Michael Lau –- ‘Remember-disc’ * Time-Table (5.15)
Urban vinyl pioneer Michael Lau will present a new body of work for his ‘Remember-disc’ – Time-Table solo during Art Basel HK weekend. Opening with a private reception on May 15th at his pop-up gallery in Causeway Bay, the show is a reflection on the important lessons and qualities of life through visual interpretations of quotes that have impressed, move, and challenged Lau over the years. The new collection will feature 44 circular pieces tying into the ‘Remember-disc (this)’ portion of the title and a subtle recognition of his recent birthday. Known in large part for his 3D work, Lau will also feature sculptural work in the form of ‘table’ –- once again as a way of considering time, in particular the short amount each of us is given to make a difference.
