This film is a short documentary of the solo exhibition Metamorphosis or Confrontation of the German artist Tobias Klein at the Hong Kong University Museum and Art Gallery. The documentary is structured as the exhibition in four parts with an introduction. Bones, Masks, Mutations, and Forces are the chapters and provide a detailed insight into the various curatorial strategies – making the diversity in the artist’s work visible. A chamber of curiosities, an experience in a virtual environment, different aspects of mutations and the juxtaposition of traditional Chinese and digital craftsmanship are the components of this exhibition and its documentation.
