Ora-Ora is pleased to announce our participation in Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel, presenting a selection of new works by Chinese contemporary ink artist Xiao Xu and Finnish artist Juri Markkula. The fair will be on view from 27 to 30 November at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel is a showcase of Hong Kong galleries who have participated in Art Basel’s Asian show. Organised in collaboration with Fine Art Asia, this unique platform is a united response to support and bring together the city’s arts community during these challenging times.
Xiao’s repertoire has been described as a “revival of tradition” as he merges modernity with traditional Chinese techniques to produce contemporary traditional landscapes. These works present a continuation from the artist‘s solo show Streams of Eventide, which was held at Ora-Ora in 2018.
Juri Markkula brings together the industrial and technological. His reliefs of painted surfaces present multiple angles of natural beauty, a hybrid of the digital and physical world. He focuses on aspects of nature that are almost overlooked, or desensitised, in our everyday lives: fallen leaves, broken branches, twigs, stems and pieces of bark have been given importance, a focus on their delicateness, outline and shape.
