Pearl Lam Galleries, one of Asia’s leading galleries with spaces in Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai, will present works by Chun Kwang Young (b. 1944, South Korea), Revital Cohen and Tuur van Balen (b. 1981, Israel and Belgium, respectively), Leonardo Drew (b. 1961, USA), Suki Seokyeong Kang (b. 1977, South Korea), Antony Micallef (b. 1975, UK), José Patrício (b. 1960, Brazil), Pino Pinelli (b. 1938, Italy), Qian Jiahua (b. 1987, China), Ren Ri (b. 1984, China), Carlos Rolón/Dzine (b. 1970, USA), Su Xiaobai (b. 1949, China), Yang Yongliang (b. 1980, China), Zhou Yangming (b. 1971, China), and Zhu Jinshi (b. 1954, China) at its main stand.
Located in the main exhibition hall, but separate from the Galleries’ main stand, will be a special project by Chinese artist Ren Ri (b. 1984). Ren Ri’s art is signified by the very special medium he uses: beeswax, for which he has received and been nominated for several awards. Considered an unusual and difficult material to work with, Ren’s understanding of bee psychology and nature assist him in his creative process. He works in collaboration with insects to create his mesmerizing sculptures, five of which will be shown set in acrylic cases.
“Pearl Lam Galleries enjoyed a very good reception at last year’s edition of Expo Chicago, which was our first art fair in the United States. As one of the most prominent Asian galleries to be presenting work at the fair, we’re delighted to be showcasing work by a huge range of artists of the highest standard from Asia, Europe, and the United States, including the work of Carlos Rolón/Dzine, who of course hails from Chicago.”
