French artist and photographer JR has built an incredible reputation through art and philanthropy. Spanning the world over in his exploits, JR’s latest stop takes him to Hong Kong with a recent exhibition opening at Galerie Perrotin. Much of JR’s work centers around bringing to light the marginalized. The city of Hong Kong has long had major socioeconomic issues with a strong disparity between the extremely rich and the poor. Titled “PATTERN,” the exhibition combined aspects of JR’s well-documented INSIDE OUT series on select installations involving metal and woodwork to further accentuate and reappropriate his cause. The exhibition will run until November 10, 2012.
