What Is the Sound of Failed Aspriations? Samson Young’s Songs For Disaster Relief

Volume 16, Number 5, September/October2017
by Yeewan Koon


Article Description

Yeewan Koon discusses the work of Samson Young, who represents Hong Kong at the 57th Venice Biennale, and who has created multifaceted installations addressing the dubious impact of “charity songs” meant to raise money for various disasters. She notes how the artist's work, in contradistinction to that of Tang Nannan, is contingent upon its complexity.
