Some images from our previous exhibitions
Alexander Dluzak’s 2012 Photographs Of The Punk Scene In Rangoon
Alexander Dluzak, journalist, filmmaker and photographer based in Berlin/Germany tells unconventional and insightful stories in strong images, especially from places where
journalists are not always welcome. In his latest photographic essay he examines the growing underground punk scene in Burma.
The Cambodian Space Project
Only a Phnom Penh bar band 18 months ago the Cambodian Space Project are one of the first independent rock music acts out of SE Asia to make inroads into the international music scene playing to adoring crowds in the UK, US & Australia over the past year.
On reviewing their debut album“Tracks like “Chnam Oun Dop Pram Mouy” are just begging to be used to soundtrack the next Tarntino movie” - Respected UK music magazine Uncut
2011: A Space Odyssey proves that music and art are more powerful than the forces of evil. While the genocidal forces may have flexed their might, like the liner notes say, The Cambodian Space project proves that you can “kill the singer, but you can’t kill the song.” - Music.kbutt .org
The Cambodian Space Project also love the power of the image and are in the process of setting up their own screen printing factory in Phnom Penh. Our exhibition will feature some great prints and photos from the past couple of years.
The Pairs ( Shanghai)
Pairs are the shining lights in Shanghai’s DIY punk music scene and as well as touring the country encouraging other to take up the reins of music they are a dab hand at the art punk event as their photos and images will attest to.
Hong Kong’s independent music scene moves in fits and starts . Via the exhibition we hope to document what’s been happening locally with posters and band images.
We look forward to seeing you during the month of May at Hong Kong’s very first exhibition documenting underground music in Asia.

Leanne Claxton : Flowers May 2011
Leanne Claxton, a graduate from St Martins Art School London presents her collection of canvases “Flowers” alongside the latest collection of HK based fashion designer Joanna Ho.
Their joint collection HO:CLAXTON also featuring a short film directed by Nick D.
The exhibition unites art and fashion as one entity.
Originally trained as a painter Leanne developed a passion for textiles design. Her organic prints and kaleidoscopic colour palette translates perfectly into digitally printed fabric, resulting in exquisite wearable art.
Johanna first approached Leanne in early 2010 when they worked together on a printed suit for Cantopop star Eason Chan. Johanna’s design and stylistic essence – a fusion of opposing elements – rock n’roll but sweet, sculptural yet romantic, fits perfectly with Leanne’s organic, almost fantasy flower paintings and prints. Johanna’s design concept for this line also focuses on eco-friendly, by using zero wastage pattern cutting techniques for each design, in which each garment has no leftover fabric wastage.
Joint Exhibition with Oceanic Art Gallery (Port Douglas) Australia. Contemporary Indigenous Australian Art
