Wing Po So
Sep 7 – 21
Opening: Saturday, Sep 7, 5 – 7pm
The gallery is pleased to present the Hong Kong-based artist Wing Po So’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, From the Body to the Body Through the Body, concluding de Sarthe’s third annual artist residency (deSAR). Featuring a new series of sculptures and delicate plaster carvings, as well as an immersive, large-scale installation the exhibition continues the artist’s ongoing exploration of Chinese medicinal materials. Through a studied use of corn – one of the most common of Chinese medicinal ingredients – a fictitious archeological reality is produced within the exhibition, offering new perspectives on time, space, truth and logic.
de Sarthe Gallery was founded in 1977 in Paris, later establishing galleries in America and most recently in Hong Kong and Beijing. In the Hong Kong space, the gallery represents and exhibits a diverse spectrum of international artists, from important French Impressionists to Asian and Western modern and Post-War masters to a new generation of emerging artists.
