The Sigg Prize is a biennial award that recognises outstanding practices of artists born or working in the Greater China region. It is a platform to highlight and promote on an international scale the important work and discussions taking place here. For this inaugural edition, an international jury has selected six shortlisted artists to participate in the 希克獎2019 exhibition.
In conversation with the shortlisted artists, the M+ Shop developed a series of products that offer an alternative perspective on the work presented in the exhibition.
Shen Xin’s 夜鶯的挑釁 comprises four videos that address topics of gender, religion, science, and relationships. Inspired by his research-based practice, the M+ Shop created a series of products meant to encourage thinking about individual perception and experience.
Tao Hui’s video work draws from cinema and popular culture, and his installation 你好！盡頭 invokes the visual language of television melodramas while raising questions related to death, finality, and the end of time. The M+ Shop responds to Tao’s practice with a series of specially designed products.
