Residual Heat refers to something remaining, but through an introspective and historical approach, and re-emerging contemporary state of mind. It is closely related to historical art movements and the broader social and cultural changes. It derives great energy from the combination of aesthetics and spirituality, and references to the human condition in the present world.
As a strong supporter of Zero and Gutai art movements from its inception, the gallery’s vision has gradually evolved into contemporary art with a special interest in the concept of the void, the process of the creation and in the questioning of the experience of space and time.
In May 2014, Axel Vervoordt Gallery expanded to Hong Kong and opened its first overseas exhibition venue in the city’s central district. El Anatsui created new work for this occasion. By having a physical presence in Hong Kong, Axel Vervoordt Gallery will continue to bridge artistic expressions between the East and the West.
