Our Tears Shall Fly Off Into Outer Space by Chiho Aoshima

Art Perrotin, Tsim Sha Tsui

Fans of Chiho Aoshima are in luck as the acclaimed Japanese artist brings an exciting selection of works to Perrotin Hong Kong! Even if you're not familiar with the name, you're likely to be no stranger to the artist's wide-eyed avatar, Moimoi. Spirits, goddesses, nymphs, plants, and even buildings, Aoshima's fantastical images gives its audience a window into her imagination. For the exhibition, the gallery has transformed into an otherworldly land featuring digital animations, sculptures, and hand-painted works.

Paris and Beyond by Ilse Bing

Art

Featuring over 100 works by Ilse Bing, one of the most influential female photographers who ultimately enabled Paris in becoming the centre of modern photography in the 1930s, the exhibition captures the eternal beauty of Paris. Visitors will discover a beautiful range of vintage prints taken at the height of Bing’s career, while the rest of the collection reflects on the drastic evolution of her spirit after World War II. Held at F11 Foto Museum, the exhibition is a tribute to Bing’s dramatic journey to self-fulfilment and subsequently her sojourns seeking new artistic ideas and expressions.

A Little Too Real: An Enchanted Dream by Vann

Art K11 Art Mall, Tsim Sha Tsui

Ever wondered what your living room would look like if you were – say, trippin' balls? Well, now you can find out exactly what that looks like, at chi K11 art space’s new surrealist exhibit, A Little Too Real: An Enchanted Dream by award-winning local jewellery designer Vann Kwok.

Divided into five experience zones, the exhibition will take viewers on a visual journey where reality appears distorted. Take a snap against the crystal-spangled shower curtains, stroll through a holographic 'rabbit hole', or hang out with a multi-coloured yeti on the sofa. Everything you can imagine comes to life as furniture morphs into art pieces, jewellery turns into furniture, and art pieces become jewellery. It's an otherworldly (and very much Instagrammable) experience you don't want to miss!

Alone in the Wilderness by Virginia Overton

Art White Cube, Central

Alone in the Wilderness is New York-based artist Virginia Overton's first solo exhibition in Asia. Salvaging materials that are part ready-mades and altering their purpose and function, Overton's sculptures are made from objects and elements she comes across in her immediate environment. With this new collection of sculpture and works on paper, Overton explores the histories embedded in these materials, as well as the narratives it takes on as they are given a new lease of life in an alternative context.

Pearl Rolling Across the Floor by Liang Ban

Art De Sarthe Gallery, Aberdeen

Featuring a new series of works by Beijing-based contemporary artist Liang Ban, Pearl Rolling Across the Floor captures how mobile devices have influenced humanity and the modern society as a whole. Featuring video works as well as sculptural and photographic installations, the exhibition reflects on our use of mobile devices and how they are taking control of its users as, what the artist calls, a 'possessive technology'.
