Nosy – A Solo Exhibition by Valentina Loffredo
7 November - 30 November
Novalis Contemporary Art Design Gallery presents Nosy, a solo exhibition by Italian Hong Kong-based artist Valentina Loffredo, co-presented in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institute in Hong Kong.
The global issue of privacy in the digital age is the central theme of Nosy, a multi-media project that includes photographs, sculptural objects, installations and a limited edition of unique artist books. Not confined to the space within the gallery walls, the exhibition also extends to other parts of town with the artist’s ad hoc placements of sculptural noses.
The project mimics the conflict between the seductive power of technology, expressed through the playful and attractive appearance of the artworks, and its dark “nosy” side, revealed by the repetitive and uncanny presence of human noses.
