IMPerfect Creation 丑陋 与完美
Beauty cannot be seen if one cannot see ugliness
From 20 October to 12 November 2016, the award-winning contemporary sculptor Ch'ng Huck Theng is holding his first solo bronze sculpture exhibition: 'IMPerfect Creation' at SpACE@Collins, Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition is presenting 11 timeless bronze works created by Ch'ng, each carrying its own unique story, meaning and philosophy inspired by different people and happenings around the artist.
Through this exhibition, Ch'ng will be introducing a new perspective to the concept of beauty and ugly in which beauty cannot be seen if one cannot see ugliness. The artist's 'Ugly' bronze sculptures depict current society matters that encourage the public to look deeper into their hearts and souls when faced with issues.
Ch'ng is currently one of the leading artists and sculptors in Malaysia as this year marks the artist's 22 years in art. His works are collected not only in Malaysia but around the world by respected institutions that include the National Visual Art Gallery Malaysia, Singapore Art Museum, Hong Kong University Museum & Gallery, Shanghai Art Museum and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris.
Ch'ng's bronze creations have been hammered off in local and international auction houses, setting impressive sales records. The artist's works were also selected to be presented as national gifts by Malaysia’s Prime Minister to China, London and Melbourne. It has remained as Malaysia’s largest sculpture ever presented to the Chinese government.
Rupert Myer AO Guest of Honour and the Chair of the Australia Council for the Arts will be officiating the event. The highly anticipated exhibition is set to be held at SpACE@Collins, Level 1, 278 Collins Street during the exhibition dates on weekday 11am to 5pm and Saturday 11am to 3pm.
