Hans-Peter Feldmann

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present our second exhibition in Hong Kong of influential German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann.

Characterised by its engagement with art history and vernacular imagery, Feldmann’s conceptual work has developed over more than four decades. A compulsive collector and appropriator of found images and everyday ephemera, Feldmann’s oeuvre incorporates photography, sculpture, installation, drawing and painting. With surprising humour and subtle intervention, he systematically reconstructs existing images and objects to reflect on representation and the construction of ideologies.

Angela Bulloch: One way conversation...

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new sculptures by acclaimed artist Angela Bulloch. One way conversation… is a continuation of Bulloch’s latest body of work presented last year in Considering Dynamics and The Forms of Chaos at the Sharjah Art Museum, UAE and L'ALMANACH 16 at the Le Consortium Dijon, France. Formed in steel and MDF, the stacked columns of polyhedra have a stylized geometry and manufactured surface sheen that alludes to minimalism and technology. Often apparent in Bulloch’s installations where technology mediates interaction with the work, is her interest in cybernetics, fundamental themes of biological, social and technological systems, and the integration of the human subject with technology.

Marco Brambilla: Theater

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition in Hong Kong of artist Marco Brambilla. Re-contextualizing century old histories with an array of pop cultural sources, the painterly dimensions of Brambilla's films combine cinematic techniques and technologies to challenge the standards of fine art and Hollywood. With precise technical production and seamless editing, Brambilla’s multi-layered tableaux of interconnecting images and looped video blend into expansive landscapes.

Hong Kong  15 July - 15 August 2016

Connect 4 Luke Ching Chin Wai, Chris Huen Sin Kai, Kwan Sheung Chi, Kong Chun Hei, Sarah Lai Cheuk Wah, Lui Chun Kwong. Curated by Ying Kwok

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present Connect 4, an exhibition exploring the role that social connections and artistic interconnections play in the practice of a group of artists living and working in Hong Kong. Evoking the qualities of the networked city and the broader experiential possibilities of art, the close-knit artistic community of Hong Kong inevitably cultivates a rich sensibility of participation in and referencing between the practices of each artist. This exhibition presents an inter-generational group of artists whose practices explores vernacular materials, forms and contemporaneous emotional and social conditions.

Hong Kong  28 May - 28 July 2016

Fractured Kathryn Andrews, Angela Bulloch, Bernard Frize, Louise Lawler, Daido Moriyama, John Stezaker, Christopher Wool, Toby Ziegler

Simon Lee Gallery Hong Kong is proud to present Fractured a selected group exhibition exploring one of modernism’s most characteristic formal strategies, the fracturing of the picture plane. Just as the Renaissance development of perspective yielded the possibility of the representation of three dimensional space in a two dimensional plane, so the modernist device of splitting the picture plane by means of formal fault lines suggested the simultaneous presentation of multiple viewpoints, and opened the door to abstraction.

Dexter Dalwood: Propaganda Painting

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new paintings by London-based artist Dexter Dalwood, his second exhibition with the gallery and first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. 

This new series further develops Dalwood’s ongoing investigation into the role of images and painting in the construction of history. The context of China has provided him with a rich history to draw upon in order to make wider cultural, economic and political associations and provocations in this new body of paintings.

Garth Weiser

Simon Lee Gallery is proud to present for the first time in Asia, an exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Garth Weiser. Working in combined layers of line and colour, Weiser’s gestural and literal carvings cut up the painting in a built up tension between the intricate syntax of abstraction and the paintings’ physical surface. Marked by materiality, textures, burnished surfaces and a striking synthesis of addition and negation, the intensely textured paintings point to Weiser’s implicit observations of the evolution in the practice of painting.
