Tino Sehgal

23 October - 5 December

Free

EVENT DESCRIPTION

One of the most important artists in recent decades, the work of Tino Sehgal (b. 1976, UK; lives in Berlin) manifests itself not by way of the object but by ephemeral constructed situations. Redefining the museum as a place for social relations, Sehgal radically eliminates the conventional art object, shifting the focus to live interconnections—compositions of voices, choreographies, and people, without involving or generating any physical materials.

A new episode of trust & confusion presents two significant works by Tino Sehgal: These Associations and This Variation. Originally commissioned for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, These Associations involves participants of various ages and backgrounds, from all walks of life. Adapted for the context of Hong Kong, 30 participants at any given time transform Tai Kwun’s historic Prison Yard into a changing and fluctuating live environment. In the 3/F JC Contemporary is This Variation where Sehgal’s most exuberant and musical work opens up dance to be experienced through listening and sensing.
