Architectures of the body and the built environment: impressions, sensations and expressions

Duo exhibition of Marie-Do Hyman-Boneu and W.W Hung

Opening reception: Wednesday, January 11th, 2017 at 6:30pm

Galerie Pierre Léon

Marie-Do Hyman-Boneu is a French artist specializing in vegetal lacquer. She has been living in Vientiane, Laos since 2010. She graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 1995 and has since lived in Hanoi, Toronto and Vientiane, continually working on her art. East met West in Hanoi at the beginning of the 20th  century to forge a new art form. This is where she discovered the technique of vegetal lacquer and decided to dedicate her expression to this medium. W.W. Hung, who was born in Hong Kong, is a Canadian sculptor and installation artist based in Toronto. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo.

This exhibition will present a reflection on the body and space through the impressive sculptures of WW Hung. Exploring the human condition through contemporary figurative sculpture, W.W. Hung uses the human body, placed in abstract spatial contexts, to suggest different narratives and psychological states. Many of his sculptural works explore the themes of the cycle of life, determinism vs. free will, and the tenacity of the human spirit.  They possess a powerful presence, where forms are always in dynamic engagement with the viewer, and with the space they inhabit. 
They will be put into perspective with the works of Marie-Do Hyman-Boneu, who developed a work of art on urban development in Toronto through the creation of lacquer paintings, using a very original and distinctive technique.
