Instinc presents an exhibition by a group of upcoming emerging artists from Hong Kong for the first time.
‘From inside of the outside‘ is about contradiction form sides, boundaries and circles, each owning their unique believes, views and visions, that lead to diverging attitudes, voices and actions.
From all sides, there exists an ‘outside’ and an ‘inside’. Depending on where one stands, the outside of someone could be the inside of one’s opponent. Or the other way round.
The inevitable existence of such makes life more complicated than it already is. The three artists intend to begin a discourse with the audience about ‘sides’, to arouse awareness towards one’s position (and stance), his relationship with (physical and mental) space, as well as the fine line that create the boundaries.
This exhibition features digital prints, video installation, drawings as well as oil paintings.
