George Fok is a Hongkongese and Canadian video artist living in Montréal. Creative director at the PHI Centre, his work at the intersection of visual arts, music, and fashion has been presented in cultural institutions around the world, such as the Musée d’art contemporain in Montréal, the GL Strand and Nikolaj Kunsthal in Copenhagen, and New York’s Jewish Museum. His rejection of disciplinary boundaries allows him to look more closely at the plastic nature of images and create new opportunities for representation.

Description

Two-channel video installation, 33 mins

A long-form immersive poem in five parts, via sounds and colors, where the audience can congregate for introspection and self-reflection. Seeking Stillness is inspired by Carlo Rovelli’s “thermal time hypothesis,” the Rothko Chapel, and by the transcendental experience of the artist’s long winter runs. Some claim that art galleries are the new cathedrals: a place visited to unwind in the era of hyperconnectivity. From this exceptionally visceral experience emanates a pursuit of solace, a meditative and therapeutic moment.
