The gallery is pleased to present Hung Keung: Digital Media Art Installation at the Aberdeen space. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Hung Keung, a renowned digital media installation artist from Hong Kong and grantee of Asian Cultural Council Award (2005), is known for his interactive installations that combine film, video, and digital new media with themes from Chinese classical philosophy, art, and literature. This exhibition showcases Hung’s latest works from three of his iconic creation, including two groups with flowers and Chinese characters as the main themes – the multi-channel video “Four Seasons: Extended Time Series” and the vibrant digital moving images “Grain Rain Series”. The imagery depicts mist, flowers, charcoal, and rice paper transitioning from vibrancy to decay through ink variations. The dancing Chinese characters respond to these subtle changes, suggesting the relationship between the nature and the passage of time. V.1 of “Four Seasons” has been collected by Hong Kong Museum of Art.
Alisan Fine Arts was founded in 1981. Over the years it has organised more than 100 exhibitions for Chinese artists living around the world.
