Liang Hao – Unfolding into the Expanse Curated by Tang Zehui

Liang Hao – Unfolding into the Expanse Curated by Tang Zehui

The viewer is asked to consider one’s self within the folds of time, space, and materiality. The human form is the subject but is never presented as a whole; the experience of the viewer in a conversation with the work becomes supreme. As the artist Liang Hao creates his own world within each painting, he is focused on transmitting this same exploration within the viewer. Ultimately, Liang unfolds a visceral look into the self, ignited by meditation in the constant metamorphosis of reality.

Hidden Hong Kong: 10 historical spots where you can still glimpse old Hong Kong

Hong Kong: the land of gleaming skyscrapers, cop and triad films, and amazing food. On the surface of this concrete jungle, there’s not much left to hint at the city’s humble beginnings, and it’s pretty unbelievable to look back now and think that this sparkling metropolis was once a mere fishing village, serendipitously favoured by the British for its strategic location on the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea. Let us take you on a tour of the city to places where you can still find vestiges of an older Hong Kong from a previous age.
