Art & the City: 5 Hong Kong art exhibitions you can’t miss this month
PriV%te by Tony Oursler
The phenomenon of facial recognition is explored in New York-based Tony Oursler’s sixth show with Lehmann Maupin. PriV%te showcases a colourfully animated mix of video screens set in aluminium panels, and represent a continuation in the artist’s longstanding interest in the production of cultural identity and technology. These themes are of particular relevance today, as man’s relationship with technology becomes increasingly complex — the works in this exhibition seem to gaze at the viewer, evoking the larger cultural question of who is watching whom.
