Charbon, is the newest art space that’s set to open in Aberdeen on 19th of September to coincide with the annual South Island Art Day organised by the South Island Cultural District. The art space is spearheaded by Lalie Choffel, a French photographer and founder of Project Noir. (an art festival held last October, that combined art with theatre, dance, film and food).
Charbon is located on the 8th floor of the Sing Tek Factory and the converted 1,700 sq ft factory space will hold regular art and cultural exhibition, film screening, a co-working space for artists and creatives and a boutique, Cabinet of Curiosities which sells one-of-a-kind art and decorative objects sourced from Charbon’s travels.
The art space opens in September with the following line-up-
After 2000, Contemporary Art in China Book Launch, 19 September, 5-8pm – A talk and book launch by French art critic Caroline Ha Thuc about her book on 100 contemporary artists and how their work has evolved over the century in Asia.
Art Installation and Travelling Into Your Bookshelf Video Exhibition, 19 September, 12-8pm – An exhibition by Hong Kong artist Movana Chen who’s made a sculpture from 1,500 copies of Ha Thuc’s new book, After 2000 and a video display of a paper installation she made by knitting cut-off books donated by people she met during her travels.
