Hong Kong—Pearl Lam Galleries is delighted to present Acts of Transgression, featuring works by nine contemporary artists: Andy Dewantoro (b. 1973), Inci Eviner (b. 1956), Ren Ri (b. 1984), Carlos Rolón/Dzine (b. 1970), Yinka Shonibare MBE (b. 1962), Sinta Tantra (b. 1979), Thukral & Tagra (b. 1976 & b. 1979), Joana Vasconcelos (b. 1971), and John Young (b. 1956).
Transgression suggests the action of going beyond a set limit or boundary. This group exhibition gathers nine artists who reveal the otherness of their identities and convey a collective desire for transcendence and empowerment in a variety of mediums and artistic languages. Each exhibiting artist transcends established narratives related to diverse subjects such as culture, identity, material, technology, and way of viewing art. Creating a dialogue among these artists, the exhibition engages audiences on multiple levels in the hope that they too will experience the breaking down of boundaries.
