The gallery  is pleased to present Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s solo exhibition at both Sik On Street, and Tin Wan. Titled A Planet of Silence, this is Apichatpong’s second exhibition in Hong Kong after the touring exhibition Serenity of Madness: Apichatpong’s Selective Survey at ParaSite Hong Kong in 2016, showcasing cinematic and photographic works created by the acclaimed auteur in the last two years. By paying tribute to a beloved friend who has recently passed away, and by diarising treasured moments and sensual fragments from life, Apichatpong speaks of the meaning of love, memory and solidarity re-defined in a post-pandemic era.

Kiang Malingue (formerly Edouard Malingue Gallery) was founded in Hong Kong in 2010 to build a critical dialogue between Asian and international contemporary artists, both emerging and established, who combine aesthetic concern with conceptual enquiry, and work across different disciplines from video and installation to painting and sound. In 2016 the gallery opened a second space in Shanghai, creating a wider platform of exchange for its roster of artists. In addition to presenting dynamic solo exhibitions, the gallery pushes the boundaries of art in public spaces and stimulates artistic discourse through collaborations with curators worldwide.
