The ‘Irregular Plurals’ exhibition series progresses from ‘Habitat’ to ‘Dwelling’, as we shift our focus from the residing creatures, to the spaces they call home. Through various modes of perception and exploring the intricacies of everyday life, we delve deep into the details and stories that bind humanity to their places of residence.
With Pat Heung farmer-artist Lo Lai Lai Natalie and founder of Project CROW Matthew Kwan, you will go on a moonlight journey to Pat Heung’s Tsing Tam Reservoirs where you will be able to observe their creative processes and discover their source of inspirations.
To expand upon the narrative of ‘cohabitation’ coined by Hannah Arendt, we must first contemplate: who exactly are we referring to as a ‘collective’? The inaugural exhibition of the ‘Irregular Plurals’ series, ‘Habitat’, seeks to emancipate viewers from the conventional anthropocentric perspective by Lo Lai Lai Natalie and Yuen Nga Chi’s work. It invites them to explore the subjectivity not only of humans but also of the cohabiting animals, plants, microorganisms, and even the inherent essence of sunlight and air.
Taking place between August and December, Irregular Plurals is the first exhibition series under the WMA biennial theme “Home”. We invite three pairs of image-makers to bring forth their works and art practices for dialogues surrounding the nature, cityscapes and communities in Hong Kong, seeking the various possibilities for connection and cohabitation.
