Tsang Kin-Wah’s oeuvre can be characterised as a search for the meaning of life, with a full understanding of its potential futility. The conceptual underpinning of his solo presentation at the 56th Venice Biennale, The Infinite Nothing, is a reference to Friedrich Nietzsche’s notorious pronouncement of the death of God in The Gay Science (1882). In this exhibition, Tsang brings together a host of philosophical concepts expressed through metaphor and allegory, along with religious symbolism and popular cultural references in four video works titled 0, I, I and 0.

In the first talk in the series, exhibition curators Doryun Chong and Stella Fong, and artist Tsang Kin-Wah will share their experience of mounting Hong Kong’s participation in Venice from concept to realisation. They will be joined by Professor Chan Yuk Keung, a past participating artist in the Venice Biennale, who will expand the discussion on Tsang Kin-Wah’s artistic practice and representing Hong Kong in Venice.
