Contemporary by Angela Li is proud to present Liang Manqi’s solo exhibition “Imaginary Practice”. After successfully launching her space project at Art Central Hong Kong in 2015, she brings seven oil paintings and a site-specific space installation ─ Kate’s Space ─ to her first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.
In her works, Liang focuses on how space, media and colour convert their relationships between real and virtual contexts in polygonal dimensions. Hovering between abstract and nonabstract, rational and irrational, one seems unable to define her works from a conventional point of view. She creates via her cogitation a series of visual stimulations in the form of individual objects and mindsets, exploring the language embedded within these presentations.
In this exhibition, Liang creates a site-specific space installation, incorporating wall mural, paintings and three-dimensional objects in the gallery space. The installation forms a mind-like dimension, beckoning the audience to enter the realm of dynamics, experimentation and imagination.
Liang Manqi (b.1986, Guangdong, China) graduated from the department of Art Education at the China Academy of Art in 2009 and obtained a Master of Fine Art degree from the CDK (Chinesisch-Deutshe Kunstakademie) project, a joint degree programme of the University of the Arts, Berlin and the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, in 2012. She currently lives and works in Shanghai.
