HEARTS & HANDS : CRAFTS OF HONG KONG
This exhibition is a celebration of the skills and creativity of Hong Kong’s artisans and a reminder of the importance of craftsmanship in preserving our city’s culture and heritage. We hope that it will inspire visitors to revive, reinterpret and perpetuate traditional crafts in their own lives, and to play a part in keeping alive Hong Kong’s rich culture of craftsmanship.
Master Liu Wing Sheung, Fanson Lam, Jacky Lam
The creation of “Bon Voyage” is derived from the Chinese wooden sailing boat, commonly known as the junk boat. The sails in the form of fallen leaves were crafted by Master Liu Wing Sheung, using glass and brass to create a lustrous effect. Contemporary artisan Fanson Lam and Jacky Lam used wood from the Acacia tree to shape the wax mold of the hull, responding to Master Liu’s sails through their woodworking and sculptural techniques in the hope of capturing the present moment in Hong Kong.
