Newly opened Galerie NeC on Hollywood Road is presenting sculptures by Dutch artist Wouter Dam this month.

Dam's ceramic creations come in thin circular forms in pastel shades. Although based in Amsterdam, his work has been shown in galleries and museums around the world.

The pieces were a hit when the exhibition opened at the French-owned gallery on Saturday. Guests from the worlds of fine food and art included Tasha Lalvani, Nick Pauli, Sally Lee and Vincent Wong.

The Hong Kong gallery is the third art space for Roger Nilsson and Alain Chiglien, who opened their first gallery in Paris in 2001.

In Hong Kong, the duo hope to 'unite these two cities' mutual fascination with the contemporary art scene'.

The exhibition runs until August 18. The gallery is at 208-218 Hollywood Road.
