> DESCRIPTION

In "Self", Li Hongbo’s first solo show in Hong Kong, the artist explores the concept of human identity through the prism of nations or races and cultural expressions with or without borders, such as violence, religion or philosophy. The artist has transformed the material of paper into artworks, playing with its appearance and cultural connotations, making it his artistic language. 

Li Hongbo uses a variety of artistic expressions in Self: either reinterpreting a masterpiece, reinventing his own sculptures of a girl or creating new works that resemble the actual model or not. Three of the works are made from international newspapers collected worldwide in different countries and cities from all continents.
