The fifth Audemars Piguet Art Commission, by Hong Kong artist Phoebe Hui, has been unveiled at the Tai Kwun Center in Hong Kong, ahead of Art Basel, with Ying Kwok serving as guest curator. Responding to the commission’s theme of complexity and precision, the installation is titled The Moon is Leaving Us, because the Moon is slowly drifting away from the Earth. Its main part is an assembly of 48 screens which move in unison. Moving in front of each screen is a fragmentary image of the moon. Elsewhere in the space, a drawing robot, Selena, reconstructs the side of the moon we cannot see. Following the previous four commissions, Hui’s work demonstrates how art can help us negotiate the mysteries of the universe.
