Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to present Floating World a group exhibition featuring the works of 12 artists. The exhibition seeks to capture the sensations of gliding on time through our world of fleeting impressions in which nothing is fixed. Floating through the days as one passes into the next, losing definition in memory, we teeter between enchantment and detachment as we take on the fickle temperaments of perception and remembrance through individual consciousness.

The selection of artworks presented — paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints — variously depict the personal reality of the individual artist as he or she oscillates between deliberation and spontaneity. They portray the search for a nebulous intermediary place between the melancholy, transitory nature of existence, and the headiness of living for the moment.


Through enigmatic, minimalist forms, and impassioned, sometimes playful, bursts of sensuousness, the artists express distinctly individual views on the ephemeral, subjective nature of reality, and the impermanence of things.
