Through Mist at Lehmann Maupin is Shirazeh Houshiary’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong and her seventh show with the gallery. Through painting, sculpture, and animation, Houshiary plays with opposing ideas and states of being, including transparency and opacity, presence and absence, materiality and intangibility, and light and darkness, exploring the very nature of existence and metaphysical thought. The artist’s exhibition at the Hong Kong gallery debuts new works that address cross-sensory perception.
