INTRODUCING CHINA PERSPECTIVES & ARTIST PROJECTS
The 10th edition will unveil several new features including China Perspectives, a collection of works by selected galleries, artists and artist collectives themed around the contemporary Chinese art narrative, and Artist Projects, an entire floor dedicated to painters, sculptors and photographers exhibiting in a solo or joint presentation. The aim of both projects is to bring art and artists together with new and seasoned collectors from across Asia and the world.
FEATURED ARTIST: MOON JOO HO - KOREA
Moon Joo Ho places his critique of disposable consumption and waste culture on display. With his "Showcases" series, Joo Ho articulates through fragments of plaster cups the remnants of wealth and waste, of debris emptied of its value. He arranges the fragments as if they were centuries-old artefacts, superimposing them upon comics representative of the "kitschiness" of popular culture. The cup, empty and broken, is a symbol for the internal void that cannot be filled with material wealth.
Moon Joo Ho received both his BFA and MFA in Fine Art from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, and he is currently a PhD candidate in Fine Art at Hongik University. He has taken part in several international art fairs.

FEATURED ARTIST: XIE KE - HONG KONG
Xie Ke (b. 1955) creates sculptural work that combines images from the past with those in a modern context. He portrays fragments of history in a humorous yet thought-provoking way, combining them with his own critique of today's world. Heroes from Chinese martial arts stories and the golden age of kung fu films defend those in need, returning balance and order to society. In combining Western innovativeness and traditional Chinese design, the artist aims to raise a culturally reflective awareness in the viewer.
Xie studied at the First Institute of Art and Design in Hong Kong and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Xie has exhibited his work in many solo and group shows across Asia.
Represented by Beijing Central Art Gallery.
FEATURED ARTIST: JANG SEUNGHYO - SOUTH KOREA
Jang Seunghyo's (b.1971) photo-collage sculptures transform two-dimensionality into three-dimensionality via a calculated use of photographs associated with his everyday experiences. The quotidian images - logos, advertisements, Internet images - reflect the artist's individual memories as well as the shared reality of collective associations. Fragments of plastic and photographs are transformed into a hybrid configuration that challenges pictorial convention but unites the collective-memory imagery into a single expression.
Jang received his BFA in Sculpture from Hongik University, Seoul and MFA in Sculpture from New York University. He has exhibited his work in solo and group shows across South Korea and in New York, Paris and Hong Kong.

NOW AT FABRIK GALLERY
CURRENT EXHIBITION: “limited edition | édition limitée”6 October - 31 November, 2016Prints by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Marc Quinn
Distinct in character, style and artistic medium, presented in this exhibition are individuals whose evolution from humble artist to internationally recognised figure in the art world recounts a larger story of art as an identifiable and accessible brand. Having built their brand persona through a series of thematically unique and distinctive works that have withstood the test of time, these artists have managed to blur the line between art obtainable by the elite and art available to all.
