Para Site presents ‘Bicycle Thieves’, a group exhibition curated by writer and curator Hanlu Zhang, running from 29 June to 1 September 2019 at Para Site Hong Kong. ‘Bicycle Thieves’, named after the 1948 film by Vittorio De Sica, features 16 artists, and explores the fine line between sharing and stealing. Zhang in doing so, highlights the precarious status of the individual in relation to the increasingly complex institutions and systems in contemporary society. The exhibition considers and addresses labour conditions against the backdrop of technological development, economic transitions and political ambitions, to question the notion of ‘bicycle thieves’ in today’s world.
