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.

Karin Weber Gallery is exhibiting at AAF Hamburg, taking place at Hamburg Messe u. Congres from November 10th to November 13th. Established in 1999 by German-born Karin Weber and now in its 16th year, Karin Weber Gallery is one of Hong Kong’s oldest contemporary art galleries. Small in size, yet global in outlook, Karin Weber Gallery is one of Hong Kong’s truly international boutique galleries thanks to a unique network of partners based in London, Mumbai and Berlin that allows them to serve clients and source the most exciting emerging and established contemporary art from almost all over the world.

About Brainrental’s ‘Ordinary Behaviour’

‘Ordinary Behavior’ explores the uncanny relationship between human and technology in an everyday context. We have created a set of illustrative objects to reveal these absurd situations. They are all made of paper cardboard and appear to be electronic appliances and gadgets that can easily be found in our daily living space, however, their interiors are modified into miniaturized human scaled space. We hope to isolate the audience from the real world temporarily, and provide a space for them to rethink and reconsider the way we behave, and ultimately, think about the relationship between ourselves, objects and the environment with technology in a more conscious way.

 

Karin Weber Gallery presents Paperscapes, New Works by Stephen Wong Chun Hei and Eric Fok

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Karin Weber Gallery is excited to present a new gallery collaboration with a Hong Kong and a Macau artist in the upcoming show ‘Paperscapes’: New Works by Stephen Wong Chun Hei and Eric Fok (one of whose works is shown here courtesy of the artist and the Karin Weber Gallery). Paper transforms into the perfect backdrop for the artists’ flights of the imagination across mythical mountain – and cityscapes.

‘Paperscapes’ created by both artists may be surreal, yet elements that appear warmly familiar to the viewer appear in each work. An intriguing blend of the local, the rooted, and the everyday are juxtaposed with the dreamy and fantastical in works inspired by the past, yet inspired by the minds of their creators. The fantastical nature of the show is enhanced by the miniature sizing of many of the paintings, introducing greater complexity while demanding even greater craftsmanship.

About the artists

Stephen Wong Chun Hei (b. 1986)

Stephen obtained his BA in Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008 and has since worked from his studio space in Fo Tan. Inspiration for his early work initially came from video games; now, the mountain subject plays a significant role in his work, which is frequently created ‘en plein air’ while hiking the Hong Kong hillside. As he shares, “a new mountain is created everyday in my imagination.” Stephen Wong has shown extensively in Hong Kong. His works are held in numerous private collections in Hong Kong and Asia.

Eric Fok (b. 1990)

A visual arts graduate from the Macao Polytechnic Institute, Eric Fok lives and works in Macao. His paperscapes are a unique blend of tradition and modernity. Using a technical pen and paper that is aged using tea, he integrates ancient maps with modern constructions. Eric had his first solo exhibition in Portugal in 2014 but has participated in several group shows in Macao, Hong Kong, London and Singapore over the past seven years. His works form part of several prestigious public collections including the Macau Government Headquarters (Governor’s Palace), Cultural Affairs Bureau of the Macau S.A.R., Oriental Foundation, Macau Museum of Art, The Orient Museum (Portugal), University Museum and Art Gallery (HKU), and private collections in Italy, Las Vegas (U.S.A.), United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macao.
