SerendiCity: Mak2 – Hong Kong’s Next Top Artist (Episode 1)
Mak2 invites amateur artist Foor to participate in the reality show "Hong Kong’s Next Top Artist", and visits Foor’s apartment to learn more about him.
Hong Kong-based conceptual artist Mak2 crafts aesthetic experiences bound by humour and intense inquisitiveness. Her work contemplates 21st-century issues through the study of philosophy, art history, culture, shifting socio-political environments, the internet and new technology. Mak’s creations ranges from installations, paintings, drawings, moving image pieces and youtube videos to stand-up comedy routines. In 2022, she was second runner up at the Million Dollar Mic x Hall of Laughs Cantonese stand-up comedy new talent competition.
Foor is a stand-up comedian and amateur artist. After encountering Mak2 at a stand-up comedy competition, he begs Mak2 to introduce him to the mysterious art scene when he knew Mak2 is looking for an amateur to develop to an artist. Hong Kong’s Next Top Artist is a web series in which Mak2 invites different parties from the art sector, including artists, curators, professionals and gallerists, to turn Foor into a professional artist.
The development and creation of Hong Kong’s Next Top Artist was supported through a three-month artist residency programme initiated as part of SerendiCity – a media arts festival showcasing new perspectives on art, urban environments, people and technology.
The Programme is part of “Creative Tomorrow” exclusively sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club.
