1. <CHUN KWANG-YOUNG>
Solo exhibition of the renowned Korean artist, Chun Kwang-Young. Chun is known for his sculptural assemblages – both freestanding pieces and wall-hung low reliefs – his sculptures create the illusion of depth and coalescence and, ultimately, represent the harmony and conflict in the unity of many. Chun began his career as a painter, yet inspired by childhood memories of clusters of Chinese medicine packages, wrapped in mulberry paper and hung from the ceiling at the clinic, Chun began experimenting with this material in his works in the 90s, deeply imbuing them with distinctly Korean connotations and sensibilities.
2. <Tai Xiangzhou & Zhang Yirong: One with the Universe>
A joint exhibition of two celebrated young ink artists, Tai Xiangzhou and Zhang Yirong. The show features Tai’s ethereal landscape paintings compose of misty monochromatic shades of grey leading us to question whether we see the whole picture or only a microcosm of the whole Universe; and Zhang’s larger than life meticulous paintings of flowers and butterflies conveying inner strength and beauty. With this new body of work, the husband and wife duo seek to explore the relationship between heaven and earth.
3. <SUMMER GROUP SHOW>
Featuring selected works by 4 photographers Zhang Kechun (China), Almond Chu (HK) and Vincent Fournier (Fr) and Cyril Delettre (Fr). “The Yellow River Series” by Zhang series was a quest to find the root of his soul along the Yellow River. “The Bride with White Hair” by Chu shows the tension and the pain of love. “The Space Project” by Fournier captures the blurry line between reality and dream. His photos were taken in space stations including the ones in China, Russia, Chile, Mexico, USA and Norway. Delettre’s depiction of the Hong Kong Peak from a typical postcard angle, yet with a twist, results in a timeless representation of this landmark.
