Gallery HZ is delighted to present “The Happy Hours,” a solo exhibition by Hong Kong artist Ghost Mountain Field. This is the artist’s second solo presentation at Gallery HZ, following his first titled “Chop Suey” in 2020. The exhibition will run from 16 September to 23 October 2021.
The Happy Hours is a culmination of Ghost Mountain Field’s multifaceted practice, showcasing new works exploring entertainment culture through Cantonese pop culture and social traditions, and how they influence cultural taste within the context of contemporary Asia. It is a gleeful celebration of Cantonese traditions and entertainment that prompts viewers to contemplate on the shifting cultural landscape of contemporary Asia through pop culture motifs and symbolisms. While globalisation and multiculturalism have propagated generic standards of perceptions, the artist reminds us that much is to be appreciated in the beauty of diversity.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
