“Garden Cruising: It’s not that easy being green” by Trevor Yeung
Date: 15 – 17 March 2015
Venue: DISCOVERIES Booth 1C51, Hall 1, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

Blindspot Gallery is delighted to announce our participation in the DISCOVERIES section at Art|Basel Hong Kong this year at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 15-17 March 2015 with the exhibition “Garden Cruising: It’s not that easy being green”, featuring the photography-based work of Hong Kong artist Trevor Yeung. The showcase spotlights selections from an on-going series Sleepy Bed (2011-present) and new series Enigma (2015) and more, which encapsulate the artist’s drawing his creative impetus from everyday life. The exhibition invites thinking about the relationship between the viewer and an image, about the act of viewing, as well as transforming a one-way viewing experience of art into a participatory one.

Other on-site installations, which include movable plant pots and a plant wall, are rearranged daily during the exhibition period. The shifting shades of obstruction mark the constant re-creation of the visitor’s experience, which departs from the conventional mode of audience engagement with the artworks in an art fair.

Trevor Yeung will be present throughout the art fair. Interviews are welcome and can be arranged.

About Trevor Yeung
Born in 1988, Guangdong, China, Yeung graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University in 2010. Since 2010 Yeung has focused on his personal projects. Yeung’s practice uses botanic ecology, horticulture, photography and installations as metaphors that reference the emancipation of everyday aspirations towards human relationships. Yeung recently participated in Shanghai Biennale 2014 in China and a group exhibition at Witte de With in the Netherlands. He currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
