Art Basel Hong Kong 2013: Halley Cheng Solo Exhibition

23 - 26 May 2013

For the upcoming Art Basel HK 2013 held from 23rd to 26th May, Galerie Ora-Ora is most excited to showcase Hong Kong Young Artist 2012 Award winner Halley Cheng's latest plywood painting installation series. Even at his young age, Halley has been defined as one of the most innovative artists in Hong Kong, winning numerous prizes and continuously impressing art critics and audiences with his original and distinctive skills and ideas.


Living in a modern city like Hong Kong, Halley recognizes that people's perceptions are at times stereotyped. In view of this, for Art Basel HK 2013, Halley creates an installation based on his contemporary ink drawings and brings us into awareness of our mode of perception. As he draws without draft, intuitively he starts his painting by one character and develops into numerous objects, figures and plants. The artworks therefore become a psychological brain map of Halley's, a representation of his encoding and decoding of self, space, as well as subjectivity.
