Dodooba  Art guide to shows in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore

The installations by Lee Kit (b. 1978, Hong Kong) demonstrate his intentions to radically expand the framework of painting. In Lee's third solo show at @ShugoARTS titled “Not untitled,” the artist uses several walls to partition the gallery to create a maze. His projector paintings (next images) cast a net over the fragmented space and stitch dichotomous elements—including viewers’ own shadows—into a heterogenous vertigo-inducing mix in which the gallery functions as Lee’s canvas.

“Abstraction of the World” is a collaborative exhibition presented together with the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018) curated by @mami_kataoka_2018, Chief Curator of Mori Art Museum and the Artistic Director of the 21st Biennale of Sydney. Since ancient times, human beings have been fascinated by the structure of cosmic space and the natural phenomena of the world. Fundamental elements such as light and darkness, wind and rain, water and fire do not have fixed structures or form; therefore, they have often been depicted by different cultures and civilisations as abstract forms. Such examples can be found in East Asian belief systems and folklore, such as Taijitu (太極図), Wuxing (五行)and I Ching trigrams, as well as in various Indigenous cultures around the world. This exhibition features work by three artists from the Asia Pacific region—Mit Jai Inn, George Tjungurrayi and Haegue Yang—who through their research and repertoires, reference and explore such concepts in abstraction. As Mami Kataoka notes: “"Abstraction of the World" explores some of the diverse philosophies surrounding the essential elements of the universe, investigating a pursuit of meaning in abstraction that goes beyond modernist perspectives of abstract expressionism and minimal, conceptual art. It is a reflection of some of my early thinking about the 21st Biennale exhibition opening in March, 2018.”

Robert Zhao Renhui’s multi-disciplinary approach appropriates scientific language, tools, methods and even apparatus, juxtaposed with fabulist storytelling. His works inhabit an uncanny space between reality and fantasy, often exposing overlooked contradictions, assumptions, and tensions inherent in man’s relationship with nature. Blending fact and fiction, truth and artifice, the artist invites viewers to contemplate upon the image and information being presented, a reflexive gesture that proves to be particularly pertinent in an image-saturated world of “fake news.” And sometimes, as the artist demonstrates, truth is in fact stranger than fiction.

This show explores the groundbreaking exhibition at the Kyoto City Art Museum organised by Japanese conceptual artist Matsuzawa Yutaka in 1970. The exhibition was open to all applicants who fit 9 conditions, which included: material to be limited to an absolute minimum; preference for invisible or imaginary expressions; and expressions that may or may not exist; etc. The 85 artists that participated in this show included Lawrence Weiner, John Baldessari, Jan Dibbets, Stanley Brown, Gilbert & George, and Robert Barry. The exhibition itself lasted for only 3 days, decreasing in scale from 13 rooms to 1 as the show progressed. This exhibition embodied the idea of ‘immaterialisation’ later dubbed as ‘Free Art’ or ‘Free Commune’—an enlightened coexistence of diverse minds and expressions—advocated by Matsuzawa, and would set the standard for all international exhibitions on Conceptualism in Japan for years to come.
