Elegy on Resistance    ARTHK12, Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre 17 - 20 May 2012   Elegy on Resistance  explored the individual as a figure of resistance in the modern city. Its central work,  Soloist , a hooded faceless figure, was seated cross-legged like Buddha amidst four CCTV cameras ( Quartet 1-4)  and a series of hanging hoodies ( Chorus 1-7 ). This lone figure stood in for the fear and misunderstanding those deemed ‘outsiders’ in society inspire. Watched suspiciously by the cameras in what could have been a clothes shop (especially given it appeared at an art fair), the hunched body is strangely meditative. It remains inscrutable in spite of our efforts to monitor and control it.
