Blindspot Gallery, 23rd January 2024 – 9th March 2024
Comfort Zone is Pixy Liao’s first solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery, marking her debut solo exhibition in Hong Kong. The exhibition features selected works recently created by Pixy, encompassing photography, video, and ready-made sculpture. Liao is known for her staged photographs of her and partner Moro, who is Japanese and five years her junior. Tongue-in-cheek and imbued with a sense of humour, Pixy’s work straddles between the performative and the autobiographical, unveiling her and Moro’s growing relationship.
Zineb Sedira’s work has enriched the debate around the concepts of modernism, modernity and its manifestations in an inclusive way for over the fifteen years of her practice. She has also raised awareness of artistic expression and the contemporary experience in North Africa. She found inspiration initially in researching her identity as a woman with a singular personal geography. From these autobiographical concerns she gradually shifted her interest to more universal ideas of mobility, memory and transmission.

Last year, geophysicists published a study reporting a change in our planet’s rotational axis caused by our excessive use of water, shifting how the earth’s mass is distributed. The artists in The Earth has Shifted have been invited to think about an Earth off-kilter, off-axis, where experiences or ruptures have left a trace or shift in our environment – difficult to convey or describe, yet present in our psyches.
The Earth has Shifted gathers nine artists under the curation of Sarina Basta, from the cooperative Radicants: Marlon de Azambuja, Fadia Haddad, Mohammad Ghazali,Hussein Nassereddine, Neda Razavipour, Hessam Samavatian, Azzedine Saleck, Baktash Sarang and Nil Yalter.
