Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by Josephine Meckseper. On view at the gallery’s Hong Kong space from 4 November 2022 – 21 January 2023, this exhibition will comprise new paintings, a vitrine, and a film work informed by the evolution and surroundings of her work practice.
Throughout her career, Josephine Meckseper’s large-scale vitrine installations and films have melded the aesthetic language of early modernism with her own imagery of historical undercurrents. Her works, encompassing sculpture, painting, photography, and film, simultaneously expose and encase cultural signifiers and everyday objects to form an investigation into the collective unconscious of our time. The works for this exhibition, made between 2020 – 2022, come together to explore the concept of recycling, tracing, and capturing matter and memory as experienced by the artist during these unprecedented years.
