Artist Allen Wong will have his solo exhibition opening “Onlookers – Work by Allen Wong” in AFA on November 30 (Wednesday), at 6:30 p.m. This time a total of 19 acrylic artworks will be showcased in the exhibition, including Journey to the West – Deities & Demons and Teapot these two series.
Reshaping ready-mades, the exhibits of Wong Soi Lon in this show aim to seek his very own context of language. In recent years, he has been engrossed in the production paper egg trays – a commonplace, low-priced and simple material which is to be immediately disposed after it is used for its designated function. However, to this artist, rebirth and creation with the item is possible.
Teapot series is jointly composed by Wong and his schoolmates, while Journey to the West – Deities & Demons, a sequel of his Birdcage series, demonstrates the conflict of humanity and society through deconstruction of narratives. Wong attempts to represent the spiritual aesthetics in oriental literati painting from an onlooker’s perspective.
“Onlookers – Works by Allen Wong” is partly sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, Macao SAR Government. Media partners include Hoje Macau and Ponto Final. The exhibition will be opened to public from November 30 to December 18.
