage; a love then coupled with an intense insecurity about the future that awaits it.
