Qin Qi “Fragrance of the Night”

Date: 26 April, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tang Contemporary Art is thrilled to present “Fragrance of the Night”, an exhibition by Chinese contemporary artist Qin Qi, marking the artist’s debut solo presentation in Hong Kong and his second solo show with the gallery. Curated by Cui Cancan, the exhibition will focus on the artist’s fascination with colonial history and exotic lands. “Fragrance of the Night” was released in the 1940s. It was thought to be an “anesthetic” song for the people in the enemy-occupied territory and regarded as decadent music. The song became widely popular, with nearly a hundred covers performed by many singers.

Claire Deniau | All that glitter is gold · 閃閃金光

by Claire Deniau

Date: 2 May, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Opening Reception | 9 May (Thu) 6 - 8:30 pm (Artist in attendance) Galerie KOO is delighted to present "All that glitter is gold" by Claire Deniau. Originally, gold is a rare, precious, and divine material, reserved for worship and an emblem of wealth. These qualities are still relevant today, even though gold has also become a tool for consumption. This exhibition presents a series of paintings where the subtle intervention of gold suggests a simple question: can gold still sublimate painting? In other words, does it retain its original meaning by elevating the work from noble to pure, or does it act as a mere enhancement ornament? 雍廷序畫廊誠意呈獻 Claire Deniau 的個展「閃閃金光」。黃金是一種稀有的,珍貴的,神聖的材料,專供崇拜和財富...

The painter and sculptor Pierre Soulages is one of France's most important artists, with an impressive career spanning over seven decades. He is known as a master of post-war abstraction, leader of Tachisme (the French counterpart to Action painting in the United States), and "the painter of black," owing to the hue's unique properties as both a colour and a non-colour, and ability to represent the natural, opposing forces of order and disorder. Soulages has said, "My ... Read more
