White Cube Hong Kong is pleased to announce a new presentation of work by Haim Steinbach, the artist’s first solo exhibition Tin Drum in Greater China.

Since the late 1970s, Steinbach has been creating installations, collecting and arranging objects in ‘Displays’, which take the form of shelves and other architectural apparatus. The artist treats objects as ciphers, each with their own particular identity, story or history, whose meanings and associations rely on the ‘contingency of their placement’, always subject to change. Steinbach’s shelf works bring about a tension between the role of art and the kind of displays people might assemble at home. Inviting a second look, he asks the viewer to question their perceived understanding of things and to address the act of looking, shifting the parameters to make us see what he presents in many different ways.
