2022 Residency at The Shophouse
12 October, 2022 — 27 November, 2022
A door and an art, the two may seem unassociated, but both function as an entrance - to a building or the mind of an artist.
After the success of our first artist in residence exhibition “DOOR" in July 2021, THE SHOPHOUSE is pleased to present “DOOOR”, a 50-day tripartite conversation between artists, audience, and space, featuring Hong Kong artist Amy Tong, Elaine Chiu and Tang Kwong San. Each artist takes over a floor of the gallery, where they will create unique works in response to their surroundings. The exhibition aims to facilitate active observations and meaningful dialogue within the community.
The OPEN STUDIO of “DOOOR” aims to delve into each of the three artist’s creative processes whilst simultaneously displacing them from their accustomed creative environments. An interactive experience blurring the intimate relationship between artists, audience and gallery.
The EXHIBITION takes place after our OPEN STUDIO, act as a celebration and showcase of the on-site works created by the artists.
