SMS and its Enemy
by Hanart TZ Gallery
Location: Hanart TZ Gallery
Artist(s): WU Shan Zhuan
Date: 24 May - 21 Jun 2011

Hanart TZ Gallery is proud to present Wu Shanzhuan, one of the most influential conceptual artists from the ’85 New Wave Art Movement, in “SMS and its Enemy by Wu Shanzhuan” as our re-opening show that leads to a new chapter for us. In this exhibition, Wu will share with us for the first time his “SMS & its Enemy” which consists of 101 pieces of drawings created between 2000 and 2005 and also a collaborative work “Fielding” (2011) with Inga Svala Thórsdóttir, a triptych with the notion of perspective and projection, ‘Perfect Brackets’ within a rectangle.

Wu’s investigations of art and the role of the artist reflect a persistent concern with ontological issues of art.    Since 1986, his “Red Humour” series (1986), “Red Humour International” series (1990), “Tourist Information” series (1992), and years of intensive research in co-operation with Inga Svala Thórsdóttir since 1993, all reflect this process of contemplation and questioning.

“Shoudao is an ideal physical distance to any desire sent.”

Artists reception on 24 May 2011 from 1pm to 7pm.
Re-opening Ribbon-cutting Ceremony to be officiated by Sir David Tang, KBE at 1.30pm at 407 Pedder Building, 12 Pedder Street, Central.
A new book on the artists (But Still Red) will be launched in Hong Kong at the opening.
Exhibition until 21 June 2011.
