HONGLEE CURATOR

We are an international art agency currently working with Paris and London galleries and artists. We act as a bridge between artists and galleries, and we initiated more than 30 different exhibitions both in Paris and London since the year 2017, which was a great opportunity to introduce artists' works to the European public. Our role is also to help connect European galleries or European artists who are interested in the Asiatic art market.


In a word, we could say that our agency is a “moving gallery”. It does not remain in one place, but it keeps planning exhibitions and introducing artists to partner galleries located in Paris, London, Montreal, New-York, Seoul, Tokyo and Taiwan, while carefully taking into consideration the work of the artists and the specificities of the galleries, in the unique style of HongLee.

    Lee.K & Cho Hui-Chin

    20 Aug 2020 – 05 Sep 2020

    Lee.K “I do not want to reply to indelicate questions in the world. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t draw mouths.” Denial of Language: The mouth, the only human body part that communicates by language, can control human feelings in different ways. LEE K’s artwork is based on his idea that the properties of the mouth imply loss of feeling, lack of communication, misapprehension and broken heart caused by language. Damaged emotions from denial of the real signification of the mouth are artificially expressed in his two-dimensional images. The feelings and emotions at some moments in the artist’s life have been accumulated and congealed as the stigma of the mouth in his images. The reason for distortion of the shape of the mouth in his artwork is defined as “Denial of Language”. “Pain which cannot be told, pain which we cannot tell, and glorifying the feeling of a person who experiences extreme anger with a metaphor of a plaster statue.” Cho Hui-Chin Artist Cho Hui-Chin is a resist-destiny female artist suffering from the distorted world and enjoying doing distorted artworks. Her grotesque yet serene art works explore the existence between life and death, investigate the darkest humanities, and reveal the fetish. She works across painting and sculpture and with deeply symbolic materials, which she says could be asscociated with « life once lived. » Visuals and sounds, artists and emotions link as inspiration and provide experimental reference : Joseph Cornell’s three-dimensional spatial arrangements and white noise, cats purring and Louise Bourgeois, pleasure and Hannah Hoch, acting outrageously and researching James Ensor.

    Panta Rhei - Everything flows

    10 Jun 2020 – 20 Jun 2020

    'Panta Rhei' is an antient Greek phrase by Heraclitus that means 'everything flows'. We as human beings and the world around us are in constant motion, in the process of flow and change. And our ability to adapt to the world that changes, and our ability to change the world when we change ourself make our existance a wonderful masterpiece. The whole our life is the work of art that is constantly in the flow, changing its appearence, ideas, materials, and colors. Every artist in this exhibition could capture the 'flow', the change of their inner world, ideas and the world around us. They present these changes in their unique way, they speak in the laguages that you will understand if you immerse yourself in the experience of reading their artwork. Everything flows, everything changes indeed, but the desire, the need to create and the love of art are somethings eternal. Curated by Oksana Kononchuk

    CHO HUI-CHIN

    10 Aug 2020 – 16 Aug 2020

    I was raised in a multicultural country, the Taiwanese background deeply influenced by Chinese aes-thetics and the culture surrounding Japanese anime and manga, all of which have shaped the enticing space of imagination to me; my main subject matter is figures, and I have a predilection for baby fig-ures. my childhood was surrounded by the Japanese manga culture which makes me become ob-sessed with "figure"; you can easily tell the figures which are anima-like around my works I often postulate that painting and sculpture are the same manifestation since they both depict ambigui-ty in concrete dimensions to me, and this ambiguity attains layers of symbolism and meaning, which could be conveyed through a variety of compositions and motifs. Material is an important aspect of my work, and animal by-products such as vintage and antique leather symbolise creatures that were sacrificed by humanity and represent an ambiguous existence between life and death. Through my work, I intend to reflect on conflicting phenomenon, namely the inevitable relationship between obsessions and humanity. If ‘indulgence’ is postulated to be an aspect of humanity, this means that ‘obsession’ is the human nature and part of human beings’ spiritual needs; the behaviour of being overly obsessed with gratification shows that our instinctive needs, in particular those associ-ated with the dark side of humanity such as desire, fetish, and obsession, are magnified excessively. My work assumes that all patterns, objects, motifs, colours and materials can be analysed, decon-structed and criticised in all their manifestations and forms. The binary opposition in my work repre-sents the dichotomies between a material’s initial form and the value/definition given to that material. My intention is to evoke hidden metaphors that refer to the relationship of certain materials to life and death: the artworks were once living creatures. Consequently, my work deconstructs the value of ma-teriality and addresses the dilemma of using vintage, antique, luxury or animal by-product materials. The patterns or motifs in my work can be deconstructed, and the behaviour of viewers who speculate about the materials is considered part of the work and completes the process of deconstructing the value/definition of materiality. As a result, my work is experimental deconstruction. It establishes a dialogue which is an inner equi-librium between rational analysis and sentimental interpretations. By exploring these responses, the processes of deconstruction could help each individual viewer form their own perceptions flow through my works and uncover their own opinions about desire, fetish, ambivalence, sadism and ob-session.

    13 Jul 2020 – 31 Jul 2020

    The Secret Garden is a collection of fictional portraits capturing the human individuality, soul and emotions. "Although my work is created with digital tools, I want my artwork to be real and about humanity. My images are created through photo manipulation, collage and digital painting, merging a complex of layers, textures and images that allow the figure to be more than what we see." - Diogo Landô Curated by Diogo Landô and Hong-Lee Curators.

    Artistic Voices

    31 May 2020 – 10 Jun 2020

    (EN) It is impossible to break off the relationship between an artist and his/her works. The artist expresses his feelings through his work. The public’s role is trying to reinterpret these feelings. Thus, creating a relation between the artist and the public so that they can communicate. Ryo Shimizu emphasises those famous artists who try promoting a pure art by the only way of marketing. He also highlights the famous artists’ attitude. Qiuchi Chen calls us out on our current society. As a Chinese national, he underlines the Chinese government’s attitude on social issues such as freedom, environment and war through the object. We hope that many of you will come to observe the work of Ryo Shimizu and Qiuchi Chen. (FR) Il est impossible de casser le lien entre un artiste et son oeuvre. L’artiste exprime ses sentiments à travers son travail. Le rôle du public est d’essayer de réinterpréter ces sentiments créant ainsi un lien entre l’artiste et le public. Au point que, par le biais de son oeuvre, l’artiste et le public finissent par communiquer. Ryo Shimizu met en avant ces artistes connus qui essaient de promouvoir un art pur par le seul biais du marketing. Il met également l’accent sur l’attitude des personnalités artistiques. Qiuchi Chen nous interpelle sur la société actuelle dans le monde. En tant que chinois, il met en exergue l’attitude du gouvernement chinois sur les nombreux sujets sociétaux tels que les libertés, l’environnement, la guerre par le biais de l’objet.
