Artist-in-Residence at Pimary
24 Nov 2016 - 27 Feb 2017
Opening Reception with the artists: 3 Dec 2016 (Sat) 3-7pm
Venue: Pimary, No. 25 Lo Tsz Tin Tsuen, Tai Mei Tuk, Tai Po, Hong Kong
Opening Hours: Monday, Thursday to Sunday 11-7pm
Pimary is excited to present “Deconstructing Landscapes” by the Scottish sculptor Kirsteen Pieterse and the Australian artist Richard Lipp as our resident artists from November 24, 2016 to January 16, 2017
During this artist residency period, Kirsteen will draw from the spectacular surrounding mountainous landscape in Tai Po and translate it into a series of works. The referential starting point of her current practice is the San-shui school of Chinese landscape painting. The works made will aspire to feel closely connected to the peaceful atmosphere of the Pimary location yet retain a sense of proximity to the engineered reality of the city.
Richard continues to explore the landscape from an emotion driven perspective, creating exposures that shed light on his relationship with himself and the environments he is drawn to explore during his first project in Hong Kong, combining photography, film and music in a mixed media concentration of work. Themes of nature deconstructing man altered landscapes and man deconstructing natural landscapes will be approached through his unique exploratory method and emotion driven practice of capturing things that can’t be seen, but instead felt.
