Island Resort. 2014

This work is by a duo of artists carrying out ongoing research into territories, borders, islands, and sovereignty through cross-disciplinary practice and fieldworks to map the ocean, islands, coastlines, the environment and ecosystems, etc. Inspired by the Ishihara color vision test, they embedded pink and green sea urchin shells, reminiscent of the number 69 or the yin-yang symbol, in the landscape. It is a work that can be interpreted in various ways: the diverse range of visual reading, the possibility or impossibility of communication, and the uncertainty of boundaries and territory.

Established in 1996, based in Chai Wan, Hong Kong.
