Opening: 29.9.2021 18:00 - 20:00

Exhibition period: 30.9 - 23.10.2021

Venue: Osage, 4F, 20 Hing Yip St, Kwun Tong

In the exhibition Dropped, Hong Kong based British artist Louis Nixon presents recent related and ongoing projects that explore through sculpture and film, how objects behave in gravity both in space and on earth, and how they drift, float and fall. Dropped brings together four related works that explore themes of gravity, space, motion and matter which have been consistent components of Nixon’s work for more than thirty years since his experience making a telescope as a sculpture student at the Slade in 1989.

Tai Kwun: LEUNG MEE PING

Poetic Heritage

Exhibition period: 02.09 - 21.11.2021

Venue: Tai Kwun JC Contemporary

梁美萍 Leung Mee-ping
Sound of Silence
2021
Mixed-media installation
Commissioned by Tai Kwun Contemporary 

In this installation, Leung Mee-ping uses aged roof tiles to explore themes of attachment and rootedness to a place. The artist collected long-disused tiles from places where old traditional village houses with tiled roofs and grey brick walls still stand. While these tiles originally served the purpose of providing protection from the elements for the inhabitants, here they are reinterpreted as a documentary heritage of their era. The hammering devices they are now equipped with generate a dribbling sound—for the artist, like a heap of broken thoughts
