Tim Franco Exhibit – July 1st – August 15th

Coming up in July we have Tim Franco exhibiting his unique style of pinhole photography. “Light doesn't flood into a pinhole camera, it seeps in slowly, drawn as strands to be manipulated and woven into a spider's web or spun into cotton candy. The images in this collection do not only represent a fleeting moment but an entire experience, be it a journey, a song, a thought. Watching the pictures closely over a period of time hypnotically draws one into the scene until we can almost perceive the movement it has captured.”


Virginie Lerouge Knight - May 1st – June 15th

We are pleased to present Virginie's contemporary installations at Origin during May/June. The exhibit will include several pictures of her public installations from France, Hong Kong and Shanghai as well as a custom installation right here at Origin.

Virginie Lerouge Knight is a French artist who has been living in China for the last 16 years, initially in Hong Kong, where she studied Fine Art with R.M.I.T. (Melbourne University), and for the last five years, in Shanghai. She specializes in conceptual installations and most of her projects are exhibited in public spaces.

Virginie has presented several works in Shanghai, such as a major public art project in 2007: Connect@ Xintiandi and then, last year, an interactive public art project: Evolution in Datong Lu, commissioned by the Shanghai Zendai Museum of Modern Art.

In 2004, she was invited to exhibit a series of public sculptures in Lisieux, Normandy as part of the celebration of the 50 th anniversary of the D-Day Landing in France. Most recently, in March this year, Virginie was invited to take part in the Feminarte Festival in South of France, in Antibes, where she presented a large installation called: Identity.

In 2003 and 2005, her work was also exhibited twice at the French Art Festival ( the French May) in Hong Kong and she is currently working on large public art projects in both China and France.
