MADSAKI: If I Had a Dream

by MADSAKI

Date: 17 July, 2019 | 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
Despite its title, Andy Warhol's 1965 underground film, My Hustler, is not, as far as I can tell, one of the many cinematic references in Stephen Chow's 2004 madcap action comedy, Kung Fu Hustle. Yet, the work of these two artists—Chow and Warhol—both make appearances in MADSAKI's latest exhibition, and the two films, as different as they are, help to define the logic which structures much of his work: that of the wannabe or hustler. The majority of MADSAKI’s latest exhibition consists of works inspired by Andy Warhol, along with a selection of paintings depicting stills from Hong Kong cinema classics like Kung Fu Hustle and Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood For Love. MADSAKI, like Warhol before him, is skilled in the art of the hustle, and knows a fellow hustler when he sees one. Thus... Read more

Ólafsfjörður

by Ling Pui Sze, Cheung Tsz Hin

Date: 18 July, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are delighted to present "Ólafsfjörður", an exhibition by Ling Pui Sze and Cheung Tsz Hin with a guest curator Chun Poon.  Located in the north of Iceland, Ólafsfjörður is a small town with a population of more than 800 residents.  Iceland may not be a familiar country to many local Hong Kong citizens. Therefore, probably even fewer of us are acquainted with Ólafsfjörður - perhaps not even able to pronounce the word. Iceland may give off a perception of being a cold and seclusive location, where some Jedi masters choose to meditate. Imagine that you were going to Iceland - what would you do?  Would you play with snow in the winter streets or graze the sheep in the summer meadow? For Ling Pui Sze and Cheung Tsz Hin, they participated in an artist residency program for a mo... Read more

Galerie Koo is delighted to present “Flowing Pace”, a DUO show by Sin Yuen and Livy Leung. 雍廷序畫廊誠意呈獻《靜・流動》,冼紈、 梁凱雅雙個展。 About the Exhibition Difference in live… environment… personality… influences one’s thoughts and deeds, affects one’s way of life, which leads us all into distinctive individuals.  In painting, this uniqueness became the tempo of painting, of composing one’s own style of painting.  The decisiveness and hesitation of each stroke was related to one’s personal experience, cognition, feelings and more… and as one finally fell with the individual rhythm… a unique art piece was born. Galerie Koo is delighted to present “Flowing Pace” –a duo show by Sin Yuen and Livy Leung , sharing their unique,... Read more
