Paradoxes: Episode I – Inaugural Exhibition of Gallery Psypedia
Gallery Psypedia is pleased to present the Inaugural Joint Exhibition - Paradoxes: Episode I – the “Being” - the first version of a series of group exhibitions featuring new and established Hong Kong artists. The concept of Paradox has a long history across cultures and disciplines, which enfolds the ambiguity and absurdity in different daily life events - immediate as constructing oxymoronic phrases in a conversation, or sophisticated as the philosophical and psychological debate of rationality versus emotion in human behavior.
The first edition of the exhibition series features three Hong Kong young artists who are dedicated to disclose the paradoxical happenings related to their self-identities and existence - the “being”, which triggered their thought-provoking gestures in art. Ranging from paintings to photography, be it unconsciously conscious, sanely insane, unreasonably reasonable, or rationally irrational, the artists speculate their surroundings with self-contradiction and absurdity, in hope of reaching a closest truth with the inherent antagony of human conditions in our time.
