Pearl Lam Galleries is delighted to present Alchemist(s), a group exhibition featuring six artists, including Alan Kwan (b. 1990), Ni Zhiqi (b. 1957), Peter Peri (b.1971),Thukral and Tagra (b. 1976 & b. 1979) and Sara Tse (b. 1974).
Alchemist(s) examines the inherent potential of art and highlights the migration of art forms from one state to another. Like alchemists, the exhibiting artists all delve into their subconscious and question our reliance on conventional belief systems and institutional structures to give us meaning. On view is a wide variety of works ranging from painting, sculpture, video, installation, and virtual reality. They are juxtaposed to collectively consummate an experience of metaphysical transformation and to expose the objects’ indeterminate physical characteristics as simultaneous strength and vulnerability. Hence, the artworks on view function as psychoactive vehicles for viewers to pay closer attention to their hearts and souls and the contradictions of human fate.
