Pop Rock is a group exhibition that starting from the rock of scholars, creates a dialogue between high and low cultures, past and present. This exhibition is composed of 13 artists from Hong Kong and Mainland China, focusing on different explorations and perspectives of artists in different media-ink, photography, oil painting, sculpture, installation and video.
As rocks have been admired for their mystery and natural beauty since ancient times, they are still objects of inspiration and curiosity for artists and collectors today. The abstract form of the rock helps to explore and explain the infinite possibilities. Standing between natural objects and ready-made products enhanced by human hands, this rock also forces us to think about the boundary between culture and nature.
The exhibition takes a disrespectful and playful approach to this classic symbol, reflecting the idea that the objects we really care about should be kept close and cherished.
