The “Cloud” exhibition is intended as a retrospective showcase of the various pieces Lung has produced over the years. Now on view at the Tokyo gallery, a total of 40 drawings from 2022 and 2021 are being displayed — the selection comprises recognizable pieces such as PIJL, 3T, CORP, and KOB. In addition, special edition stools featuring Lung’s iconic illustrations, as well as a whole-new acrylic painting serving as a key visual to the show are also being exhibited for the first time.
As the exhibition name suggests, weather is a prominent theme in “Cloud” — according to Lung in a recent Instagram post, the idea stems from weather changes and other elements that revolve around it. Unlike the large-scale artworks that were shown at “+-” in Kaikai Kiki last year, “Cloud” takes on a more intimate approach with significantly smaller marker-on-paper drawings, which are also Lung’s go-to medium.
Kasing Lung’s “Cloud” exhibition is currently on view until April 30 across the second and third floors at Hidari Zingaro Gallery.
