Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to inaugurate its new location at K11 ATELIER Victoria Dockside with a group exhibition exploring meanings of portraiture through the lens of selected artists.

Featuring Hernan Bas, Chen Fei, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Izumi Kato, MADSAKI, Eddie Martinez, Barry McGee, Mr., Takashi Murakami, and Aya Takano, Kaleidoscopes: Contemporary Portraiture considers different manners of representation and self-representation, and the methods from which they are derived. Alternating between dualities of figuration/abstraction and introspection/perception, the exhibited works examine the formation of identity and humanistic ideals as they become subject to scrutiny and change.

Using portraiture as a starting point, Kaleidoscopes: Contemporary Portraiture presents interpretations of the ways with which the human experience may be understood and transformed. Each portrait is an expression of the artist’s vision; altogether, they form a kaleidoscopic view of likeness at once familiar and destabilizing, a reflection conjuring multiple narratives, states of being, and metamorphosing selves.

The gallery opens from Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 7pm (closed on public holidays). No appointment is required. Visitors are required to register at the concierge at the lobby of K11 ATELIER for a visitor pass to enter the building.
