Yvon Lambert’s Project Space in Chelsea, New York, presents Tsang Kin-Wah. Tsang Kin-Wah lives and works in Hongkong. The works presented at Yvon Lambert Project Space New York center around sex as one of the motivations of human beings. The works on display are to a large extent text-based. “In the main room text on the walls is intermittendly illuminated by two lights. The second room features wallpapers and paintings. The exhibition will consist of floral patterns of text and paintings mingled with rhythmic pulses of light…The walls of the second gallery have been covered with traditional Chinese lotus patterns in soothing blue and pink, a pattern that repeats in accompanying paintings. While the lotus flower is closely associated with Buddhism in the East to symbolize purity, upon closer inspection Tsang’s flowers spell out pornographic texts. …Tsang Kin-Wah (b.1976) was born in China and is a graduate of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Camberwell College of Arts at the London Institute.” (excerpts from the press release). Tip: Have a close look at the paintings that seem to merge with the wallpaper – there’s not only text and patterns. Yvon Lambert New York Project Space, opening reception, September 14, 2007.
