Red-White-Blue fabric, first appeared in the 1960s, was used as a cladding for the scaffolding at building sites. It was durable and waterproof, therefore, it was later used for producing plastic bags. Though red-white-blue fabric is generally considered to be tawdry, it is a metaphor for the spirit of Hong Kong from Stanley’s point of view:
is existence, participation, devotion and commitment.
is perseverance, diligence and endurance.
likes the Hong Kong people of 1960s and 1970s…
Lucie Chang Fine Arts is proud to announce for this winter, we are presenting the exhibition “on hong kong // anothermountainman solo 2022” by anothermountainman (Stanley Wong), which will bring together the long-running redwhiteblue collection, including the new series “seeing words in hong kong / redwhiteblue // words talking / self talking /”. On top of that, showcasing classic creations, sculptures “redwhiteblue / back to future” and photographs “painting by god”, “to begin with, there’s no matter” and “scavenging / existing in respect” alongside. He translates characteristics of the city into various art projects with the technique, silk screen on canvas, to address a fresh viewpoint with perceptual experience in response to today, the uniqueness of Hong Kong. Moreover, the promotion of well-being and social values.
In corresponding to this exhibition, he utilizes his works to infect and reinvert the space, referencing the ubiquitous Hong Kong fabric as well as his origins. The artist brings his passion for photography and various creative mediums into the space with a strong focus on social issues. "redwhiteblue" is like the HK spirit that lies behind the material- resilience, and adaptability. Over the past two decades, he gained international awareness with his ‘red, white and blue’ series that promotes the ‘positive spirit of Hong Kong’, which he presented at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 representing Hong Kong.
