Large Format, Small Space: Guest Curated By Boogie

Woogie Photography

(8 August – 13 October, 2020)

Press Release

Pékin Fine Arts is pleased to host the 1st group exhibition guest curated by Boogie

Woogie Photography, a Hong Kong based art advisory duo co-founded by

Vanessa Franklin and Xavier Mahe.

Large Format, Small Space includes works by Raymond Cauchetier (b. 1920

France), Pieter Hugo (b. 1976 Johannesburg, So. Africa), Billy Monk (b. So. Africa,

1937 – 1982, Takeshi Shikama (b. 1948 Tokyo) and Zhang Dali (b. 1962 Harbin,

China).

For Immediate Release:

We watch, as audiences confront large format artwork; their stance differs from

small format artwork viewing: Large format artwork occupies space inversely,

enveloping the viewer with emotion, like a window to the world.

No longer for public space only, large format artworks are increasingly squeezed

into personal space, disregarding conventional wisdom of framing and hanging.

In truth, large format artwork may not always “match” the sofa nor fit the décor.

“Large Format, Small Space” embraces the ironic reality of our small space living

in Hong Kong; celebrating artists’ refusal to capitulate to the confines of the small

space. Large format artists, fully aware of the physical constraints of Hong Kong

urban living, nonetheless insist on opening our minds to a world stretching

beyond our borders, to infinite skies, limitless emotions, and exuberant moments

of boundless creativity. We invite visitors to re-imagine scale and proportion and

living with art.
