Metaphysical Ging Zik

Hong Kong | Open call for art | Virtual exhibition






【Theme: Metaphysical Ging Zik 形上驚蟄】

The A R T • 9 is pleased to announce an open call for art opportunity for the coming online juried art exhibition in mid April, “Metaphysical Ging Zik 形上驚蟄”. The exhibition will focus on the negative side of humanity and morality in our modern life.

“Ging Zik” is a Cantonese term which refers to the insects that are awakened from winter sleep and the soil, and it serves as a symbol of the start of the first season in a year. The curatorial committee favours any works that can explore and respond to the rise of the darkness and toxicity from human nature, modern humanity and morality with a metaphysical approach.
