香港佩斯畫廊精心推出專題群展「Chewing Gum V」,繼2015年首次舉辦「Chewing Gum」群展後該系列的第五輯,將繼續呈現畫廊藝術家的廣泛創作實踐。

Hong Kong Pace is pleased to present Chewing Gum V, the latest presentation in a series of group exhibitions highlighting the gallery’s expansive, international program, at its Hong Kong space.

Why it matters:

On view from July 22 to September 1, the exhibition will spotlight work by key modern and contemporary artists, including Zhang Xiaogang, Louise Nevelson, Mao Yan, Irving Penn, Kiki Smith, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, and other figures. The show will meditate on exchanges between artists across temporal and geographic boundaries.

4 Highlights:

.Zhang is known for his figurative paintings and sculptures that engage with memory to explore both personal and collective histories. Replete with symbolism and allusions, his painting Green Wall – White Bed (2008), on view in Chewing Gum V, examines the intermingling of public and private spaces.


.Mao’s 2013 painting Oval Portrait: Andrew eschews markers of cultural and temporal significance. Rather, the portrait is imbued with spiritual and psychological complexities that encourage introspection and contemplation of the self. Meanwhile, Penn’s black-and-white fashion photographs reflect the idiosyncratic, malleable nature of self-expression.

.史密斯的雕塑《兔子》(1998) 探討了捕食者與其獵物間的關係,而奥登伯格/凡・布鲁根的雕塑 《衣領與領結 1: 16》(2005)則凸顯了看似平庸的日常物品當中的獨特及有趣的一面。

.Smith’s dynamic sculpture Rabbits (1998) examines the relationships between predators and their prey, while Oldenburg and van Bruggen’s 2005 sculpture Collar and Bow 1:16 draws out the madcap qualities of seemingly banal, everyday objects.


.In the way of abstract works, a 3D printed sculpture by Sui Jianguo, which features the artist’s fingerprints in white copper, figures in Chewing Gum V. Liu Jianhua’s porcelain sculpture Blank Paper (2014) explores enactments of blankness and their attendant resonances, inviting viewers to conjure their own narratives of the work and the exhibition as a whole.
