‘Then is Now’ is an introductory presentation of Emily Allchurch’s work, showcasing her iconic piece ’Babel London (after Bruegel)’ alongside examples of her internationally acclaimed and more Asia-focused series ‘Tokyo Story’.

The exhibition also marks the kick-off of an exciting Hong Kong based project, entitled ‘Babel Hong Kong.’ Emily will be spending time in and around Hong Kong in November, researching locations and gathering photographic material. This will provide the basis for a specially produced artwork depicting the essence of the city of Hong Kong, inspired by the tradition of Chinese old master painting. The ‘Babel Hong Kong’ piece will then be launched back in Hong Kong at the end of March 2018.

For this project, Allchurch has been awarded an Artists’ International Development Fund Award from Arts Council England and the British Council.

About the Artist:

Born in Jersey, Channel Islands, UK, Emily Allchurch first specialised in sculpture before developing her unique approach to reimagining historical artworks in a contemporary photo-collage style. She shows regularly across the UK and internationally, and has just exhibited two pieces at the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2017 in London. Having made her Asian debut with her ‘Tokyo Story’ series’ in 2013, this is Emily’s first presentation in Hong Kong.

Her work is in the permanent collections of the Tokaido Hiroshige Museum, Japan; Minneapolis Museum of Arts, USA; Manchester Art Gallery, UK; Nouveau Musée National de Monaco; States of Jersey, Channel Islands, UK and the Alberta College of Art and Design, Calgary, Canada. Corporate collections include the Financial Conduct Authority, Unilever, Morgan Stanley, Schroders and Rathbones in London, and Fidelity International in Tokyo.

Emily holds an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London and lives and works in Hastings and London, UK.

Liu Feng’s ‘Stalker’, a new exhibition at Karin Weber Gallery in June

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Liu Feng’s latest solo exhibition, Stalker, will open at the Karin Weber Gallery, Hong Kong, on June 7, 2017. Highlights of the show will be recent paintings and sculptural works.

Liu Feng’s new works show a world of prowlers and chance meetings. His pleasure at mingling the mundane and the dream in early works is no longer as prominent, fate is now an existence that is heavy, yet has to be viewed with a sense of lightness. The flashing appearance of evocative sceneries and objects (horizon, fields, rivers, horses, valleys, trees, fruits, flowers, confinements and flying fish) results in a changing montage of sceneries that entails a reversal of time and the essence of fantasy in its wildest form. This is an extremely personal, visual, natural and poetic confluence, fusing the subjects and their thoughts in stills with their realities, memories and dreams.

Karin Weber Gallery presents ‘Yangon Made My Heart Beat Fast” New Contemporary Art from Myanmar from 17 February to 30 March, 2017, a show which explores the blossoming of individual expression, creativity, and the emergence of new voices and viewpoints in an evolving Myanmar. As newfound freedom engulfs the Burmese capital, change occurs at a breathtaking pace.
The exhibition features work by eight of Myanmar’s most compelling experimental artists working across a range of media, including painting, performance, and photography. The artists – Htein Lin, Aung Khaing, Chan Aye, Phyu Mon, Zun Ei Phyu, Thynn Lei Nwe, Myint San Myint, and Khin Thethtar Latt (Nora) – represent multiple generations of artists who share a common interest in working on subject matter and formats outside the realist schools of art favored by the previous military governments. These artists operated on the perimeter of the traditional gallery scene where they carved out a space for themselves as modern artists amid cultural preferences for the traditional.
