About

In Trevor Yeung: Courtyard of Attachments, Hong Kong in Venice, Trevor Yeung explores personal experiences and observations of the relationships between humans and aquatic ecosystems. He draws from references that include his father’s seafood restaurant, pet shops, feng shui arrangements, and his childhood pet fish companions. In landscapes of fishless aquariums, Yeung places longing, desire, and power on display. His works contemplate absence and attachment as a way to comment on the systems that structure our lives while alluding to the current climate crisis. The exhibition invites us to consider the emotional disconnect and power dynamics that characterise society today.

This exhibition marks the sixth collaboration between M+ and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council for Hong Kong’s presence in Venice. As with previous editions, the Venice presentation of Yeung’s work will be shown in Hong Kong in an adapted exhibition at M+ in 2025.
