How black is darkness? How light is white? What are the secrets of grey? These questions have lain at the heart of Chinese art for centuries. In The Dark Matters, contemporary artists give them a new look and a new twist.
Among the highlights:
- Sky 2, Lin Yan’s dark but hopeful take on ink-and-brush painting
- Grinding, a fiercely meticulous, perfectly pointless labour of “insanity” by Yang Mushi
- Cosmic Dance—Gravity, metal artist Nick Dong’s levitating ode to the unexplainable.
The Dark Matters opens on Wednesday, March 8. From then on, the Gallery will be open as usual from Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
