YeP YeP 1st Issue Exhibition
Dan Tse & Eugene Leung, Ip Wai Lung, Lai Lon Hin, Kenny X. Li, Ko Sin Tung, Luke Casey, Virtue Village
Present Projects presents a group exhibition in collaboration with YeP YeP magazine, featuring Hong Kong’s most exciting faces in art and fashion. YeP YeP, launched in May, is an irreverent, humorous new print publication founded by photographer Kenny X. Li. YeP YeP is envisioned as a new cultural platform for Hong Kong’s emerging creative voices, paying tribute to the city’s vibrant energy, resilience and diversity.
This exhibition brings together a plethora of boundary-breaking artists, namely duo Dan Tse & Eugene Leung, Ip Wai Lung, Lai Lon Hin, Kenny X. Li, Ko Sin Tung, Luke Casey and Virtue Village. Drawing inspiration from Hong Kong’s urban rhythms, each participating artist explores their own relationship with the cultural playground that they also call home. Every work of art is a fascinating portal into the artists’ unique worlds and the many possibilities lurking in between old streets and high-rises. Combining humour, nostalgia and desire, YeP YeP presents visual stories about a city that never stands still.
At its core, YeP YeP is a manifestation of Hong Kong’s innovative essence and fluid vigour. YeP YeP wanders, gazes, and ignites. The magazine will be the first of many issues, published bi-annually, amplifying the voices of local artists who seek to connect, experiment and create.
