Karin Weber Gallery is hosting Hong Kong-based artist Go Hung’s first exhibition. Titled “[uk1] [lau6] [pin1] [fung4] [lin4] [ye2] [yu5],” a Cantonese colloquialism which roughly translates to “It never rains but pours,” the exhibition presents a new body of work inspired by the day-to-day challenges faced by underprivileged members of society since the pandemic. Recycled materials from the streets like used paper and hotel soap bars are repurposed into installations. The exhibition reflects the artist’s engagement with social inequality in his own artistic practice. A share of proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to Oxfam Hong Kong.
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.
