“Art is certainly happening right now in Hong Kong. This past Spring we saw record attendance and
turnover at art fairs and record breaking auction results.” remarked Show Director Mark Saunderson, “The recent opening of the Tai Kwun, the restored Central Police Station compound, provides Hong Kong with a series of new art and performance venues allowing people to enjoy and explore art in heritage and contemporary environments right in the middle of Central.”
Some of the art / artists the upcoming event will feature include:
Seong Taejin, an established artist from South Korea, known for his highly textured and brightly painted wood carvings.He carves hyper-textured wood panels before painting them in vibrant pastel and candy colors. Inspired by the titular character in the film, Robot Taekwon V, the central figure in his work is associated with and responds to a lost childhood and disillusionment with society, while the text carvings in the background is associated with the dissemination of the written word.
Aung Myint, one of the pioneers of performance and experimental art from Myanmar, known for his mother and child inspired drawings. Drawn with a single unbroken line of black acrylic, they evoke an intimate physical connection between the two figures.
Adeline Buenaventura is passionate about floral art. She worked as florist in Paris and Antibes, France before settling in Bangkok where she established atelier ‘Buenaventura Art Gallery’. Finding delight in color and graphics, Buenaventura is a self-taught abstract artist. She works on canvas and is recognized for her brightly-colored, voluptuous and cheerful round-shaped resin and fiberglass sculptures.
Katherine Filice, an American artist whose detailed drawings question the tension in human
relationships and social systems through surreal symbolism and a provocative style. Katherine made her international debut at ArtRooms London in 2018. She uses a point-of-departure approach, and a unique detailed drawing technique that can feel like you are looking at the “inside” of a structure both figuratively and literally.
