Fictional Recoveries
by Pearl Lam Galleries
Location: Pearl Lsm Galleries
Date: 8 Sep - 30 Sep 2012

Fictional Recoveries at Pearl Lam Fine Art presents video, paintings, and installations by five leading Asian emerging artists: Morgan Wong (Hong Kong), Ng Joan Kiat (Singapore), Li Ming (Hangzhou). Wang Zhibo (Hangzhou), and Shang Yixin (Hangzhou). The show investigates the artists' genuine intention of propagating their ideals to a broader public and the survival strategies they use to recuperate from constant rejection by society. Curator David Chan comments, "Fictional Recoveries explores our expectations of young artists. I believe despite a failed avant-garde movement, we still desire to use art as a catalyst for changing our society, and young artists are very much at the forefront of trying to achieve that noble mission."

About Pearl Lam Galleries Pearl Lam started exhibiting and promoting Chinese contemporary art and design in 1993 in Hong Kong. Currently. Pearl Lam Galleries consists of two spaces in Shanghai: a Fine Art Gallery and a Special Project Space: as well as the recently-launched gallery in Hong Kong. Pearl Lam Galleries will also open a new design gallery in Shanghai and a major space at Gillman Barracks in Singapore in 2013.

Presenting an exhibition programme of the highest quality, Pearl Lam Galleries has championed the promotion and re-evaluation of the philosophy, perceptions and aesthetics of Chinese art for almost 20 years. From an early stage, popular touring shows, such as Awakening: La France Mandarine, the French influence on Chinese Art (2004-5), characterised the exhibition program with their intercultural dialogue and dynamic work by international artists from established and emerging markets. Exhibiting Chinese artists such as Lan Zhenghui, Li Tianbing, Shao Fan, Wang Dangling, Zhang Huan, Zheng Chongbin, and Zhu Jinshi reinterpret traditions, fuse cross-cultural influences and examine China today. The exhibition program also presents major solo exhibitions of international artists stimulating cross-cultural dialogue and cultural exchange between China and the rest of the world.
