Untitled (Love For Sale)

LEUNG Chi Wo

Media installation [Hong Kong]

A group of apparently unrelated symbols are assembled to address issues such as regional politics, identity, and historical coincidence. When the viewer pushes a button (made of a gold coin minted in 1996), it triggers a chain of destructive and reproductive actions, making music play, and pushing over a pile of newspapers in a separate location and then restacking them with an electronic mechanism. This completely upends our initial impression of the work.
