July 7, 2023, Hong Kong: 56 Henry and Art Intelligence Global are thrilled to jointly present FOUND IN TRANSLATION, a group exhibition featuring works by Christopher K. Ho, Cynthia Talmadge, David Roy, Jo Messer, Kayode Ojo, Kevin Reinhardt, Kevin Zucker, and Laurie Simmons. The exhibition is organized by Eleanor Rines, founder of 56 Henry.
“Hotel rooms,” British playwright Tom Stoppard wrote, “inhabit a separate moral universe”. If travel removes us from our daily lives, the hotel as a makeshift home ad interim situates us at the liminal space between the familiar and the unknown, the public and the private, comfort and vulnerability, discovery and escape. Taking the site of the hotel as a point of departure, the exhibition FOUND IN TRANSLATION is envisioned as a sequel to Sophia Coppola’s notable 2003 comedy-drama film, “Lost in Translation” and explores the seduction of anonymity, the hotel as a physical and social space, transgressing boundaries, and chance connection.
