"Tong1Fong4"@Karin Weber, Trevpr Yeung@Parasite & in the studio: saxophonist Timothy Wan

You may remember that a couple of months ago, The Works featured “Fountain de Chopin” a platform to promote, and increase interest in, jazz music. One of its founders, saxophonist Timothy Wan will be with us later to introduce some original music he’s working on right now. But before that we begin with new work in the visual arts.
At the Karin Weber Gallery In February and early March a group of young Hong Kong artists presented works focusing on a subject that’s always a priority here: finding somewhere to live in and create a home. The exhibition was titled “tong fong” which means sub-divided flats. In the show, the five artists taking part explored ideas of home and household objects. We spoke to two of them.

As you step into the gallery space of Para Site, you'll be immediately captivated by the extraordinary centrepiece of the “Soft breath” exhibition. Using soap as his material, Trevor Yeung has re-created a tree trunk from London’s Hampstead Heath that formerly achieved notoriety for its use for then-illicit sexual liaisons. Yeung uses the oak tree trunk to highlight the unspoken language of public sex. The show runs until the 26th May. And Yeung is now representing Hong Kong at the 60th Venice Biennale.
