New York-based artist Dominique Fung (previously featured here) embarks on her first solo exhibition in Europe with “(Up)Rooted,” an allegorical journey featuring a mixture of paintings and sculpture. Building upon themes and concepts explored in her installation works at Rockefeller Center earlier this year, the show plays with both the familiar and the surreal, while encouraging viewers to imagine a new visual narrative encompassing elements of Western art as well as historical East Asian cultural and art references.
A meditation on ancient memories and histories, the series reflects Fung’s own family lineage — the layers of disconnection due to language and location — and yearning for the ability to put those missing pieces back together.
