Yue Min Jun “The Tao of Laughter” @ Ocean Terminal, Harbour City Recap Pt. 2

Chinese contemporary artist Yue Min Jun returns to Hong Kong’s Harbour City to showcase his

Chinese contemporary artist Yue Min Jun returns to Hong Kong’s Harbour City to showcase his third-ever exhibition containing five brand new sculptures as well as 12 new silk-screened artworks. Yue’s iconic “Laughing Man” has become almost ubiquitous around Hong Kong and has become widely recognizable throughout the world. This recent acquisition continues the recent trend in Hong Kong of being a center for Chinese artwork both classic and contemporary – most notably Uli Sigg’s $163 million donation to M+ museum. Leading China’s “cynical realist” movement, Yue’s new exhibition continues the trend – most blatantly in a sculpture depicting a man laughing whilst covering his eyes. Its location in Harbour City – even more forthright – is painfully ironic and, thus, further strengthens Yue’s artwork. The silkscreen exhibition will remain open until October 14, 2012, while the sculptures – “The Tao of Laughter” – can be seen until October 23, 2012.
