American artist Kylie Manning’s Sea Change is her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. Deeply informed by living in Alaska and Mexico during her childhood, Manning’s works situate genderless, anonymous, spectral figures within sweeping landscapes that often capture the light and environments specific to these locations. Sea Change features five large-scale canvases and a selection of related drawings created in 2023, following her collaboration with choreographer Christopher Wheeldon for the New York City Ballet.

Spanish artist Edgar Plans’ solo exhibition Heart of Fearlessness is a playful yet thought-provoking exploration of courage, determination, introspection, and wonder. Using his emblematic motif of “Little Heroes”, Plans draws inspiration from both Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Stan Lee’s Spiderman, using these characters as a vehicle through which to examine the complexities of human nature, morality, and fate, as well as consider what shapes a hero in our modern world.

Aruta Soup, A Lot, 2024
Aruta Soup, A Lot, acrylic on canvas, 169 x 199cm, 2024

The works of Japanese artist Aruta Soup in Ruins are an exercise in social commentary and self-reflection in an exhibition that radically addresses the contradictions and psychological struggles of modern society. The artist’s visual lexicon, centered around a bandaged, cartoon-like rabbit named ZERO, speaks to the core of the British street art and club scene, while representing both the inner struggles and optimism within the peculiar worldview of the artist.

The exhibition features works from a distinguished lineup of highly acclaimed Japanese artists. Their artworks highlight the artists’ shared idealogy to create an interactive and immersive experience for visitors, hence dissolving the boundaries between artist and viewer.
