Tour de force Hong Kong Tatler

Louis Vuit­ton and mo­bilised the city’s cre­ative com­mu­nity for an art project of am­bi­tious scale

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

It is tak­ing a cast of thou­sands, so to speak, to bring the LV Un­charted Ter­ri­to­ries project to fruition. The stars of this cre­ative extravaganza are the eight artists—flora Lau and Wong Ping, Wing Shya and An­gela Su, Joyce Wang and Adrian Wong, and Kevin Poon and Anais Mak. In these pairs, they are cre­at­ing works that muse on the con­cept of the jour­ney. Be­hind the scenes are teams of videog­ra­phers, pho­tog­ra­phers and jour­nal­ists who visit the artists at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals to doc­u­ment their progress.

It has taken many months, mul­ti­ple shoots and in­ter­views, and great flex­i­bil­ity from ev­ery­one in­volved to bring this mul­ti­plat­form spec­ta­cle close to fruition—and it hasn’t been with­out a few hitches. Lo­gis­ti­cal chal­lenges have re­quired the artists to re­assess con­cepts and tweak pro­jects more than a few of times. Fur­ther­more, their work is in­cred­i­bly di­verse—some of it film, some per­for­mance, some in­stal­la­tion—all chal­leng­ing to il­lus­trate in print. Nev­er­the­less, the results are im­pres­sive.
