Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to announce that Tromarama, Wong Ping and Samson Young will be participating in CoBo Social’s first ‘Art in the Bar’ event in Hong Kong. On the 14 September, 11 bars and restaurants across Hong Kong will be transformed by video art installations and performances from some of Asia’s most exciting artists.
Tromarama’s work, which engages with contemporary notions of the virtual and real, focusing on social engagement and a humorous analysis of contemporary culture, the trio will be presenting 3 works, including ‘TING*’ (2008), ‘On And On’ (2015), ‘Pilgrimage’ (2011). Wong Ping’s work sits at the threshold between the real and the absurd, he will be presenting ‘Who’s the Daddy’ (2016), an animation piece follows the story of a sexually repressed man and his journey into an unconventional fatherhood. As a sound artist, Samson Young pushes the boundaries of his medium, creating heavily-researched works exploring personal and national identity, war and literature, he will be presenting ‘Muted Lion Dance’ (2014).
