Selected Exhibitions

Whence it comes - A solo exhibition by Jacky Cheung

Hong Kong Open Printshop
24.02.2019 - 10.03.2019

The impetus of Jacky Cheung Tsz-ki's first solo exhibition Whence it comes springs from his fascination with ambiguity. Marked by its elusiveness and Tranquility, his art engenders a mode of viewing that focuses on prolonged contemplation and individual reflection. Viewing his works is much like gazing at the ocean: instead of finding out what the waters look like, one lets their eyes idle on the calm sea. details

The Sea Keeps Burning
01.04.2020 - 25.04.2020

"Look! The sea is burning."

Fire incinerates, while the sea endures. Fireworks are still being set off as waves continue to ebb and flow. They counter each other from sunrise to moonset, and until apocalypse. Even when absurdity occurs every day, the world carries on as usual.

Sadness, pain, anxiety and anger are probably what we have experienced collectively over the past months. Lucky are those who can put their emotions in words unambiguously, because most people are filled with inexplicable thoughts and involuntary silence. details

The selected artworks in the exhibition range from the 1940s to 2020, showcasing prints by masters and some of the latest creations by young artists. Through these works, visitors will look into how the concepts of print art overlap with new media, such as computer animation, 3D printing, and augmented reality, and appreciate how printmaking techniques can be applied to creative works, like illustration, design, zines, and other cultural products.
