For our second participation to Art Basel Hong Kong we highlight some of the gallery's key artists with historical works by Carla Accardi, Suzan Frecon and Louise Lawler along with late work by John Baldessari and recent paintings by Jean-Luc Moulène. These five important artists embody the essence of the gallery's programming with emphasis on lyrical minimalism and conceptual practices.
Building on last year's presentation of mid-career Belgian artists we show new and recent works by Pieter Vermeersch and Edith Dekyndt. Pieter Vermeersch's work deploys painting as an instrument to create images oscillating between abstraction and representation. From the canvas to the wall, his colour gradients are the result of a meticulous and almost mathematical process by which the artist becomes a kind of human printer. Edith Dekyndt works across video, sculpture, installation, drawing and sound to address timeless concerns of light, time and space in the most subtle and delicate manner. Throughout her work she manifests a profound interest in physical phenomena and ephemeral incidents by paying close attention to materials and their transient nature.
Finally this year is the opportunity to bring forth the work of newly represented artist Liam Everett. Everett's abstract mixed-media paintings and sculptures explore the process of art making through the gestures and movements of his own body. Inspired by dance, theatre, and philosophy, his work reflects his labor-intensive process, which involves building-up and erasing layers of pigment using caustic and everyday substances such as salt, lemon juice, and alcohol.
