Frog King’s Totem Exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane

Frog King Totem Exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane
By   /  October 9, 2014

10 Chancery Lane is running a solo exhibition by renowned local artist Frog King (a.k.a. Kwok Mang-ho). Frog King is a pioneering conceptual and performance artist who has been breaking boundaries in Hong Kong and beyond since the late 1960s. The artist explores the use of ink painting as a conceptual tool, incorporating it as both action and material into multiple-media installations, performances, happenings and assembled environments that incorporate discards and everyday objects.

Titled Totem, the exhibition includes a new series of carved wood sculptures, totemic columns, ink paintings and screens, where the artist transforms the exterior and interior spaces of the gallery to create a multi-layered environment that unveils his expressive life.
