About “How” by Zhao Zhao

Zhao Zhao (b. 1982) has captured significant attention from the art world in recent years. His works vary from installation, to performance, painting and photography. Keeping a distance from prevalent art concepts and the market, Zhao Zhao presents a younger generation’s thoguhts on the reality of contmeporary China through his emtional and persoanl experience of life. His first solo show in Hong Kong exhibits his newest site-specific installation, which invites audiences to contemplate themes of value, animism, and superstitution.

About “Spring & Autumn” by Shao Yinong & Muchen

Using the refined technique of traditional Suzhou embroidery, the works create highly detailed yet fragile images – These currencies have become symbols of certain periods in history representing the power and beliefs of political regimes and economic powers which once prevailed but whose time has now well-passed. This series of works have been ten years in the making and have been meticulously created by Suzhou’s most expert embroiderers on sheaths of transparent black silk lending them strength of imagery on an ephemeral and fleeting backdrop.
