Opera Gallery Grand Opening

The Hong Kong shores are no stranger to the technological tendrils of the Liu Dao collective. Having built a base in the form of the delectable island6 Hong Kong, our neighbours Opera Gallery want to come out and play.

The story of this artistic affair began at the Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair after a chance meeting with Ms Shirley Jablonksy, manager of Opera Gallery Hong Kong. Following this fortuitous twist of fate, Liu Dao was invited to feature at the Grand Opening exhibition, which commemorated Opera Gallery’s relocation and opening of a brand new exhibition space that spans 4 floors and with over 4,000 square feet which paves the platform for the hottest contemporary art on the market the island6 art collective have surely made themselves at home in this impressive space.

The magnetic, piercing eyes of “Crepusculum” were on hand to give art lovers something to stare at. Or indeed was it a question of whom is staring at whom? This elongated fragment of Liu Dao’s multimedia assemblage invites the viewer to question perspective and whether your perspective is the result of your own views or others.

Alongside “Crepusculum” was also exhibited the elusive fluttering of LED butterflies in “From Jingdezhen to Dresden” as well as the magical “A Wire With A View” which wields Liu Dao’s formula of dualities using the the historical institution of Chinese papercut (Jian Zhi 剪紙) whilst conjuring up a modern day LED figurine, capturing the appeal of a woman who can keep you dangling upon the thin line on which she treads.

Liu Dao featured at the Grand Opening Exhibition of Opera Gallery Hong Kong on March 7th 2013.
