"Hong Kong Artist's Biennale 2005"

Lunatic collectors. Superstitious sowers. Eccentric woolgatherers...This artist run show is an open forum for images, words and sounds. It is concerned with non-hierchical collecting, with anarchic exhibition systems. Enabled through an international network of artists' web forums, personal relationships and chance notices, the project traverses China, Asia, North America, Europe, South America and the Middle East...And there is a twisted romanticism at the heart of this project - built as it is around a belief in freewheeling (non)curating. In this spirit artists from all over the world have submitted their work, making this one of the most international exhibitions ever held in Hong Kong. In the end, the entire project will be archived in a time-capsule cum 'seed'...
The leftovers of the exhibition will be buried in the site of the future West Kowloon Cultural District site, a little semi-toxic seed for the future of Hong Kong's cultural topography. Another version will be taken to Venice as an ad-hoc 'addition' to the Venice Biennalełand dropped into the lagoon. Here the contributions ultimately come together as kernels and curses towards the future of art. Art as international, superstitious agriculture?
