September 14, 2020 @ 12:00 am 9:00 am UTC-8

To battle the Covid-19 pandemic, people are staying home to avoid social distancing. Tai Kwun Contemporary is presenting “VR 360° Virtual Gallery” for the two exhibitionsThey Do Not Understand Each Other and My Body Holds Its Shape. From which, art lovers from around the world can navigate an in-depth cultural tour across Asia during the isolation time.

“They Do Not Understand Each Other” is co-presented by The National Museum of Art, Osaka and Singapore Art Museum. With an aim to contemplate the communication and interaction between different Asian cultures through art, audiences are offered with a journey towards the intricacy of cultural exchange and the understanding it promotes

“They Do Not Understand Each Other” is not only an exhibition title, it comes from Tsubasa Kato’s artwork with the same title. Kato’s work showcases a monolingual Japanese man and South Korean man who cannot communicate with each other driving a signboard of a map into the ground, one riding on the other’s shoulder. By scanning the QR code in the picture, it displays Google Map with a pin dropped onto that desert island where the performance took place, Tsushima Island, located near the border between Japan and South Korea.
