Gallery EXIT is pleased to present Scalable Strategies, a group exhibition with works by Homan HO, LAU Hok Shing, LO Chi Kit, Christine NG Mien Yin, NG Ka Chun, Roy NG and Trevor YEUNG.


Four assumptions for scalable art making strategies:

1)    An art practice should be capable of handling a fluctuating, irregular amount of constraints and workload;

2)    It will reconfigure and maximize its resources when the demand exceeds the daily routine;

3)    A practice is said to be scalable, if it is suitably efficient and practical when having to create work for both small and large situations;

4)    If the strategy fails when a quantitative factor increases, it does not scale.

Seven propositions using scalable strategies (that might not work):

*          Projected rendering of a sculpture

*          Plywood mountain growing upon itself

*          5-point star made from long wooden planks the shape of toothpick 

*          A free-standing moon gate

*          IKEA do-it-yourself furniture kits assembled at will

*          Blades of grass moving in wave-like motion

*          A functional fish pump pushing air through a maze of tubing
