Venue:The Regent’s Park
VIP preview: 12 – 13 October
Public days: 14 – 16 October
Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present “Garden Cruising: that camouflage”, a solo presentation of Trevor Yeung at Frieze Focus. Yeung combines works from different stages of his practice, including the large-scale site-specific spatial installation Between Water (2019), which suspends mid-air at eye-level and orderly grid of 25 cups of water, their in-between spaces viewers must carefully navigate to experience the art fair booth. Other works consist of readymade assemblage objects of Cacti series (2016-present), lighting installation the Night Mushroom Colon series (2020-present), and his Enigma and Garden Cruising photographic installations series.
Like a sentence taken apart and recombined, Yeung constructs an intimate semiotics of desire, creating a space where artworks become metaphors and signifiers for the emancipation of everyday aspirations towards human relationships. In this matrix of relational spaces, desiring objects, and natural imageries, human and non-human actors are immersed into a structure thoughtfully orchestrated by the artist. Yeung’s “Garden Cruising” allows for meaningful interaction and connection, but only in a certain way.
