Liang Ban

Neon Wilderness: Nazca Lines (detail) by Liang Ban, EVA panels, metal bars, paint, fluorescent powder, dimensions variable, 2018.

The Gallery is pleased to announce Liang Ban’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, Diary of a Pioneer. The show features all new work and is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.

The exhibition questions a conventional understanding of culture in which civilization and nature are diametrically opposed. With surrealist and humorous undertones, Liang Ban argues our idealized notion of a civilization constantly in progress dilutes a more complicated reality in which our relationship to nature and wilderness are closely connected. Within only four artworks, the exhibition carries viewers to a point of cathartic reflection on the impossibility of understanding human civilization.
