New Artwork Exhibitions to Verify Out in Hong Kong This February

At the new art exhibitions this February artists look outwards in their pursuit of beauty, bravely putting their own body in front of a camera lens, erecting monuments from sheets and slivers of paper, or finding inspiration in familiar landscapes and objects.

Transforming Taboos

When: Until March 16

For What We Are, De Sarthe gallery invited eight artists to dissect and examine human nature, resulting in a spectacular body of photography, works on canvas and videos. Pictured here is an artist’s nude self-portrait, challenging synthetic boundaries of gender, ideas of utilitarian biology and, evidently, the ubiquitous obsessions with physiological symmetry.

Sombre Narratives

When: Until March 16

For those inclined to melancholic rumination on the now-fading holiday blues, Wu Sibo’s solo exhibition Impermanence at Flowers Gallery might just be the inspiration they need. Through atmospheric paintings devoid of colour, Wu’s depictions of everyday life in urban and rural China induce contemplation, nostalgia and tranquillity.

Beauty of Normality

When: Until March 2

Still Light, Spanish artist Javier Leon Perez’s first solo exhibition with Soluna Fine Art, examines how mundane objects can be reimagined through a contemporary lens. The showcase also features new oil paintings inspired by paper models and embodying an expressive interplay of light and shadow.

When: Until March 16

Celebrating the six remarkable decades of Wuidar’s career, this solo exhibition comprises bold experiments of colour in the context of familiar geometric compositions, as well as never-before-seen works on paper.

Currently on show at Galerie du Monde, Living Paper is a group exhibition showcasing 10 artists who explore the material properties of, well, you guessed it. Armed by ingenuity and creative prowess, these visionaries push the boundaries of physics through tearing, sculpting, soaking and puncturing this versatile medium.
