My favourite place to relax in Hong Kong is…
Shek O—the short trek to the south side of the island is truly magical, like stepping through a wormhole and popping out in a sleepy beach village, coconut in hand.
The art world in Hong Kong is different because…
Of its recent rise to the status of an internationally viable art hub. As a result, the art world is much more scrappy, much more self-directed, and much less entitled than that of most other cities of its size.
The best place for a private view in Hong Kong is…
Probably in a warehouse in Wong Chuk Hang.
Art fairs are important because…
They provide local artists with a view of the art being made in the rest of the world, and the rest of the world with a view of the art that's being made here.
Living here makes me feel…
Manic—but in a good way.
I last cooked for…
My fiancée and our two pet rabbits.
