• PHIL AKASHI SOLO SHOW IN HONG KONG

    posted by on Monday, October 26, 2015

    The Directors of Fabrik Gallery are delighted to present "Rings on Fire" by Belgian-born, Hong Kong resident Phil Akashi.

    In the Rings on Fire trilogy series (2014-15), Phil Akashi engages the viewer through his optimistic, yet nomadic reflections of the meaning of marriage and it’s relation to happiness. To explore and question the contemporary challenges of marriage, the artist employs a collection of traditional Asian seals to imprint and rejuvenate the functionality of the Double Happiness character "囍” commonly used in China as a decoration and symbol of marriage.

    Phil Akashi is a Belgian-born Hong Kong based artist. He explores and reinvents the functionality of traditional Asian seals with a broad range of media. His arts practice involves using the power of language with a trans-cultural and conceptual approach to question the contemporary world around him. As a result he forges a new artistic language that links East and West and places the past in the service of the present. Phil Akashi has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Belgium, in China and in the United States. His artworks are in private collections worldwide and have been featured in international publications such as the Guggenheim, Momatalks, Artribune, Fine Art International, RollingStone, Juxtapoz and Blouin Artinfo. 

    Exhibition dates: October 28th to November 27th, 2015

    Fabrik Gallery, 1102 Nam Wo Hong Building, 148 Wing Lok Street, Sheung Wan
