• MATTI GAO’S LONG LASTING JOURNEY INTO COLLECTING ART

    I admire artworks that are like a gaze into a different world - a world that I might have deeply desired over the years, but never dared to express in that way

    IN CONVERSATION ABOUT IDENTITY
    Artistellar second pop-up is now on, encompassing a range of spellbinding vibrant artworks. This time, Adele, founder and brilliant creative head of the project, deemed identity as the core topic of the exhibition. Identity, the name of the pop-up too, is a three-person show displaying the works of the Malaysian artist Alya Hatta, Salvadorian artist Jose Campos, aka Studio Lenca, and Chinese artist Tang Shuo. Together by choice and coming from different yet similar backgrounds by chance, the Artistellar interviewed the three artists aiming to see where the silver lining lies amongst them. Presenting artists with the same three questions highlights many differences yet a solid unity in finding consolation and shelter in their artistic practices. Trying to identify what shaped their artistic practice resulted in deep social analysis and reflection, providing the basis for understanding who the people behind the paintings are.
