hong kong: light stream

© pearl lam galleries

we've always been fascinated by jenny holzer's work, which to us always seems to be such a multi-faceted reflection of current times. holzer is one of the most respected contemporary artists working today, and known for large-scale projections of thought-provoking texts on a wide range of topics. currently on at pearl lam galleries in hong kong is light stream, the artist's very first exhibition in the city and which presents a mix of both new and vintage work. on display are the following works: truisms [1977–79], living [1980–82], and survival [1983–85], and presenting two of those for the first time ever in chinese. especially for the show holzer selected phrases from the aforementioned three works and has projected them on stone benches. each of the works incorporate different topics and perspectives. the centrepiece of the exhibition is the artist’s largest led gallery work to date, which comprises over 25 led elements [on through nov 2]. location: pedder building, 12 pedder street, unit 601-605 [central].
