Spring welcomes artist Aslı Çavuşoğlu to a residency at Spring in November and December 2013. During her residency, the artist will be mainly focusing on research, but will be giving one 45-minute talk entitled ’The Fragments that Resist the Story’ on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 12pm at Asia Art Archive’s A Space. There she will discuss the art of backward construction in her practice with a focus on chronicling the history of a murder, of art or of a nation. Please join us for this talk, which is part of an ongoing series of conversations held at AAA over a light lunch with artists visiting Hong Kong.
