VENUE island6 Hong Kong, #1 New Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong SAR
ARTISTS island6 art collective (Liu Dao 六岛)

Anyone who has ever experienced a gut feeing knows how powerful and persuasive it can be. Controlled by the inner psyche of cognition, the commonly depicted battle of head versus heart always seems to leave one thing glaringly omitted from the equation: the stomach. To trust in your gut or to betray it is a fundamental human experience that can teach us invaluable lessons about ourselves, and the world around us. Join us as we take a long stringy foray into the world of human guts (both real and imagined). This new series of art works from the Liu Dao collective seeks to ultimately learn- what does it mean to really have guts?
For the first time this year the Liu Dao collective will be participating in Asia Week Hong Kong. In its 3rd year, this event will be host to lecturers, educators and collectors all celebrating The Heritage Edition from May 27th to June 11th, 2015. During this time island6 will be collaborating in sharing and promoting new media concepts in contemporary art through Hong Kong and Greater China.  Follow your gut and take a chance by joining us on June 2nd 2015 from 7pm-10pm for our most animated vernissage so far. Located at 1 New Street, Sheung Wan, the event's wine will be flowing with a generous sponsorship form Corks. (read more >>>)
