Rescued from Art Basel, Landscapes by Andrew Luk and Chu Teh-chun
Why We Recommend it
Shifting Landscapes showcases contrasting landscapes by Hong Kong artist Andrew Luk and Chinese-French painter Chu Teh-chun, originally intended for the cancelled Art Basel Hong Kong 2020.
De Sarthe presents Shifting Landscapes, an exhibition of artwork by the contemporary Hong Kong-based artist Andrew Luk and the post-war Chinese-French master Chu Teh-chun. The artworks were intended for the Encounters sector and Galleries sector respectively at the cancelled Art Basel Hong Kong 2020.
Redeveloped for the gallery space, Luk’s large-scale installation Haunted, Salvaged is a floating, imaginary representation of an urban landscape filled with human-induced contamination. Constructed using layers of carved and corroded polystyrene, the installation also comprises Walkmans and Gameboy – recently-antiquated devices are now remnants of civilisation.
On the other side of the gallery, Chu’s broad, expressive brush strokes elicit vast, unexplored landscapes that are rooted in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. Chu’s poetic artwork is immersed in the core of nature and landscape while remaining true to abstraction.
