Wang KepingWang Keping05 Feb - 28 Feb, 201510 Chancery Lane Gallery
Wang Keping is one of China's foremost sculptors. His work defies definition. Inspired in his early years by masters of European Modernist and African sculpture, his search today stems from Zen or Buddhist ideas of simplicity and nature, material and the non-material, physical and spiritual. Through his bestial erotic forms and swirling lines he works with a language of natural intuition of space and object, collaborating with his material and the secrets it has to reveal.
Stir FryKonstantin Bessmertny26 Nov, 2014 - 31 Jan, 201510 Chancery Lane Gallery
Bessmertny is a child of the crossroads, born in the Russian-Chinese border town of Blagoveshchensk and moved to Macau with his wife Gala in 1994. Educated in the Vladivostok Academy of Fine Arts in classical painting he is trained in the skillful mastery of European traditional painting that he chooses or chooses not to use at will. Very well read on many subjects, his works traverse between philosophy, politics, theology, art history and music. However, these subjects are just devices to arrive at something deeper, which is his cutting insight and observations of human behavior as a parody of life. In his newest series of works entitled “STIR FRY” Bessmertny traverses our connected and disconnected worlds between East and West within the backdrops of European settings. Within a stir fry the elements are still distinguishable. They don’t melt together as in a stew. They remain as distinct items within a contained vessel. Bessmertny likens his life living in Asia with the diversity of peoples and cultures all within the global city of Hong Kong to a Stir Fry. The English, the Scots, the Cantonese, the Mainlanders, the Japanese, the Russians, the Koreans, etc. make for an interesting mix of both global exchanges set within very traditional cultures that can be both nationalistic or clinging to traditional cultural expressions. This may be considered as the forms in which traditional culture is expressed, how it forms part of the identity and heritage of a traditional community, as well as how they are passed down from generation to generation. Within this series Bessmertny touches upon the Scottish Referendum, the Hong Kong protests, the American ideologues all intertwined within a parody of provocative thoughts and ideas. Bessmertny’s paintings have the appeal of a grandiose Baroque masterpiece yet the cutting edge of a modern-day samurai. He touches on many a taboo subject yet the works still hold an air of traditional elegance.

Frog King: TotemFrog King26 Sep - 22 Oct, 201410 Chancery Lane Gallery
10 Chancery Lane is proud to present a momentous new solo exhibition by Hong Kong artist Frog King Kwok (a.k.a. Kwok Mang-ho, b. 1947). An inimitable force unto himself, Frog King is a pioneering conceptual and performance artist who has been breaking boundaries in Hong Kong and beyond since the late 1960s. Originally trained in ink painting and calligraphy in the studio of seminal New Ink Painting master Lui Shou Kwan--where he was already considered to be something of an enfant terrible—Frog King is one of the earliest Chinese contemporary artists to explore the use of ink painting as a conceptual tool, incorporating it as both action and material into multiple-media installations, performances, happenings and assembled environments incorporating discards and everyday objects. For the TOTEM exhibition at 10 Chancery Lane, Frog King has been invited to transform the exterior and interior spaces of the gallery, working with guest curator Valerie C. Doran to create a layered environment of art (and of realms) that both showcases Frog King’s vibrant installation and performance work and at the same time reveals a deeper stillness at the heart of the artist’s expressive life. Special features will include a new series of carved wood sculptures, totemic columns, ink paintings and screens.

Spring and AutumnMuchen and Shao Yinong15 May - 30 Aug, 2014
Using the refined technique of traditional Suzhou embroidery, the works create highly detailed yet fragile images – These currencies have become symbols of certain periods in history representing the power and beliefs of political regimes and economic powers which once prevailed but whose time has now well-passed.

These early abstract works represent a new framing of reality for contemporary China, one that becomes free from the expressions of socialist realism, which controlled art under Maoist China. They are now being re-examined as significant examples of contemporary art deeply rooted in Chinese philosophies and structures setting Huang Rui apart from art of that era

That Hrdaya 2, 2013
A Splendid Web from Heaven to EarthMuchen and Shao Yinong15 Apr - 03 May, 201410 Chancery Lane Gallery
A Splendid Web from Heaven to Earth is an installation of a giant web flowing delicately from ceiling to the floor. The stainless-steel-made web looks shimmering and inviting from afar. However, as one gets closer, what seems so still and peaceful a moment ago suddenly turns unsettling. The conflicting feeling is a metaphor of the chaos in today’s world. It poses a question to our being, a threat to our sense of existence. The Hrdaya, or literally “Eternal Heart”, is a series of wood works by Shao Yinong. As he takes off the layers of bark of the tree trunk following patterns of its annual rings, the artist uncovers the pagoda-like structure hidden in it. He further fills the cracks of the trunks with ash which is commonly seen in temples in Qinghai area. The installation triggers a religious and spiritual reading into it, inviting the viewers to look into eternity through traces of life. Also in the exhibition are the photographic work, Webbed by Muchen and a series of etching by Shao Yinong entitled, Objects of Nature. Shao Yinong and Muchen have selected these four series of new works to conclude a stage of their on-going research in the past few years. It also marks the beginning of another journey for the artists, one that leads to a deeper search concerning both the external and internal worlds.

Duplicator's DilemmaAtul Dodiya20 Nov, 2013 - 15 Feb, 201410 Chancery Lane Gallery
10 Chancery Lane Gallery is proud to present Atul Dodiya for his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Duplicator’s Dilemma, following his opening survey at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. Atul Dodiya (b. 1959) is a highly personal and referential artist often going into his subject matter in both a playful yet luringly dark ways. Being one of India’s most celebrated artists he works on subjects that layer and combine traditions of his native land with art historical clichés paying homage to famous artists such as Roy Lichtenstein seen in his newest series of shutter doors exhibiting at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery. The shutter doors bring the commonly seen Bombay shop fronts into the contemporary art genre. Dodiya uses the duplicity of imagery to play with wild contrasts of scenery.
Universal Record of the FlameLindy Lee16 Oct - 16 Nov, 201310 Chancery Lane Gallery
Australian artist Lindy Lee presents a new series of bronze and metal works. The bronze fire stones have evolved from Lindy Lee's 'flung ink' painting practice. The tradition of 'flung ink' is an ancient Chinese painting technique which is based on spontaneity. After a period of meditation, the artist takes up a cup of ink and splashes it across paper. Although the marks appear to be made from chance, the spiritual understanding is that the patterns formed are caused from the interconnection of all conditions that exist in the universe in that moment. Within these marks is embodied the energy and totality of the entire cosmos.
Mid Autumn MoonHung Liu17 Sep - 12 Oct, 201310 Chancery Lane Gallery
Chinese history has predominated Hung Liu’s work throughout her career. Born and raised in Beijing during Mao’s Great Leap Forward and trained in the Social Realist tradition, Liu’s paintings are now transformed into a new and vibrant series of tapestries. Liu describes her works by saying, “I hope to wash the subject of its exotic ‘otherness’ and reveal it as a dignified, even mythic figure.” Liu’s tapestries reveal the beauty and heroism in the labors of an anonymous women from China’s past. Drawing inspiration from history, old photographs and her own experiences, this series of exquisitely produced tapestries join Hung Liu with artist tapestries of Picasso, Kandinsky, Warhol and more recently Chuck Close, Craigie Horsefield and William Kentridge in exploring this medium as a contemporary art form.

The Embryonic Plant and OtherworldsSonia Mehra Chawla28 Feb - 03 Apr, 201310 Chancery Lane Gallery
The suite of works are a meditation on the passage of nature’s cycle and the temporal flow of birth and regeneration. The images are at once generative and sensuous, macabre and degenerate, opulent and awe-inspiring, carrying within them the vitality of the living, and the vulnerability of decay. For philosopher Michel Foucault, "heterotopias" designates real or imagined spaces of escape/departure, transformation, or revelation.

As Wang Keping states, "The iron boxes from the Eternal Smile series is a breakthrough of my ongoing exploration of wood carving, it presents the same underlying idea with the use of a different medium. This is an extension or evolution of my work through a change of material, rather than a change of my relative direction."

LOVE THE FUTUREanothermountainman, MAP OFFICE26 May - 26 Jun, 2011

Li Wei Performance "Take Away" at Shanghai TangLi Wei27 May, 2010
This performance at Shanghai Tang titled "TAKE AWAY" touches on our desire of wanting and in that wanting there are no limits. Li Wei, that the concept of a “Take Away” is a deliberate contradiction of how a regular take-away refers to the taking home of leftovers. Here, his desire for everything that consumerism has to offer has prompted him to not limit his choices to what he can take, but to instead wrap up the entire house of Shanghai Tang and take everything with him.

Flowers FallLindy Lee25 Feb - 10 Apr, 201010 Chancery Lane Gallery
With the traditional ideas of splashing ink on paper, Lindy Lee throws molten bronze to create a kaleidoscope of objects somehow both figurative and abstract.

Unveil The Red Curtain curated by Feng BoyiMeng Jin, Wang Shugang21 Sep - 03 Nov, 200710 Chancery Lane Gallery
Feng Boyi, China’s most active curator, a man with his finger on the pulse of the art scene, brings to Hong Kong a powerhouse of new work from five outstanding artists. Having curated the controversial show “Fuck Off” in 2000 with Ai Weiwei in opposition to the Shanghai Biennial that turned China’s head upside down, the theme ‘Unveil the Red Curtain’ is a move beyond the direct reflections and interpretations of the Cultural Revolution. This progression does away with the need to refer directly to themes of the ‘Red Classics’ thus the work shown does not have obvious references to Mao, Tiananmen Square and other iconic Chinese imagery, rather it invokes memories of recent times in modern day China. Feng Boyi’s strength as a curator relies on his depth of knowledge, his strong convictions and sense of humour; these characteristics are shared by all of the artists he has worked with on this project. They are: Meng Jin (Photography), Yu Fan (Sculpture), Song Dong (Videography), Wang Shugang (Installation), Jing Kewen (Painting).

The Assembly HallsMuchen and Shao Yinong25 Nov, 2005 - 14 Jan, 200610 Chancery Lane Gallery
The husband and wife team of Shao Yinong and Muchen in the series entitled, Assembly Halls have traveled to the 23 different provinces in Mainland China and photographed in truth and simplicity the very profound leftovers of the cultural revolution, which spanned between 1966 until 1976. The assembly halls are all different, some are old barns, some renovated into restaurants, and still others into sewing factories. The empty halls devoid of life reek with a ghost-like atmosphere of the past at once nostalgically beautiful and at the same time simmering with the historical intensity of one of China’s most turbulent periods. The halls ring with emptiness and it is in this emptiness that your mind is free to wonder and contemplate the collective memory of a nation’s gathering grounds where billions of people were indoctrinated, judged, and humiliated publicly but at the same time a place that later symbolized ceremonial gatherings such as graduations. Although the rooms are vacant there is a feeling that the crowds have either just left or are just about to arrive.
