gb agency, Paris
January 9 - February 27, 2021
Pak Sheung Chuen, one of Hong Kong’s most respected artists, presents his third solo exhibition at gb agency. His work reflects upon the contemporary metropolis through personal observations and conceptual engagement with everyday life in the city and on the conflict between an ideal world and reality, which he tries to address with poetic solutions that strive to merge both worlds. Under the pandemic situation, travelling has become impossible. Instead of sending artworks for installation, the artist sent 12 instruction pieces to the gallery. Following these rules and instructions, the artworks – which focus on the horizontal and vertical line, the square, the circle, and the current situation in Hong Kong – were made without the restrictions of distance.
