Hong Kong - Exhibition

Rachel Kneebone: Ovid in Exile

White Cube Hong Kong

27 May 201719 Aug 2017

This is the first solo show by the artist in Hong Kong after her monumental shows at Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
The exhibition features a series of drawings and sculptures which explore the themes of transformation and metamorphosis.
A new series of work investigates on themes from the poems of Ovid, exploring in particular ideas of evolution and desire, between the actual and the metaphorical, the real and the imagined and natural and modelled forms. Flowers, tendrils, body parts, spheres and more abstract elements are amassed and built up, appearing to merge and multiply, as if in a state of continuous flux or struggle.
