Hong Kong SOHO
Hong Kong—Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present MICROCOSM/MACROCOSM, a group exhibition featuring works by five leading contemporary artists: Du Zhenjun, Sayaka Ishizuka, Li Tianbing, Hew Locke, and Ren Ri. Defined by ancient Greek philosophers, microcosm and macrocosm are two aspects of a theory used to describe the similarity and relations between human beings and the universe. Each exhibiting artist encapsulates an imaginary universe from macroscopic and microscopic perspectives in their unique methodologies and mediums.
“Art is a re-creation of the universe from a personal perspective; it offers man, in effect, a new reality to contemplate.” —Leonard Peikoff, 1991
