Perrotin is pleased to present “So Near Yet So Far”, the first solo exhibition of the Chinese artist NI Youyu in Hong Kong. Showcasing 12 pieces, the exhibition gives a comprehensive view of the artist’s diverse creations. Ni Youyu’s practice does not apply demarcation to antiquity and modernity, nor does it concern itself with the task of reinventing paradigms – so the artist says. This principle is grounded in Ni’s studies at the Fine Arts College of Shanghai University, where he specialized in Chinese paintings. Whilst the genre emphasizes engagement with – or even resuscitation of – antiquity, Ni’s works are pivoted on the ways we can access the space between all temporalities and material objects as a repository of universal cognizance.
