Emmanuel Monzon: Enter The Void
February 25 @ 1:00 pm - March 25 @ 7:00 pm
CHARBON will present the first solo photography exhibition in Hong Kong of multi award-winning visual artist Emmanuel Monzon. Graduated from the prestigious Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris with honours, Monzon is an emerging photographer whose photography work has been gaining attention throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Monzon’s work is influenced by his background as a plastic art artist, and he focuses primarily on the idea of urban sprawling and urban expansion of its periphery. He photographs urban banality as if it was a romantic painting, with emphasis on framing the subject. The expressive artworks depict a balance of photography composition paired with muted tones as the artist explores and questions the signs of urban sprawl in the visual field behind his camera lens. The exhibition’s grand opening is at 6pm on 25 February. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Sunday.
