White Cube Hong Kong presents an exhibition of new paintings by Sergej Jensen. 
This marks Jensen’s third exhibition with the gallery and first exhibition in Asia.
Entitled ‘Evian’, the exhibition will continue to demonstrate Jensen’s practice of incorporating diverse material elements into his pictures and utilise an unconventional and contrary application of acrylic paint. Mostly small in scale with a subdued palette, the paintings employ methods of layering, charring, staining and adhering to create arrestingly minimal compositions. Jensen recycles materials within his work, using the stains, tears and traces of use on linen, burlap, silk and wool as compositional readymades for his own pictures. In this way, he has been ‘systematically removing the conventions of painting from his work, removing even gesture and paint itself

Tang Yongxiang – Magician Space Beijing


Girl Looking Back
Oil on Canvas
50×40cm
2013

 

Artist: Tang Yongxiang at Magician Space

Date: Jan. 11 – Mar. 9, 2014

 

Solo exhibition of Tang Yongxiang. Tang Yongxiang’s paintings emerge from a process of concealment: the artist’s process attempts to abandon vestiges of individual experience and society’s backdrop by obscuring judgment and ideology, whilst also reorganizing and liberating fragments of images. Indulgence paradoxically alternates here with rationality to offer a mode of producing work full of tension. The outline of these extreme forms is analogous to a schizophrenic individual; they shape together Tang Yongxiang’s eclectic artistic language.

 

Tang Yongxiang has often mentioned in interviews, ‘…even if I am unsure exactly what an object really is, there will always be a certain ‘object’ captured. It is this ‘thing’ that will be facing you. However you may paint it, it will never quite be enough.’ Akin to discovering a scene cleared away just after an accident, Tang Yongxiang is interested in revealing a trove of submerged pieces. This idea ofan underlying current with each individual eye produces a unique effect to unravel all kinds of clues and generate new connections. The relationship between human identity and its dark side is buried within the painting. They continually clash together and become immersed in perpetual search of one another. Or viewed from another perspective: after a process of cleansing vestiges of memory, they can be regarded as the final remnants reduced into purified symbols – together they convey an unceasing reflection and exploration with each creation.
