Summarization of Content

Catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition Poetics of Materiality at the Osage, Hong Kong, 2014 Jan 4 - Feb 16, curated by Charles Merewether. 

The exhibition is composed of artworks by 4 artists, coming from 4 different countries that together span East and Southeast Asia. Placed beside one another, the artworks of these four artists show a certain unity as much as a distinction. This unity is, in essence, a commitment to the materality of artistic practice not simply the basis of much of artistic practice but, as its subject.
