Presenting Ray Chan’s ceramic works, Gabriel Leung’s mixed-media installations, and Stephen Wong’s series of paintings, “At the Still Point of the Turning World” is a depiction and materialisation of the artists’ personal means and journey of searching for the “still point” – a constant ritual, respite, or an oblique resolution in the face of chaos, crisis, or uncertainties of an ever-changing world.

“At the Still Point of the Turning World” is an exhibition of works by Hong Kong-based artists produced as part of “The Still Point” festival of art, faith and humanity, and in response to a traveling artistic collaboration entitled the QU4RTETS inspired by T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets. The phrase ‘at a still point of the turning world’ comes from Eliot’s first quartet “Burnt Norton”. Written during the ravages of WWII, the Four Quartets represents Eliot’s artistic excellence and personal expression of his vision derived from the Christian gospel message, in which the “still point” is where the human experience of time evokes wonder, fear and longing for continuance and redemption.
