Leung Chi Wo, We Must Construct As Well As Destroy (20 January– 03 March 2012)
ROKEBY launch their next exhibition by Chinese artist Leung Chi Wo at the gallery on Thursday 19 January from 6.30 – 8.30.
ROKEBY are delighted to announce the first solo exhibition in London by Chinese artist Leung Chi Wo and if you wish to go along to the launch at 5-9 Hatton Wall, the artist will be present and drinks will be served. Leung Chi. Wo is one of Hong Kong’s leading contemporary artists of a generation influenced by the territory’s post-1997 identity and politics.
The& multi-disciplinary practice ranges from photography and video to text, performance and installation; Leung is concerned with the undetermined relationship between conception, perception and understanding, especially in relation to site and history, within cultural and political frameworks. The work will be seen in London, before being exhibited in Hong Kong underlining the artist’s investigations into notions of context and place and further exploring Leung’s interest in contradiction and relativism.
