So long, thanks again for the fish is the first group exhibition of Hong Kong artists in Finland and coincides with the inaugural Helsinki Biennial. The show features new commissions by Luke Ching Chin Wai, Christopher K. Ho, Lam Tung Pang, Cédric Maridet, and Angela Su. Curated by Yeewan Koon, this exhibition explores the theme of contaminations as imperfect encounters and broken chains of relations in a world on the verge of reboot. Working with the architectural studio COLLECTIVE, the artists respond to the historical workshop of Levyhalli on the fortress island of Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
