In dialogue with Farrells

690 x 518 URBAN DIALOGUESKY YUTAKA curated and designed the Urban Dialogue exhibition at The Fringe Club and The Peak Tower which opened on 15th April 2016.

In celebration of Farrells office 25 years in Hong Kong, the curatorial theme focuses on the architect- planner approach to city making and the exhibition is composed around a series of narratives and the stories of Farrells work which best exemplify the diversity in their work and growing presence in Asia.

Designed as a travelling exhibition, Hong Kong is the first stop in the tour and through the visual media of sketches, drawings, diagrams, models and commissioned film we convey the depth of their work focusing on the last 25 years.

The Peak Tower takes a different approach and combined with memorabilia from Sir Terry Farrell’s personal collection and original concept models, the exhibition is a celebration of the building as icon and public role of architecture in the city.

The exhibition has personal significance to us having once been architectural assistants in both the London and Hong Kong offices, we welcomed the chance to delve into the Farrell archives and re-visit their projects and to appreciate the evolution of their work from a curatorial perspective.

Join us and the Farrell team in a programme of events which extend these dialogues and create room for exchanges to happen.

Particular thanks to Ben Lau, Simon Chan, Andrew Shields, Ben MacLeod, Jackie Chung, Claire Pang, Richard Morrison, Ginny Chau Stefan Krummeck and Gavin Erasmus for providing valuable insights into the practice and for their collective efforts and support in realising the project.

Shilpa Gupta Exhibition at AAA

‘That Photo we never got’ is part of the ’15 Invitations for 15 Years’ series which is a research project taking form in Asia Art Archive’s library. A diverse collection of works, Gupta’s practice explores the dynamics of contexts, perception and cartographies of knowledge which incorporates methods of archiving into her work.

Drawing from the AAA’s collection between 1960s to 1980s, the installation interweaves between the display concentrated at the library’s facade and juxtaposes Gupta’s art with the AAA collection.

Realising Gupta’s vision since first exhibiting at the 2015 India Art Fair,  SKY YUTAKA collaborated with the artist and AAA’s team to design and produce an installation which would respect the artists vision and respond to the library’s unique site condition.
