“DEBRIS” & HONG KONG’S IDENTITY BY VHILS
HONG KONG | EXHIBITION: Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils uncovers Hong Kong's identity story through the city's visual culture and his unique visual language. The artists compositions are created through a destructive process that removes layers of walls and other surfaces. "Debris" explores the notions of identity in contemporary's urban societies. In Hong Kong, in particular, Vhils emphasizes the identity transformations experienced by societies inhabiting a city that is constantly reinventing itself.
