Ora-Ora is pleased to present Lagom, a group exhibition that will feature works by gallery artists Chan Keng Tin, Huang Dan, Erik Jeor, Liu Qi, Cindy Ng, Patrick Nilsson, Wong Hau Kwei and Zhang Yanzi. Stemming from diverse cultural backgrounds, these artists are unitedly able to display the sensation of balance through contemporary landscapes. The exhibition will be on view from October 29 to November 18, 2020.
The show draws its inspiration from the Swedish term “lagom”, which translates as “the perfect measure of contentment and moderation”, a cultural understanding that applies across all aspects of life. This is an idea that balance coexists across cultures and religions. Similarly, a notable Chinese idiom, “中庸之道” (zhōng yōng zhī dào), embodies the same concept seamlessly. A fundamental element of Chinese culture is the belief in no extremes, to be in the perfect middle and not strive for extravagances. This philosophy of life has rooted itself in the minds of millions worldwide, influencing how one would express oneself and is conscious of overconsumption. The artists presented in this exhibition are no exceptions; we can see how this theory shapes their artistic creations by the choice of minimal representation of details. Through admiring the presented works, one will see how these artists articulate their individual ideas while stripping away excess information, which is deemed unnecessary.
