Miguel Chevalier is having his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong from October 9-19, at the Space. Entitled Digital Paradise, the exhibition features a large-scale digital installation of a virtual garden known as the Fractal Flowers series.
Born in Mexico and based in Paris, Miguel Chevalier is a pioneer of virtual and digital art and has focused exclusively on creating digital forms as an artistic means of expression since 1978. Fractal Flowers is an evolution of the artist’s work from Other Natures, large-scale intimate observations of the plant kingdom in digital form. The process of creating computer-created coloured plant forms is realised by the artist via a software program that forms “virtual seeds” that grow, mature, die, and get reborn – giving birth to an infinite variety of forms and landscapes in a generative virtual reality.
The exhibition is brought to you by Puerta Roja, a gallery that specializes in promoting Latin American art in the Asia Pacific.
Date: October 9-19, 2014.
Venue: Puerta Roja at The Space, 210 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
