Perrotin Hong Kong is relocating its gallery space to a new location in Victoria Dockside waterfront.
To celebrate its relocation, it’s opening a group exhibition titled “Kaleidoscopes: Contemporary Portraiture.” The show features 10 leading artists, including Takashi Murakami, Barry McGee, MADSAKI, Aya Takano among others, and explores ways in which the human experience can be understood and transformed through different manners of representation and self-representation.
The portraits form “a kaleidoscopic view of likeness at once familiar and destabilizing, a reflection invoking multiple narratives, states of being, and metamorphosing selves,” Perrotin says in a statement, as the more documentary side of portraiture starts to shift towards having more abstract and revelatory representations.
Highlights of the show include Murakami’s bronze and stainless steel Pom & Me sculpture, Takano’s playful painting titled Nepalese rug♡Himalayan monal, rhododendron, festival of dog, chatpate, and Jean-Philippe Delhomme’s portrait, Joséphine. Open until August 8 at Perrotin Hong Kong’s new gallery space, K11 ATELIER Victoria Dockside, 18 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
