Axel Vervoordt Gallery Hong Kong is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Tsuyoshi Maekawa (born 1936, Osaka). This exhibition features works from the late 1970s, which represent the significant shift from the artist’s vigorous colour-based work to delicate fabric-based expressions. The 1970s can be seen as a preparatory period in which he discovered a new style and unique ways to explore pictorial spaces in painting.
El Anatsui – Proximately

El Anatsui – Proximately

10.10.2017 - 13.01.2018
Axel Vervoordt Gallery is pleased to present El Anatsui’s exhibition titled, Proximately, consisting of seven new works. Proximately continues the artist’s exploration into the diverse language of his chosen materials. Anatsui uses aluminium bottle caps and the labels of liquor bottles that are stitched together with copper wire to create sculptural installations often mounted to the wall like a three-dimensional draped tapestry. The transformation and reuse of simple, everyday materials draws attention to contemporary ideas about waste, consumption, and recycling, but the artist prefers to imply and suggest meaning rather than enforce it.

Lucia Bru - Rien ne change de forme comme les nuages, si ce n'est les rochers

25.11.2017 - 13.01.2018
Nothing is more admirable than an artist’s obstinacy in working out possible variations of ‘things’ which, at first sight, seem utterly mundane. It is a process of parsing these elements, so as to illuminate their tiniest differences; it is a matter of grouping them, or setting them apart; it is a practice of following the objects’ potential right into the folds and creases of a piece of paper, onto the harshness of a stone, or into the transparency of a piece of crystal…. Why should our gazes only be sensitive to the spectacular efforts of some, and less concerned with the outline of a rock, or the shape-shifting of clouds? It is to this kind of attention that we are compelled by Lucia Bru’s work: it sharpens our vision and leads us into a universe of shapes and gestures. Its apparent simplicity is, above all, attained through an exacting process of distilling what is essential.
