Art can be a lot of things – indulgence, sustenance, a basis of pleasure or disappointment, and a trigger that affects our minds and ultimately how we communicate with people around us. The power of art transcribes founding ideas and expands the originals to launch a creatively neutral sphere for admiration whether it is of beauty or aberration.
‘IMPerfect Creation’ is award-winning Asian contemporary sculptor Ch’ng Huck Theng’s first solo bronze sculpture exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition presents 11 timeless bronze works created by Ch’ng, each carrying its own unique story, meaning and philosophy inspired by different people and events surrounding the artist.
Through this exhibition, Ch’ng introduces a new perspective to the concept of beauty and the grotesque; in which beauty cannot be seen if one cannot identify ugliness. The artist’s ‘Ugly’ bronze sculptures depict current events that encourage the public to look deeper into their hearts and souls when faced with issues.
Ch’ng is currently one of the leading artists and sculptors in Malaysia. Year 2016 marks his 22-year career as a successful artist – setting an artistic precedent on the international platform and to those who recognise his progressive work. His works are not only collected in Malaysia but around the world by respected institutions, which include the National Visual Art Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum, Hong Kong University Museum & Gallery, Shanghai Art Museum and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris.
Ch’ng’s bronze creations have been hammered off in local and international auction houses, attracting high-end buyers and setting impressive sales records. The artist’s works were also selected to be presented as national gifts to countries including China, London and Melbourne.
Rupert Myer AO, the Chair of the Australia Council for the Arts has been invited to be Guest of Honour to officially inaugurate the exhibition. The highly anticipated exhibition is set to be held at SpACE@Collins, Level 1, 278 Collins Street from 20 October to 12 November 2016, weekday 11am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 3pm.
