Artist David Boyce Exhibits in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s Karin Weber Gallery has announced a joint exhibition by New Zealander David Boyce and China’s Hiu Tung Lau, two artists in dialogue who between them cover a multitude of artistic expressions and mediums, yet, at first glance could be considered, like the Chinese proverb, and the show’s name, ‘A Cow’s Head And A Horse’s Jaw’. Ocula magazine online outlines the show.

Both artists come from entirely different backgrounds and career trajectories but share Hong Kong as their chosen place to live and work, a gallery press release reads. All works in the show are recent and were created during the disruptive period of the global Covid-19 pandemic.

Boyce adopts a globally focused, conceptual approach. Perhaps best known for his photography practice, Boyce’s works in this show provide a surprising departure from his preferred medium to explore alternative techniques and materials.

Boyce is originally from Wellington.
