Look Left - Look Right
by Pao Galleries
Location: Pao Galleries
Artist(s): Xenia HAUSNER
Date: 6 Jun - 28 Jun 2014

Hong Kong Arts Centre presents contemporary Austrian artist Xenia Hausner’s first exhibition in Hong Kong ­­ – Look Left – Look Right: Solo Exhibition of Xenia Hausner this June. The exhibition features Hausner’s recently completed large-scale paintings, with Portraitures base on femininity dominates the oeuvre of Hausner. Through the artist’s untamed brushwork, relationships and stories are brought to life amidst intense colours and imposing compositions, reflecting her ideology towards themes of loneliness, injury, and love.

Many of her paintings incorporate her past travels and journeys in Hong Kong and in greater Asia. In fact, the title of exhibition “Look Left – Look Right” comprises words gleaned from traffic signage printed on roads in Hong Kong. The exhibition will be a celebration of Hong Kong 160th anniversary of diplomatic relation with Austria, as well as a perpetuation of the HKAC’s ongoing efforts in engaging our community with contemporary art from all over the world.
