Kiang Malingue is pleased to present Beech, Pine, Fern, Acacia, Zheng Bo’s solo exhibition at the gallery’s Tin Wan space. For the first time, Zheng Bo groups together four “biophilia films” in one space — Pteridophilia (2016-), The Political Life of Plants (2020-), Le Sacre du printemps (2021-), and Samur (2023) — tracing the myriad trajectories through which their artistic practice has evolved in the last decade.
Also ongoing at the gallery’s Tin Wan space is Liu Yin’s solo exhibition “Spring”, featuring a series of paintings and watercolours created in the past two years. Known for developing a painting practice that puts Shōjo manga-inspired cute faces on public figures in academic or political fields, pop culture characters and inanimate objects, Liu reveals and reshapes the emotional and narrative structures that operate within complex events. The theme of “Spring” casually alludes to Botticelli’s masterpiece, presenting a series of landscapes and still lifes that add large, crystalline eyes and adorable faces to flowers, plants, fruits and skulls.
At the gallery’s Sik On Street location is entangled traces, disremembered landscapes, Tiffany Chung’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, featuring new cartographic works and a 3-channel video installation. By tracing the entanglements of nature, culture, colonialism, war, and state-making, and introducing pivotal temporal aspects to the act of mapping, the internationally acclaimed artist continues her ever-deepening exploration of geopolitics, history, and memory, marking critical shifts in historical narratives.
Furthermore, at booth 1C11 of Art Basel Hong Kong this year, Kiang Malingue will showcase a selection of recent artworks by Eric Baudart, Cho Yong-Ik, Chou Yu-Cheng, Ho Tzu Nyen, Brook Hsu, Ko Sin Tung, Lai Chih-Sheng, Liu Xiaohui, Liu Yin, Fabien Mérelle, Nabuqi, Homer Shew, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Wong Ping, Hiroka Yamashita, Yeung Hok Tak, Samson Young, Yuan Yuan, and Zheng Zhou. Nabuqi’s Fountain: Night Garden (2020) will also be on view in the ‘Encounters’ sector (EN4). A large-scale fountain appropriates and reconstructs the image of the fountain—water pumps, tarps, steel frames, advertising banners—emphasising the restrained, anti-monumental nature of the cascade, transforming a majestic symbol of authority into a set of complex material relations.
