This exhibition is a presentation on process, building and preserving, and precipitating. It is not an exhibition to display accomplishments.\r\n\r\nChanged from a solo exhibition to a two-men show, \"TIME WILL TELL\" walks you through visual communicator Stanley Wong\'s (anothermountainman) metamorphosis from commercial work to personal creations, his promotion of well-being and social values, and the discovery of his two distinctive faces — Stanley Wong and anothermountainman.\r\n\r\nThe exhibition is divided into three parts — black, white and grey — showcasing anothermountainman\'s personal creations, including his \"Positive Hong Kong\" redwhiteblue series, created over the past two decades; Stanley Wong\'s graphic design and advertising works, such as his renowned early 1990s MTR advertisements series, and his corporate social value branding projects. Also shown to the public for the first time are a series of his large photographic works and his latest photo diary: Time Will Tell: 80/20 Enlightenment. Forty years. The exhibition starts with his latest work From Dust to Dust / 302 Days and concludes with the installation Impermanence, inviting visitors to mindfully revisit Stanley Wong x anothermountainman\'s 40 years of work and practice, savouring the impermanence of life together.\r\n\r\nAbout Stanley Wong\r\n\r\nAfter five years as a graphic designer, anothermountainman (Stanley Wong) started his career in the advertising industry and worked as a Chief Executive and Creative Director for many international advertising companies for fifteen years. Later, with his passion and enthusiasm for creative designs, Wong became a director for television commercials and established 84000Communications in 2007 and branched out his artistic career. Wong is the recipient of more than 600 Asian and international awards for his art, design, photography and advertising works. Many of his art works have been exhibited overseas in international museums and are now part of their permanent collection. In May 2012, Wong was also awarded the Artist of the Year 2011 (Visual Arts) from Hong Kong Arts Development Awards and the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Awards 2012 from Hong Kong Museum of Art.\r\n\r\nAdditionally, anothermountainman is also a very passionate photographer, focusing his work on social issues. For the past 10 years, Wong gained international awareness with his ‘redwhiteblue’ artwork collection, representing the ‘positive spirit of Hong Kong.’ He came to international attention with this series, which he presented at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 representing Hong Kong.

"The Unfinished Return of Yu Man-hon": Screening and Extend Reading
July 30, 2020 (Thursday)
Venue: Asia Society Hong Kong center, 9 Justice Drive, Admiralty

Asia Society members : Free admission
Non-members : Free admission
Registration at : 18:30
Event starts at : 19:00

The Unfinished Return of Yu Man-hon focuses on Wu’s cultural imaginary and extensive research into the unaccountable disappearance of Yu Man-hon, a mentally disabled and an autistic boy who crossed the Hong Kong-Shenzhen border into the mainland and disappeared on August 24, 2000. His case remains unsolved to this day. \r\n\r\nYu’s disappearance occurred shortly after the 1997 handover in Hong Kong. His case lingers as a vivid memory for many locals - both as a prime example of the injustice inflicted on the people by the corrupted Hong Kong-Mainland legal system, and as a symbol of the gradual disappearance of the complexity of Hong Kong’s colonial memories. Yu\'s disability caused him not to be able to memorize his name, family and home, and lose at the same time his capacity of speech. His anonymity opened up multiple identities: a child actor, a young boy sitting in Mc Donald\'s, boys on the bus, people who left their hometown, nation, old film props, movie theater, lanterns, an alternative divine for the border. \r\n\r\nThe work follows an abstract narrative where Man-hon returns to the material world, retrieving lost memories of his disappearance in the process. The artist’s camera floats through the city’s myriad pedestrian spaces, lingering at certain familiar places to which Man-hon felt particular attachment –a swing set or favorite restaurant, a local supermarket or bus-depot, a ferry or market. The short film highlights the emotional fragility of our memory, attempts to challenge the familiar interpretation of Man-Hon as an embodiment of loss, and to perceive his image as an enlightened being rather than a ghost.
