Massimo De Carlo is pleased to present The gazing eyes won’t lie, exceptionally launching simultaneously in Massimo De Carlo Hong Kong and the new Massimo De Carlo Virtual Space, The gazing eyes won’t lie marks the reopening of our Hong Kong gallery, after months of lockdown. This project, conceived by Lee Kit, who was born in Hong Kong, contributes to reactivate the Hong Kong arts community. By happening both in a real space and in a virtual realm, The gazing eyes won’t lie is also an experimentation both on the concept of an exhibition itself and exhibition making during these difficult times when the global world is put on hold.

Containing a multitude of meanings, the exhibition takes the audience through a journey through feelings, both acute and fleeting, amidst an uncertain backdrop. Employing linguistic phrases, imagery and visual elements, taken both from the artist’s immediate vicinity or disparate cultural influences from music, The gazing eyes won’t lie encapsulates a specific airiness and ephemerality that reverberates throughout the show with an emotional intensity.
