ShanghART Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the 2024 edition of Art Basel Hong Kong with a compelling presentation of 21 selected artists’ captivating works at booth 1C07. The exhibition includes a variety of paintings, sculptures, installations, and photography created by ShanghART's international and intergenerational artists between 1996, the year ShanghART was founded till now.

In the past three years, both nature and society have experienced significant changes and challenges, wars and environmental transformations have disrupted what appeared to be stable. Jiang Pengyi's latest work "Erosion" could serve as an overarching theme for discussing how individuals could navigate and adapt to this intricate and ever-changing deluge. The artists from different generations offer different perspectives on whether to resist or tolerate today's environment.

Highlights in ShanghART's Art Basel Hong Kong presentation include an evocative abstract painting by the late Shanghai artist Yu Youhan, a leading pioneer of Chinese abstract painting and one of the most important and influential artists in China of the past decades. Yu Youhan’s "two circles" artwork showcased in the center of the booth embodies a sense of peace and inclusion. The work combines multiple perspectives to explore the structure of cultural identity in China through various pictorial techniques. Yu's paintings are widely recognized and captivating, having had a significant impact on the art scene while inspiring a younger generation of artists.

Leading Chinese artist Zeng Fanzhi, who recently concluded his solo exhibition Old and New (Paintings 1988-2023) at Museum of Art Pudong in Shanghai, which was visited by almost 260’000 people, presents a masterly rendered still life oil painting "Pomegranates". Zeng Fanzhi practised still life throughout the different stages of his career, studying composition, light and brush strokes by playing with objects that did not move or speak.

Another internationally renowned artist Yang Fudong showcases a black-and-white photograph named "First Spring". The theatrical photo work was created in 2010 but is only now shown for the first time to the public. Additionally, in the evenings, co-commissioned by Art Basel and M+ and presented by UBS, Yang Fudong's film "Sparrow on the Sea", shot in Hong Kong in January 2024, will be projected onto the façade of M+ during the Art Basel Hong Kong.

Robert Zhao Renhui, who represents Singapore at the Venice Biennale this year, exhibits a beautiful and scary photo of three Myna birds he discovered in Singapore affected by human activity. Robert’s works often show how man and nature influence and erode each other to varying degrees, often in romantic and poetic forms. His works are in the collection of the Tate and many other museums.

Jacques-Louis David's super manly heroic painting "The Oath of the Horatii” was the inspiration for Tang Da Wu’s "Poretii's Oath", an installation of three simple saw blades trapped in a brick, precariously balancing on the edge of an iron table (presented in the front corner of ShanghART’s booth). Tang Da Wu could be called the doyen of contemporary art, especially performance art, in Singapore. Born in 1943, Tang Da Wu studied in London in the 70s and 80s (Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths) before returning to Singapore and quietly developed his art and influenced many young artists over the following decades.

Li Shan was one of the most radical participants in the Chinese 85’s New Wave Art Movement. He is also a pioneer of Bio-art, dreaming about radically improving humans and what else lives on this earth by fusing different creatures, genetically or just with his brush. 

Liang Shaoji has for many decades been "co-operating" with silkworms to create his artworks. The calm "Planar Tunnel" on display at ShanghART’s booth is a sample of this human-animal co-operation. In recent years Liang Shaoji got interested in working with glass. ShanghART will show "Ice Bed" which not only reinterprets Liang Shaoji’s "Silk Beds" (“Beds/Nature Series No.10”, exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 1999) but also prompts us to rethink our relationship with the environment, industry and death.

Xu Zhen® is an artist who is impossible to categorize. We show his latest work. An ancient jade piglet shaped like an internet emoji smiley face painted using traditional Chinese ink on silk fabric.
