KAF x Q Contemporary | Tracing the Fragments @ Gold Ball

Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija has always focused his oeuvre on the interactions between people and their surroundings rather than aesthetics. By combining elements of visual art, culinary traditions, sports, performances and social interaction, he encourages the public to be a part of the art-making process.



In this interactive piece, Tiravanija references one of the most significant works of Slovakian artist Július Koller (1939 – 2007), J.K. Ping-Pong Club (U.F.O.) Environment (1970). Koller’s practice constantly questions the world and the cultural context, and opens up possibilities for a humanistic utopia at unexpected places. In Ping-Pong Society, Koller set up a ping-pong club for a period of one month where visitors could play. Tiravanija’s untitled 2015 (demain est la question) reactivates this piece; reinvestigating the way visitors relate and interact with the work.



Demain est la question literally means “tomorrow is the question”. The back-and-forth motion of ping-pong ball alludes to mutual communication between individuals, societies and cultures.



The piece wraps up the showcase at 6F, K11 MUSEA, the first-ever comprehensive presentation of Central Eastern European art in Hong Kong and a cornerstone to create dialogues with other cultures.

To accompany the showcase, K11 Art Foundation and Q Contemporary will present a series of events, including guided tours and workshops. It is honoured to have invited renowned curator Wang Wei Wei to conduct an online panel in late February to discuss Central Eastern European art.



K11 Art Foundation and Q Contemporary have also co-curated a one-stop self-learning online resources centre. In addition to helping the general public better understand the historical background and context of Central Eastern European and Chinese contemporary art, the greater context also allows viewers to ponder the inner dialogues and interactions found between each piece.



The curated resources, from academic research to varied materials, allow visitors to learn beyond Tracing the Fragments. Visitors are encouraged to explore and discover cultural similarities and differences between Central Eastern European and Chinese art practices, deepening their understanding of both cultures.

ABOUT
Rirkrit Tiravanija

Born in 1961, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lives and works in New York, U.S.A., Berlin, Germany and Chiang Mai, Thailand. The work of Rirkrit Tiravanija has not stopped questioning the format of artworks and the exhibition system. A mix of performance, sculpture, installation, and more, with Tiravanija, the artistic space transforms into a place of social interaction. Frequently immaterial, his work invents new connections in a world based on reciprocity, conviviality, and hospitality. The artist enjoys overcoming the usual spatial and temporal limitations of the “white cube”. Recent projects and solo exhibitions include: Hirschhorn Smithsonian Museum, Washington DC, USA (2019); Chaos Omotesando, Tokyo, and Fondation Luma in Arles, France (2018); untitled 2017 (fear eats the soul) (white flag), Creative Time, NY in collaboration with more than 20 American cultural institutions (2018); and All the worlds futures, La 56e Biennale di Venezia, Arsenale Artiglierie, Venice (2015). He has exhibited widely in numerous institutions including Walker Art Center in Minneapolis; Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; Garage museum of contemporary art in Moscow; Tate Modern in London; and Centre Pompidou in Paris. Tiravanija received the Hugo Boss Prize from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2004.

Over 1,000 Years of Craftsmanship Comes to Modern Life

The Glorious Heritage
Presented by K11 Craft & Guild Foundation, The Glorious Heritage celebrates the age-old craftsmanship of Baibaoqian and Luodian inlay art. With antique masterpieces and reinterpreted craftwork by contemporary artisans and designers, the exhibition tells the story of the long-forgotten inlay art and how the endangered artistry can be innovatively adapted to modern living, which K11 MUSEA offers. The iridescent decorations of the inlay exhibits provide a shimmering kaleidoscope of colours against the gleaming backdrop of Gold Ball at K11 MUSEA.

Baibaoqian
Dating back to late Ming dynasty 400 years ago, Baibaoqian refers to the intricate wood inlay work comprised of variegated semi-precious materials. Each inlay component is skilfully carved separately before the pieces are assembled together to make up a pictorial image rich in colour, texture and depth.

Luodian
With over 1,000 years of history dating back to the Tang dynasty, Luodian is a distinctive decorative method featuring Mother-of-Pearl inlay techniques. Luo refers to the texture of the inlay material while Dian refers to the decorative process.
