1. Flowers Gallery: Self
New York-based Shanghainese artist Shen Wei is known for making intimate portraits of himself. In this solo show, Shen presents video and photography works from 2010 to the present that explore identity, memory and sexuality.
For instance, his nude self-portraits series I Miss You Already, “Self-portrait (Bent)” portrays a stretched body; Broken Sleeve, inspired by an emperor tearing off his sleeve to avoid waking his lover who is sleeping on it, examines the intertwining of power and submission.
From November 28 to February 27, 2021. 49 Tung Street, G/F, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. Find out more at flowersgallery.com
