Emily Allchurch: ‘Mirrored Cities’
23 October – 28 November 2020
Established in 1999 by German-born Karin Weber, and now in its 21st year, Karin Weber Gallery is one of Hong Kong’s oldest contemporary art galleries. Situated on Aberdeen Street, in the heart of SoHo, the gallery presents a year-round program of curated exhibitions, talks, and collector events. A unique network of partners based in London, Mumbai and Berlin allows it to source emerging and established contemporary art from around the world. Karin Weber Gallery is equally passionate about presenting works by local artists. The gallery assists artists through exhibitions, art fairs, and residency programs throughout the world. Small in size, yet global in outlook, Karin Weber Gallery is one of Hong Kong’s truly international boutique galleries.
Karin Weber Gallery is proud to present a selection of gallery artists ranging from emerging to mid career on LACA. All are East Asian, or embrace Asian themes in their individual practice, which covers a diverse range of mediums, ranging from ceramics to photo collage and painting.
Karin Weber Gallery is excited to announce British artist Emily Allchurch’s second solo show in Hong Kong.
Two years in the making, ’Mirrored Cities’ draws parallels between the ancient trading port of Venice, Italy with its historical and contemporary counterpart locations such as Xi’an, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Fenhuang in mainland China, the beginning and end points of the ancient Silk Road. In this new series, Allchurch engages with topics such as globalization, mass tourism and trade, searching for synergies and similarities — rather than contrasts and differences — between historically ‘Western’ and ‘Eastern’ locations.
