A joint exhibition by Arthur Chan (陳軒明) and Sim Chan (陳閃), the two local artists present their latest series of artworks which provide a brand-new perception of poetic space via the transformation and deconstruction of architecture in the cityscape into creative works of interactive installation. Through the process of art creation, both manage to create a metaphorical narrative that depicts the hidden memory and hence defines the soul of the city.
Arthur’s latest sculpture series, “traces of the city”, transforms some peculiar silhouettes of the city into various forms of pictorial representation, which capture unique shapes and scenes we see every day. Sim’s sculpture series, “CityKite”, aims to reflect the impact of urbanisation by means of traditional craftsmanship –kite making.
