As part of a series of art talks co-presented by Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) and Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA), de Sarthe presented contemporary artist Andrew Luk will have a public discussion with de Sarthe's Hong Kong director Willem Molesworth, titled "Futuristic Past-Present".
We all live in the past. The fraction of a second it takes for our minds to process the world around us is a guarantee that we always lag behind the actual current moment. Nonetheless, the world at large seems to be spiraling uncontrollably forward. Fictional elements of sci-fi novels that once seemed far away are now ever present reminders of our current era, one that is stuck between the near past, the unattainable present, and a far off future. Andrew Luk’s practice, strongly rooted in Hong Kong and the city’s unique place within the world-politic, engages these ideas and more. Willem Molesworth, director of de Sarthe will discuss these ideas and more with Andrew himself on the eve of Luk’s participation in Asia Society’s exhibition “Next Act” and de Sarthe’s “Shifting Landscapes.”
The art talk takes place on 28 March 2020, from 11:30 am - 12:00 pm at Asia Society Hong Kong Center, 9 Justice Road, Admiralty, Hong Kong.
