Crafts Interwoven: New Gallery Explores Local Traditional Crafts
Why We Recommend it
Crafts on Peel, a not-for-profit creative venue located in a historic walk-up, presents traditional craft techniques and stories to be preserved in the modern world.
For their inaugural exhibition Crafts Interwoven: Past and Present, Crafts on Peel has invited six contemporary artisans to collaborate with local traditional craftsmen to explore how traditional crafts and techniques can be reinterpreted and perpetuated in a contemporary artistic context.
Over the past year, artists Jinno Neko, Dylan Kwok, Lawrence Ting, Anthony So, Singchin Lo and Joey Leung have worked with a variety of traditional craftsmen. Cheung Foon focuses on bamboo framework crafting and papier-marché; Chan Lok Choi on birdcage crafting; Luk Shu-choi and Luk Keung-choi on copperware crafting; and Joseph Tso on Canton porcelain painting. Together, they present a collaborative series of unique handmade artefacts.
In conjunction with the collaborations, the exhibition features works by Canton porcelain painter Lam Duen Shan Ming and fashion designer Polly Ho.
