GARDEN HONG KONG
GARDEN HONG KONG at Osage Gallery is a one-week finissage art show of Ars Electronica 2021 Garden Hong Kong. Introducing Artificial Intentionalities, the Garden statement reads “Ars Electronica Garden Hong Kong’s curatorial inquiry explores various paths to better understand the entanglements that surface in the tectonic interplay of divergent worlds, where robots challenge social models, artworks try to understand each other, and the faraway meets the nearby."

The birth of the art-subject and its proliferation in the art world exemplifies a clear departure from the traditional status of artworks as objects. It enables artists to explore divergent paths as the behaviour of artworks goes beyond biomimicry and the mirroring of human attitudes, making disjuncture a powerful means through which to interrogate different levels of social concern and human belief.
