Event Details

Art Porters Gallery is delighted to present Yanyun Chen’s solo exhibition, titled Flower Flights. The exhibition is a continuation and development of the flower series, Chasing Flowers, first exhibited in 2016, and includes 12 new charcoal works. As a collection of material experiments, the floral motifs remain, while its surfaces and mediums vary. The question persists for Chen —“how far can I go with this?”

“To chase flowers and witness their withering is to practice being present to a gentle exit: a blossom, flurry of colour, then a tender fade without a sound. A clean white slate. In the master-epic Dream of the Red Chamber, the protagonist dreams of reading a book of destiny that foretells the slow and eventual devastation and obliteration of his entire family. It will end. It does end. Perhaps, all one has, all one is left with—all one is left wanting—is to experience the joy of life’s flourish in full bloom; to watch the flowers take flight; and to embrace their soft cascade as their petals fall back to the earth.” – Yanyun Chen
