THE SHOPHOUSE Presents ‘Cityscape Resolution’ by YOSHIROTTEN, In Collaboration with Wing Shya

Making its way from Tai Hang to Central, cultural destination THE SHOPHOUSE opens its first-ever pop-up experience at BELOWGROUND, featuring Part 2 of ‘CITYSCAPE RESOLUTION’ by Japanese artist YOSHIROTTEN in collaboration with photographer Wing Shya.

For the second iteration of ‘CITYSCAPE RESOLUTION,’ the artist YOSHIROTTEN expands on the recreation of Wing Shya’s iconic photographs, presenting 10 collaborative prints. Wing Shya’s images are collaged and reconstructed using only the graphic motifs that appear by picking up the resolution, unveiling the primordial fragments of that particular moment in time. According to YOSHIROTTEN, Wing Shya’s photography captures Hong Kong as “a collection of human emotions rather than the actual scenes of the city.”

The exhibition is a sequence of compelling works that showcase a new creative approach while embodying each artist’s distinctive style and expression.

Exclusively available at BELOWGROUND, the pop-up experience by THE SHOPHOUSE also presents ‘otherthings’, which includes 6 limited run photo print t-shirts (made in Japan) and a special issue of the cult magazine WERK No. 29 designed by Creative Director Theseus Chan, who employs his trademark design language of utilizing printed form and elevating it to a highly collectible art object, a craft that is quickly becoming a rarity in the modern age.

THE SHOPHOUSE pop-up experience is open from 3 April to 24 April 2022. Follow the instagram for regular updates and special promotions.
