WOAW Gallery & Case Studyo present SANDWORM by CHARLIE ROBERTS...
WOAW Gallery and  Case Studyo have worked together to present “Sandworm” an exhibition by American artist Charlie Roberts, which is now open from now till 19th july at WOAW Gallery at 5 Sun Street in Hong Kong. The show features various mediums: paintings and sculpture, resulting in a diverse and dynamic exhibition that draws on cultural and science fiction references. The title “Sandworm” is inspired by American science fiction novelist Frank Herbert's work "Dune" published in 1965. In his novel, Frank Herbert imagines a future on the planet Arrakis thousands of years later where a rare and holy drug named “Melange” is sought for by humanity. The usage of the drug allows the ability to predict the future and prolong life. The protagonist in the novel is determined to get his hands on “Melange”, however, is met by the gatekeeper of the treasure, the Sandworm. The giant Sandworm is able to detect any vibrations on the ground and will devour anyone in search of “Melange”. Therefore, the show titled "Sandstorm" takes its name from this reference: the gatekeeper to a highly prized magical drug. ...

"UNSCHEDULED" by Edouard Malingue Gallery...
As part of UNSCHEDULED, Edouard Malingue Gallery is presenting a booth featuring artist Chou Yu-Cheng (b. 1976, Taiwan). Chou Yu-Cheng’s practice builds, across multiple mediums, a subtle critique of mass media, institutions, and the mechanisms that produce them. A graduate from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and the research programme La Seine, Chou has gained international recognition for his dialectical interplay between the source and results of his creations. Through his selective conversations, Chou shapes a minimal yet deliberate set of intellectual and aesthetic tricks, which ultimately play on the properties of art, object and space. Organised by Hong Kong Art Gallery Association, UNSCHEDULED features 12 galleries each exhibiting solo presentations with a focus on modern and contemporary art that has a connection to Asia.   In light of the cancellation of the March art week, UNSCHEDULED strives to re-energise Hong Kong's art scene. Neither a traditional art fair, nor a museum exhibition, UNSCHEDULED is a platform for selling and networking that will present solo exhibitions from HKAGA gallery members. Upholding Hong Kong's unique place as the art centre in Asia, UNSCHEDULED's scope is rooted in a commitment to creativity emerging from the continent....

The Artling Presents “House Of Strawberries” By JUJUWANG...
The Artling is pleased to present a solo exhibition, House of Strawberries, by acclaimed Shanghainese artist Juju Wang, opening on 30 April in our Shanghai private viewing space! About the Exhibition The strawberries in this site-specific installation work serve as a representation of a central motif for the way that we irrevocably have influenced our surrounding environment and impacted our planet. This is also an exploration into the effects of this on the core of our development, containing symbols of both motherhood and childhood in terms of the ‘self’, as well as the topics of cultural identification, belonging and the effects of globalization. These complex concepts are juxtaposed with the visual simplicity of the black and white minimalist palette and space. Within the work also lies a personal and intimate message that is not immediately noticeable; Being the favorite fruit of the artist’s daughter, it references youth and infancy, the simple joys of life, the ease of picking from a multitude of options just by following your heart instead of getting lost in the multitude of variables and possible outcomes. At the same time, it is a statement of love from a caring mother looking after her child, in the most elementary and understandable manner, born out of intuition, rather than rationality. The work also conveys an underlying message of a mother’s struggles to protect her child’s health and safety in relation to the state of fresh produce and its often ambiguous sources. The irregular shapes of the porcelain pieces recall an era where food wasn’t aesthetically-standardized and ‘perfect’, compared to present-day situations where harmful pesticides and genetically modified plants are the norms. The artist thus also questions the impact that our human species has over the planet and how future generations will never see, taste or feel the world as we know it today. The individually unique hand-made pieces are constructed from Chinese porcelain, a material which evokes nostalgia and is a nod to the artist’s roots, whilst also celebrating the importance of craftsmanship and local traditions. In the same manner that the strawberries are easily bruised and are very fragile, the installation focuses on the fragility of self and nature, identifying with a constantly changing society and the social, psychological and physical impact that our actions have upon us and everything that surround us. To coincide with all these various underlying messages and concepts, there is also the manifestation of the idea of the passage of time i.e. how the environment is constantly evolving and changing. The strips of mirror within the space invite viewers to participate in the act of self-reflection. It is hoped that through this effect and implication of the infinite, we are reminded of the responsibility that we each have in order to preserve history, to respect our personal growth journeys and to protect our environment so that the future has the fighting chance to be a better version of what we’re living in today....

Largest solo exhibition of Genevieve Chua works opens at STPI Gallery...
A new show by Singaporean painter Genevieve Chua opens at STPI from the 22nd of February, 2020, featuring the largest exhibition of the artist's works to date. Recognised for her abstract approach to painting, Chua has been tapped as one of the most promising artists from Singapore in the last decade. Her use of geometric shapes and a monochromatic palette create complex, intricate works with patterns that evoke qualities of near-abstraction and optical art. An element of awareness in her practice adds playfulness to her exploration of visual perception and how the viewer interacts with her works.  ...

Richard Streitmatter-Tran at de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong...
de Sarthe recently opened their new show; its second solo exhibition for the Vietnam-based contemporary artist Richard Streitmatter-Tran, titled, We No Longer See the Stars. Featuring a new series of paintings, sculptures, and interactive installations, the exhibition stages a commentary on the global tension and social unrest consequent to ongoing disputes across the world. We No Longer See the Stars opens on 18 January and runs through 7 March 2020. In Bless the Beasts and the Children (2019-20), freestanding portraits of people of various ethnicities dressed in black are propped throughout the gallery. As visitors weave through the space, they are forced to confront the unwavering gaze of the painted subjects. Titled after the 1971 film, in which a group of youth struggle in a pyrrhic battle against preordained defeat, the series speaks to the universal tenacity of human will in the face of conflict. Positioned in a front-facing formation, the figures stand in a field of echoed silence....
