Scope and Content

Chinese Arts Centre poster advertising an exhibition by Hung Keung. A solo piece by one of Hong Kong’s emerging contemporary media artists, Hung Keung. The artist’s work addresses the longevity of Chinese philosophy, questioning how human beings in modern society interact with the concept of time and space through the ancient philosophy of Dao. Dao, although difficult to define as a Westerner, relays principles about the flow of the universe. Following Daoism, one aims to harmonise one’s will with nature, maintaining balance in the world.
