PRIME

10 Chancery Lane Gallery established 2001 by Katie de Tilly in Hong Kong. Originally from the U.S., de Tilly was taken by the important developments of art in the Asia-Pacific region when she moved there in 1994. The gallery focuses on art from China, South-Asia, Southeast-Asia, and Australia. With a strong interest in the early art movements we are proud to present two of China's pioneers Wang Keping and Huang Rui of the Stars Art Group 1979, the first free expression art movement in the Post-Mao era. Hong Kong artist Frog King Kwok is a conceptual and performance artist who has been breaking boundaries since the late 1960s. The Frog King Kwok Calligraphy Shop, first shown at the New Museum New York in 1992, acts as an interactive work with audience participation. Having invented a unique form of writing termed “Sandwich Font” combining Chinese and English, he makes original calligraphy for the visitors. A sort of touristic kiosk that could be found around the world is, in fact, a spontaneous artwork that continues to grow and change throughout the interactive process. Frog King believes that Art is life and life is art Each moment is a performance. And the Frog King Kwok Calligraphy Shop is a space of numerous possibilities. With an experimental spirit, Frog King’s own life is a continuous performance piece. His work reminds us that art is a living subject not a dead object.
