🌪🌿 In the eye of the storm with Trevor Yeung @plantertrevor
in Paris. Drop by until May 25 to discover ‘Typhoon No.9’
In September 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut hit Hong Kong, a city located in the most active tropical cyclone basin on the planet. The Hong Kong Government warned its citizens to "prepare for the worst" as the Hong Kong Observatory issued the severe storm a Signal No. 10.
🌪 The Hong Kong Tropical Cyclone Warning Signals are each rated 1 of 8 types. Typhoon signal No. 9 is a "developing" category with No. 10 being the highest on the register. It is a warning to stay indoors and to tape up your windows with a cross of masking tape.
🌪 Acknowledging the intensity of this experience Yeung notes that this exhibition is not concerned with ferocity nor destruction, recovery, or prevention, but is more responsive to the individual's relation to internment.
🍃 Yeung's exhibition describes a feeling of weakness and of helplessness in deciding one's own future. The works speak of a type of mourning, a lament for something one is soon to lose.
🌿 No stranger to using the natural world as a medium, Yeung has become known for his many living artworks including microsystems of plant and animal-based works at institutions including @wittedewith__
in Rotterdam; the 10th @shanghaibiennale
in Hong Kong.
We were happy to show some works of the artist presented by @blindspotgallery
in 2016 while the artist was in residence in Paris.
Trevor Yeung was born 1988, Dongguan, China. He lives and works in Hong Kong. His work is in the collections of @kadistkadist
, Paris and San Francisco and @mplusmuseum
, Hong Kong.
