Seven artists from Hong Kong, Under.Line; Quartair, The Hague

A line could be described as the tiniest visible row of particles.

These particles can be anything, they may even be words.

As such a line is both an abstract idea and an abstract visualisation of that idea.

Seven artists from Hong Kong (Tsang Chui Mei, Jamsen Law, Julvian Ho, Lee Suet Ying, Vee Leong, Li Tzimei and Tap Chan) have made a show at Quartair in which different philosophies about the line come together in one installation.

The works – some of which are being developed on the spot – can be seen individually, but the curator Jamsen Law and the other artists clearly stress the idea of one multidimensional installation with drawing, painting, light and sound.

It is an interesting show but a very short running one, tomorrow (Saturday) will be its last day.

The exhibition was first staged last year in Hong Kong, and will later this year be on show in Berlin.
