Towards the Interior

Galerie Huit in Hong Kong holds “Towards The Interior“, a group exhibition till October 16th. It features Aleksandra Mir, Isabel Nolan, Adam Silverman the ceramic artist and Zhu Tian the sculptor.

“Towards the Interior” comprises a selection of mixed media sculptures, fibre-tipped pen drawings, and video animation that collectively suggest a living space, and as separate pieces pertain to the psychological quotient occupying a private realm.

Mir creates alternative narratives and visions of the world by way of the Sharpie pen, a much loved tool designed for everyday use. Nolan is interested in the concept that the floors of galleries are often overlooked, and would like to address this by forcing us to “look down and attend to what is at foot rather than eye level”. Silverman establishes a contemporary vocabulary that communicates the ornamental and functional. Through Zhu’s work, as we create the environments we hope will suit us, we cannot always control however, the limitations that they impose.
