Samson Young on Songs for Disaster Relief

November 2nd, 2017 · Comments

Today, we take you to Venice, Italy, to meet Hong Kong artist and composer Samson Young. He tells the stories behind Songs for Disaster Relief, his creation for the Hong Kong Pavilion at the 57th Venice Art Biennale. Fake news, meta fiction, politics, pop music and philanthropy are all at play in the multi-part installation that begins in the courtyard. The pavilion’s inter-connected environments mock the music industry’s imperialist history of do-good songs while expressing appreciation for the effort and exposing the artist's drive to find real caring for the Other in today's xenophobic world.
