Jul 17 – Sep 7
During the residency the artist will transform the space into a fictional excavation site. The artworks she plans to construct are made with Chinese medicinal ingredients such as plants, roots, seeds, and minerals, in addition to found objects. Engaging human senses through textures and smells, So’s work fundamentally reconstructs time, space, and scale to contemplate philosophies about matter and being.
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.
