Sep 25-Nov 4: Kairos of Inertia

Departing somewhat from the visual assault that was his dense and assertive Gravity of Eyes series, Guan Yinfu has taken a different path in this exhibition, albeit through similar terrain. The paint on the canvas has loosened its grip, acquired a certain nonchalance; what was once charged with a vigorous intensity is now slow, its persistent transformative flow now held in check by a leisurely inertia, which nonetheless languidly impels the colours and shapes on the canvas to connect, converse and jostle for space. An ancient oriental aesthetic infuses the way these elements play off one another, though here it is the material itself that spontaneously emanates this peculiar quality by way of its unrestrained and natural presence. The inertia in these works by Guan Yinfu, as well as embodying languor as a form of artistic practice, is also a response to the fast-paced and confoundingly capricious predicament in which we find ourselves – an attempt from the depths of the soul to interrogate and change it.

Oct 2: Sunday Screening: Manhattan

A tribute to Woody Allen’s favourite city, the film was delicately shot in black and white, depicting the city’s story against the backdrop of the beloved New York City landscape.

The heart of the movie lies in the depiction of the fragmentation, isolation and emptiness that come with the city life. As Allen’s Isaac continues to criticize the superficiality and selfishness the city life embodies, the movie’s essence is still in the pursuit of the ideal.
