Experimental tak fibre on canvas works by the late Korean Dansaekhwa master Chung Chang-Sup are displayed in the artist’s premier solo exhibition in Hong Kong. Selected from his Meditation series, the canvases embody the spirituality, tactility and the ritualistic process involved.

In the spirit of Dansaekhwa, the late Korean artist Chung Chang-Sup’s oeuvre is characterised by the repetition of gestures and rumination over the materials. The exhibition entitled Meditation is the gallery’s third exhibition dedicated to the artist. Two shows of the same title were held in Galerie Perrotin’s Paris and New York locations respectively last year. The show runs from 3 November 2016 until 21 December 2016 at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong.
