Opened in November 2011 by critic and curator Robin Peckham, Saamlung has caused one stir after another within the arts community. The gallery sets out to fill the gap between the Gagosians and the White Cubes of the city (big, international names), and the Osages and Para/sites (local galleries content to remain local). With a decided slant towards the conceptual, their shows have featured artists from both home and abroad like Charles LaBelle, Joao Vasco Paiva, Naddim Abbas and the “King of Kowloon” Tsang Tsou-choi. Perched on the 26th floor, it’s a cultural oasis and an unexpected find in an otherwise boring and generic Central mall-slash-office-complex. The sleek white space is so high up that it’s easy to catch a glimpse of Sheung Wan and the roofs of the surrounding buildings from its windows.
