Para Site is pleased to present Sticky Fingers an exhibition featuring works in a variety of media, including drawing, photography, installation, performance, and video by artists from Hong Kong and overseas.

This exhibition of various media by artists from Hong Kong and abroad wishes to frame notions of globalization and the ‘other’ through investigations of lust and desire. Sticky Fingers attempts to re-route these urgent discussions through a more accessible point of engagement. By using lust and desire as a familiar condition whose end product is often culturally determined offers a more subtle and immediate channel for examining global relations today.

Sticky Fingers is co-curated by Sanford Biggers (US) and Elaine Ng (HK/US).
