Nylonkong Dreams is the first solo exhibition by Pascale Marthine Tayou in Hong Kong.Tayou, an installation artist of Cameroon descent, is currently based in Ghent, Belgium. He first came to prominence for his participation in Documenta 11 in 2002 and the Venice Biennale in 2009.

 

Nylonkong, shorthand for New York, London and Hong Kong, refers to the three leading financial centres of the world that all share similar economic and cultural traits. For Tayou, these metropolises signify the crossroads for our civilization whereby many personal dreams can be realized. This boundless idealism in fact sets the pace for other cities to follow. If the growth of these global cities is dependent on their ability to exert greater economic control over a larger geographic spread, whose city is it becoming? Does the majority of the population situated outside of this economic equation have any real influence on the future of where they live?
