Review: Love Simply
Until 18 January
Fo Tan's current open studio weekends allow visitors to discover artist studios, small ad-hoc shows, video installations and exhibitions. Love Simply is one of the better group shows, organised by recent art graduate Tang Kwok-hin, an up-and-coming artist.
The exhibition has the feel of the film Love Actually, in which storylines intersect. Likewise, the four artists, who studied together, unconsciously overlap.
Gwen Chung Chin-man's paintings form a wall diary of words and images that document the pain of breaking up with a boyfriend. Lui Long-tin's The Kiss of Metaphysics (pictured) uses her own orthodontic treatment. Lui argues that being attractive will allow mankind to continue. Michael Lee Hong-hwee offers a cerebral exploration in Foundations: the Consolations of Museology. Lastly, Tang exhibits a photograph of filial tradition.
