Hanart TZ: Inga Svala Thorsdottir and Wu Shanzhuan “Quote!Quote!Quote!”

Hong Kong, Pedder Building, 22 March – 3 May 2018, www.hanart.com

This was a very refreshing show amongst the poshness of the Pedder Building, where most galleries decided to hang individual large size products in respectable distance from each other on the freshly painted gallery walls. Hanart TZ was also freshly painted, no question about that. In addition there was also the smell of freshly cut wood in the air, a result of the wooden maze-like construction and flooring inside of the gallery. The gallery walls were pasted full, floor to ceiling, with works by Thorsdottir and Wu. Some paintings, some drawings, some assemblages. Everything was there. Large and small. An overflow of abundance, reminding of the wunderkammer hangings a few centuries ago. Showing all, and creating a unique all-encompassing environment.
