Hanart TZ Gallery is pleased to present the experimental Guangzhou art collective BOLOHO, and their latest project BOLOHOPE (in collaboration with “Reading Room”), as featured in Documenta fifteen, and also introduce their new body of work.
BOLOHO will transform Hanart’s gallery space into a living room and Hong Kong-style cafe (cha chaan teng 茶餐廳), with an environment built from collectively produced paintings, texts, sewing, installation, and even a series of mini-sitcoms.
In its bright and cleverly managed chaos, BOLOHOPE reflects the cultural imagination of this generation of Guangzhou youth, which is interwoven with the memory of Hong Kong media and urban culture of the 2000s—the result of an early open policy between China and Hong Kong which privileged Guangdong before the opening of the rest of China.
In March 2023, BOLOHO also will present two site-specific live performances at Hanart TZ Gallery during the Art Basel Hong Kong period.
Performance programme to be announced on Hanart’s website and social media. Please stay tuned!
