Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables Ocula Conversation Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables

Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

The Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima has numbers; he paints them on the folds of bright kimonos, he draws them in sketchbooks, he fills walls, floors, pools of water and piles of coal with glowing numerals. His shirts are tailor made with numbers...

Zhang Huan At Carriageworks, Sydney Ocula Report Zhang Huan At Carriageworks, Sydney 31 Jan 2015 : Stella Rosa McDonald for Ocula

Standing before Zhang Huan’s Sydney Buddha—considering the grace and serenity of the five-meter-tall Buddha’s decidedly feminine repose—I can’t escape the fact that the foyer of Carriageworks, in which the Buddha has been recently installed, stinks. Something has died here and then dried in the summer sun.

Something Borrowed: The 19Th Biennale Of Sydney Part Ii Ocula Report Something Borrowed: The 19Th Biennale Of Sydney Part Ii 8 Apr 2014 : Stella Rosa McDonald for Ocula

The curatorial frame of the 19th Biennale of Sydney, that artistic imagination and desire are the seeds from which art is made, is so transparent it is almost invisible.
