Ting Ting Cheng participates in the exhibition “A Tree Fell in the Forest, and No One's There” in Emerging Curators Project 2018
Since its inception in 2014, the Power of Art’s Emerging Curators Project has now grown to be the contemporary art museum’s annual academic undertaking, whose mission is to explore present-day meanings of art exhibition as well as new possibilities of curation. On the display of one of the winning curatorial plans “A Tree Fell in the Forest, and No One’s There,” Hong Kong artist Ting Ting Cheng presented her artworks, which the themes focus on personal observations and memorial reimaginations. Curated by André Chan and Jing CY Chong, the exhibition title originates from an ancient philosophical conundrum – is the observed reality confined to people’s sum of available perceptions but not the totality of the material noumenon? Artists produce their artworks in the process reiterate the way they understand the world. The resulting works thus are the product of the linkage between personal cognition and reality, demonstrating the artists’ system of thinking and expression.
