Hanmi Gallery London is pleased to present the duo exhibition Talk Together at the Dialogues section of Art Projects in London Art Fair 2018, featuring two international artists: Yingmei Duan and Aisha Abid Hussain. The annually curated Dialogues section introduces a unique display of collaborations between international galleries. This year’s Dialogues’ main concept is ‘Future is Female’ in which Hanmi Gallery participates with the theme, ‘As an ontological reality: Image is Female’, dedicated to the female psyche and its complex forms of ontologies and perspectives of epistemologies.
Narrowing the gap between life and art, Duan’s work is subliminal: it encounters inter-human tensions, intangible ramifications and bonding body in time. A somnambulating state is the dream frame within which her performance is enclosed and develops. She underlines the subconscious as an invisible but dominant aspect of the human experience. On the other hand, Hussain’s personal beliefs become political. Her central focus is challenging the traditional gender stereotypes through the use of her body as an expressive medium. She subverts the traditional clichés related to body/gender and self/ gender dichotomies with a force to explode, a desire to break free from something tightly knotted.
