MAP OFFICE
Laurent Gutierrez, b. 1966, Casablanca; Valérie Portefaix, b. 1969, Saint-Etienne, France. Live and work in Hong Kong.

Map Office is a multidisciplinary platform devised by an artist/architect duo, who have been based in Hong Kong since 1996, working on physical and imaginary spaces using a variety of mediums such as drawing, photography, film, installations, performance, and literary texts. Their entire project forms a critique of spatio-temporal anomalies and documents how human beings subvert and appropriate space. Humour, games and fiction are also part of their approach, in the form of small publications providing a further format for disseminating their work.

Since the Stars (XING XING, in Chinese) Exhibition of 1979 there have been many moments of struggle for artists in China. A struggle to express themselves through art during times of open attitude and times of closing, traditional thinking and changing times. This exhibition brings together 17 artists’ works that contribute to the ongoing discussion on artistic freedom and expression in China and beyond its borders.

A person went missing, this time an artist. It seems distant and is easy for us to just ignore it and accept it as another case of disappearance in China and move on…but can we?
