Sculpture, Hong Kong Museum of Art

(viewed 2007 times)
I'm embarrassed to say that I can't remember the title or the person responsible for this, but its title was something to do with dialogues. Twenty or so cut-out metal figures, all with small wooden sticks tied to them. Viewers are encouraged to bang the figures with the sticks, thus producing a dialogue between the figures, and a dialogue between the viewer and the artwork. Or summat like that.
