gallery exhibition

Vivian Poon & Tsang Chui Mei

An artist-curated exhibition by Vivian Poon & Tsang Chui Mei. In response to a carte blanche invitation from Mur Nomade, Hong Kong artists Tsang Chui Mei and Vivian Poon have jointly curated this exhibition. They collaborated to conceive and present new works including drawings, paintings and mixed-media pieces.

The English title is purposely puzzling, as can be the constant swirl of messages, scripts and languages in Hong Kong and other megalopolis. /sic sic/ is simply the phonetic transcription of the Cantonese 色色. In this season of international art fairs, the artists took the bold decision not to translate to concept behind the Chinese title to invite viewers from other cultures to take the time to immerse in the exhibition and to really engage with the works. As both Cantonese and non-Cantonese speakers will appreciate it, the artworks themselves are the translation of the several layers of meaning present in the phrase 色色.

  • Dates: 10 May - 19 July 2014
  • Venue: Mur Nomade
  • Opening Reception: 10 May 2014, 4pm - 6pm
