Berlin-based Mariana Hahn, who last year took up MILL6’s artist residency in Hong Kong, and Kwan Sheung Chi, who was born here, both confront specific elements within the art, culture, and political ecology of the region. Yet, this is not an exhibition that reflects only the myths and realities of Hong Kong: the rumbustious story of its colonial past, as well as the wavering uncertainty of its uber-materialist present, also resonate strongly in experience elsewhere. In different ways, both Hahn and Kwan pick up on this in their work and, in spite of obvious differences in their education and upbringing, their work has certain parallels.
