Hanart TZ Gallery is showcasing the work of young Hong Kong artist Ho Sin Tung and Taiwanese Agi CHEN Yi-Chieh.
Ho Sin Tung’s work is themed ‘Icarus Shrugged’ which is a composite environment of seven conceptually complex works across a variety of media, from drawing and painting to video installation, to create a narrative fluctuation between the fictional and the real. Ho paints a picture of people’s attempts to escape the labyrinth of their own lives and to reach their idealised positioned only to fail like Icarus reaching for the sun and falling.
Agi Chen Yi-Chieh’s ‘Encoded Islands is an explosion of colourful cartoon landscapes and machine-made ‘Rotatory Portrait’ installations. The circles of concentric rings of colour are abstractions of cartoon heroes is child-like, simple and familiar. Agi has won numerous grants and awards and exhibited at Arcus Studio, Japan (2005), Loughborough University in the UK (2007); Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, Scotland (2013) and the Post-Pop: East Meets West’ exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery.
