ART GALLERIES HONG KONG
gallery EXIT is only a bit over a year old and has proven its place in the Hong Kong art landscape by consistently exhibiting high quality art.
It was founded with the “purpose of exhibiting progressive and ambitious works in all media that seek to go beyond the boundaries of nationality and discipline.”
As an example, the gallery is showing works by Kong Chun Hei in his first solo exhibition, Gleaning.
The artist, born in 1987, graduated at the top of his class from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2009, leaving with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He demonstrates a disciplined concentration through his work. He lives and works in Hong Kong.
The show, consisting of ink on paper drawings of everyday objects, aims to portray the significance of the moment when we accept these objects for what they are. His works focus on the act of drawing itself and its relationship to observation and seeing.
