Blindspot Gallery participates in “Asia Now: Paris Asian Art Fair 2016” featuring four Hong Kong artists: Leung Chi Wo, anothermountainman, Angela Su and Trevor Yeung.
Leung Chi Wo’s installation Silent Music Plane 1967 and lightbox Help! from the Music in 1967 series illustrate the artist’s preoccupation with the ambivalence of history, where pop tunes from China and The Beatles weave a faint sonic backdrop to images from the anti-colonial 1967 riots in Hong Kong. anothermountainman’s redwhiteblue vases are taken from his ongoing iconic series redwhiteblue, which he uses to represent the “positive spirit of Hong Kong”. A pair of hanging vases will be created for the artist’s participation in the fair.
Angela Su’s large-scale, black-and-white drawings and hair embroidery works revolve around the theme of biomorphic forms of plants, insects and human body, while contemplating the ideas of beauty, suffering of the physical body and freedom of the soul. Featured works from Trevor Yeung include a new Island installation from his Engima series, and two sculptures, Cacti and The Cute Thorn, which question one’s perception of reality by pinpointing the viewer’s selective understanding of things.
