In conversation: Elemental Equilibrium 對談: 五行平衡

  • Thu 7 July 2022
  • 7 – 8 pm

On the occasion of his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, artist Nicolas Party will be in conversation with art and culture journalist Aaina Bhargava to discuss his exploration into the complex and ever-changing relationship between man and nature, ‘sampling’ in the context of the confluence of sources he draws from, and the evolution of his distinctive aesthetic.

‘Nicolas Party. Red Forest’, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, is on view at Hauser & Wirth until 24 September. Party looks to the five elements of the material world as his starting point: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Comprised of 13 new pastel landscapes and portraits created specifically for this show, ‘Red Forest’ illuminates nature’s complex and often inextricable ties with humanity.

The Zoom talk will be conducted in English.
