A Preface to Magnificence

14 March - 31 March


There’s a sage old saying which goes, “the whole can be seen from the small, and the end from the beginning.”

Pause to observe and admire each exquisite and radiant piece, like a small calling card which carries the larger reflection of the artist. Truth and sincerity enchants and charms, like an open palm enticing you and me to explore the artist’s inner world together.

Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC) is delighted to join Art Basel Hong Kong as a cultural partner for the first time during this year’s Hong Kong Art Month, to showcase collaborative works by six resident artists at the JCCAC booth. Before that rendezvous, allow your artistic taste buds to be tantalised by a parallel exhibition at JCCAC – A Preface to Magnificence – featuring 12 JCCAC resident artists including Chan Kwan Lok, Halley Cheng, Rachel Cheung, Bouie Choi Yuk Kuen, Kwong Man Chun, Lau Ka Chun, Joey Leung, Giraffe Leung Lok Hei, Man Mei To, Yau Wing Fung, Yung Chung Kong, and Angela Yuen, representing artistic practices as varied as ink painting, woodblock printing, oil painting, mineral pigment painting, ceramics, mixed media painting and installation.

The 12 sets of works featured in A Preface to Magnificence include 24 palm-sized pieces specially commissioned for this parallel exhibition at JCCAC – created as challenges for the artists within the constraints of limited space, materials, and time to accompany 20 pieces of their larger and more iconic works being exhibited side-by-side.

Continuing the theme of JCCAC’s 15th anniversary to explore “self-existence”, the miniature pieces are small but mighty manifestations of the artistic essence of their creators, guiding the audience to read and understand the inner world of the artists.

Art is beauty that is beyond description. This parallel exhibition at JCCAC offers a chance to see through the elusive veil of art as each artist reveals their authenticity and essence through a palm-sized piece to captivate the audience’s heart and imagination.
