(An)other-Half is not a celebration of or a grumble against marriage and motherhood, but an introspection by six artists with their roles of being a wife and/or a mother.

:: Hong Kong : Osage at Art Basel Hong Kong 2017 : 23.03.2017 – 25.03.2017

Osage Gallery will take part again in the Insights, Encounters, Film and Salon sectors in Art Basel Hong Kong 2017 from March 21, 2017 to March 25, 2017. From fetishizing horror and beauty to contemplating anxiety and morality, this carefully curated collection ranging from installations to documentations aims to provoke and undermine the sensibilities of viewers. At times dark and on occasion satirical, these powerful and provoking works by the most current Chinese artists present for us a celebration of the fragility and volatility of the human condition.


Insights | Booth 3D39 | Jiang Zhi, Shen Shaomin and Zhao Zhao
Trembling, Twisting, Testing…three Chinese artists outline mechanisms of power and control t...hrough making visible moments of the very opposite – instances of slippages, outbursts of transgression and situations that spiral out of control. In these moments, we are witnesses to vulnerability, to the unspoken rules of daily life, and to possibilities of existing beyond these rules.

Encounters | Booth 1E06 | Shen Shaomin
The project Summit (2009-2010) takes as its starting point a hypothetical meeting of the most significant Communist leaders in history: Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il Sung, Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro. Apart from Castro, who lies faintly breathing and speechless, the leaders lie in coffins, making the summit of these once vociferous leaders a silent one. At a time when the whole world is drawn into the vortex of economic crisis, and doubt has emerged about the values inherent in Capitalism, the work poses the questions: are the ideas and ideals of these long-gone socialist vanguards still relevant? Will their ideas, concepts and theories on Capitalism and Socialism merge to reflect our sensibilities someday?

Film | Theatre 2, HKCEC | Shen Shaomin
[The film, I am Chinese,…] is an edited slice of life of a small group of neglected people who are both forgotten and unrecognized in China. Taking the form of an over one hour-long documentary video, the camera, like a fly on the wall, chronicles the daily routines of ethnic Russians living on the edge, whose ancestors during the First World War crossed the Chinese border on the Heilongjiang River to settle in Hongjiang, a small farming village of 30 square kilometers. ----- David Elliot

March 23, 12:30pm, 74'
