Important works by Roberto Chabet will be exhibited at Osage Gallery Hong Kong from March 15 2016 to March 29 2016.
AU Hoi Lam: Memorandum: Memorandum comprises a series of new paintings and mixed media works embodying exercises in states of reminiscence and oblivion, based on the artist’s ruminations over minute trivialities. The paintings, mixed media work and objects are likened to notebooks that have been written in and over, or like a tableau waiting to be filled with drawings.
Roberto Chabet: Cargo and Decoy. Cargo and Decoy is large-scale plywood installation created by Roberto. This artwork is colored by the artist’s experience during WWII. The material choice of plywood is significant as it emblematizes reconstruction. Plywood’s ability to flip-flop between being a surface and object is also fully embraced by Chabet to suggest the problematic representation of art.
Tintin Wulia: Five Tonnes of Homes and Other Understories: Tintin Wulia’s Five Tonnes of Homes and Other Understories is a new large scale multi-media installation. The work is an artefact of the artist’s year-long intervention into the informal micro-economy of the cardboard recycling network in Central, Hong Kong. Under the canopy of a vast and globalised industry of cardboard recycling, the artist’s intervention bends light onto a local uniqueness of this particular recycling network.Tintin’s Film Within the Leaves, a Sight of the Forest will be screening on 23 March 3 pm, agnès b. Cinema Hong Kong Arts Centre.
