In a groundbreaking collaboration between HOFA Gallery and Digital Art Fair, the visionary talents of Sougwen Chung, an acclaimed AI artist, are set to grace the sophisticated space of K11 MUSEA with her exhibition titled “Us in Another Form”. This artistic endeavor is gracefully set to be a part of the vibrant Art Karnival, inviting enthusiasts and curious minds alike from March 26 through May 19, 2024, within the artistic haven of the K11 Art & Culture Centre’s 6th floor.

Sougwen Chung, of Chinese-Canadian heritage, is pioneering the revolutionary confluence of human ingenuity and machine intelligence within the art sphere. Garnering recognition as a TIME100 Top AI Innovator, along with accolades from her stints at MIT Media Lab and as a Google Artist in Residence, Sougwen’s artistic inquiry delves deep into human-machine collaboration. Her distinguished creations involve a series of robots she designed, named D.O.U.G. (Drawing Operations Unit Generation), which she employs as an integral part of her creative process.

The “Us in Another Form” exhibition presents a rich tapestry of Chung’s explorations into a partnership with machines that transcends traditional augmentation. Incorporating elements like biosensors, computer vision, and virtual reality, Chung curates an immersive environment that speculates on new hybrid worlds, blurring the boundaries between humanity and machinery. This visionary work challenges existing narratives about AI, offering a harmonious fusion of technology and a human touch, with robots serving not just as tools, but as partners in creation.

Adrian Cheng’s K11 MUSEA, where the exhibition is hosted, is a contemporary cultural and retail icon situated on the vibrant Victoria Dockside of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. Since its inauguration in 2019, it has emerged as a beacon of cultural retail, ingeniously blending art, culture, and innovation to meet the evolving desires of its visitors for immersive experiences that elevate daily life.

Reflecting on her work, Chung shared her thoughts, highlighting the critical balance between traditional creativity and technological advancements. She emphasized the importance of creating new tools and AI systems as a means to engage with the profound existential queries presented by technology, fostering a space where hope and apprehension can coexist.

Founded in London in 2012 by Elio D’Anna and Simonida Pavicevic, HOFA Gallery is renowned for its dedication to showcasing contemporary art from both well-established and emerging artists globally. The gallery’s founders express their enthusiasm for Chung’s showcase during the Art Week Hong Kong and K11 Art Karnival, celebrating it as a milestone in human-machine collaborative artistry and a testament to the transformative potential of technology in expanding artistic expression and innovation.

Complementing the exhibition at K11 MUSEA, Chung is set to introduce “GENESIS” at the prestigious Soho House in Hong Kong. This continuation of her exploration into the evolution of the drawn line and robotic forms starts with speculative machine designs inspired by life forms. Through a custom VR process, these “GENESIS” forms are shaped and translated into movement data, setting the stage for a new AI system designed to further pioneer the fusion of human creativity and machine collaboration.
