Has anyone made a promise to themselves that 2011 is the year they will add a bit more culture to their life?
If so (or if you happen to already be a lover of the arts), then you won’t want to miss the Opening Reception of UK artist Jeffrey Robb’s OTHER SIDES exhibition that is being held at La-aL and Forest Bird this coming Friday. The reception goes from 6:30pm-9pm and the boutiques are located at G/F & 1/F, 39 Staunton Street, Central Hong Kong.
In collaboration with Jiang Art Gallery, Robb’s OTHER SIDES collection will transform the boutiques into mini galleries for opening night. The exhibition will then be displayed from 14-28 January and opening hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 12pm-8pm.
About the collection: OTHER SIDES is a new series that follows Jeffrey’s critically acclaimed Naked Singularity series from 2009. The bodies, painted white, seem remote and untouchable, like ghostly apparitions floating in velvety emptiness; but at the same time, they have a stillness and solidity reminiscent of stone or marble sculpture. They captured the unknown sides of human psychic processes, conscious and unconscious. The three dimensional film and photographic process enhances the sensation that before our eyes, the women appear to be turning into wraiths-drained of colour, gradually released from the forces of gravity, the figures are at a gateway, a threshold, and the viewer is witnessing this metamorphosis through the 3D image into another space, another realm.
