Cheung Wai Sze, Rachel
05 Jan - 19 Jan 2022
Yrellag Gallery is delighted to present Subtle Equilibrium, a mini retrospective presentation of Hong Kong local ceramist and art educator Rachel Cheung, taking place between 5 – 19 January 2022. Comprising a wide range of Cheung’s signature works, this collection of work is reflective of her deep interest and research in materialism and the concept of Equilibrium, a signature and ongoing source of inspiration within her creation.
The show exemplifies the concept that Cheung has been preoccupied with since her university days—equilibrium and contrast. She combined the two concepts of contrast into a work, enlightening the importance of the concept of a balanced relationship. “In the middle of my Bachelor’s degree studies, I was interested in the physical equilibrium and balance of my clay forms,” explains Cheung. “They created intriguing and vulnerable states that struck viewers’ nerves and reminded me of human relationships.” By this exhibition, Cheung attempted to re-examine new perspectives, new feelings, new inspirations and more possibilities.
展覽體現了張氏從大學時代起就一直關注的概念——平衡與對比。 她將兩種截然不同的概念結合到一件作品中，啓發觀者瞭解兩者在平衡的關係上的重要性。 「在我的學士學位學習過程中，我對陶土形狀的物理平衡和平衡感興趣。」張解釋道。 「它們創造了有趣而脆弱的狀態，觸動了觀眾的神經，讓我想起了人們之間的關係。」 張試圖通過這次展覽重新審視新的視角、新的感受、新的靈感以及更多的可能性。
