[Online] Redux: Five Visual Artists Come Together at 1a Space in the Midst of Lockdown
Why We Recommend it
The latest show at 1a space features artworks from five emerging artists whose contrasting cultural backgrounds infuse their pieces with a range of concepts that reflect on the human condition.
Our daily lives have been affected so severely by the Covid-19 pandemic that even our sense of time and space seemed to be suspended within a vacuum of idleness. Yet these times of solitude have become a source of contemplation for artists and prompted them to convey their thoughts through artworks.
1a space is looking to explore the relationship between art and our own existence through Redux, a group exhibition that features the works of five emerging artists who are all graduates from the Hong Kong Art School and the RMIT Master of Fine Arts programme. The artists participating in this exhibition include Hong Kong artists Dorothy Lau Gwan-tung and Karen Wong, American artist Brian Smeets, and South African artist Louise Folliott. The artists will showcase works that encompass a range of themes including self-identity, entropic disorder, and travelling through image and sound.
Due to the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong, Redux will be temporarily closed and all public programmes will be postponed. However, 1a space has prepared an online virtual tour of the exhibition here. Additionally, an online guided tour by the artists and artist talk will be held this Sunday, July 26 at 4pm on Zoom. More details can be found on 1a space’s Instagram and Facebook pages.
