Contamination Photography Exhibition – Antoine D’Agata
29 March @ 1:00 pm - 25 May @ 7:00 pm
Acclaimed French artist Antoine D’Agata will exhibit his photography at CHARBON art space from 29 March until 25 May to coincide with Art Basel in Hong Kong and South Island Art Day. The solo exhibition, Contamination, will showcase 30 colour and black and white photographs and a video installation. Antoine D’Agata will be in Hong Kong for the exhibition opening on 29 and 30 March.
Curated by French gallery owner and art collector Lalie Choffel from CHARBON, Contamination pays tribute to 30 years of unique and radical works by the celebrated D’Agata. From one continent to another, D’Agata has never ceased to pursue his arduous and radical quest: a plunge into prostitution, urban violence and drugs where one is used to see only nothingness, and where he chases the dignity of the losers, life force of the underdogs, beauty of a gesture and human solidarity. The exhibition will be open from 1pm to 7pm from Tuesday to Saturday, excluding public holidays.
