Ora-Ora is pleased to present a solo show of new works by Korean artist Yi Yi Jeong-Eun, to take place in its Tai Kwun gallery in Hong Kong from 2 November to 10 December, 2023. The exhibition is titled: Alive, Alive, Oh! This is Yi Yi Jeong-Eun’s debut solo exhibition in Hong Kong, and first solo showing with Ora-Ora.
Speaking of Yi Yi Jeong-Eun’s new solo show, CEO and co-founder of Ora-Ora Dr. Henrietta Tsui-Leung said: “Yi Yi Jeong-eun gives painting a new dimension. She is mindfully seeing her world in a new and radical way, so that we begin to see our own world through her eyes. The horizon becomes full of freshness, colour and renewed optimism.”
Yi Yi Jeong-Eun’s artworks are imbued with the colourful energy of the scenery around her, and seek to radiate the joys, glories and transience of the natural world rather than seeking refuge in pure figurative description.
With words adopted from the Irish folk song Molly Malone, Alive, Alive, Oh! rings out with an embrace of being. As the artist expounds: “Nature is an object and location that allows me to most keenly sense the fact that I am one of the changing things… I realize that I too am alive when I watch clouds sail across the sky.”
