“It is by virtue of plurality that each of us is capable of acting and relating to others in ways that are unique and distinctive, and in so doing of contributing to a network of actions and relationships that is infinitely complex and unpredictable” 

— Hannah Arendt “The Human Condition”


Since August, WMA has launched the exhibition series ‘Irregular Plurals’, featuring 3 dual exhibitions titled ‘Habitat’, ‘Dwelling,’ and the ongoing “Commune,” explores how numerous individuals practise cohabitation in this place. This artist talk invites Professor Pang Laikwan and 7 artists from ‘Irregular Plurals’ to engage in a conversation. The works from these artists collectively showcase the plurality of species, the diverse perspectives on observing the city, and the multi-layered nature of communication. How do these intersected connections inspire us to learn the lesson of cohabitation?
