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...

Adel Abdessemed “Unlock”

Date: 25 March, 2019 | 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tang Contemporary Art is proud to present the first exhibition of Adel Abdessemed in Hong Kong, one of the most emblematic artists of his generation, with a new body of work, curated by the internationally known curator Jérôme Sans. Titled Unlock, the exhibition is an introspective journey into the rugged world of Adel Abdessemed. Embedded in political themes, the work of the Franco-Algerian artist is a response to the situation of the contemporary world crossed by all kinds of convulsive movements. Born in 1971 in Constantine, nine years after the end of the Algerian War of Independence, Adel Abdessemed left his homeland under dramatic circumstances in 1994. From drawing to installation, from sculpture to film, he is the author of a large formal repertory composed of mass media imag... Read more

She has always related to the purity of nature... Read more
