Description

The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong presents Metamorphosis or Confrontation by German artist and CityU professor Tobias Klein.

This is Klein’s most extensive solo exhibition to date on the theme of Digital Craftsmanship. By exploring applications of 3D printing in architecture, art, design and interactive media installations, Klein has created a fusion of contemporary computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies built from natural materials, found objects and cultural historical references.

The exhibition traces Klein’s work over the past decade and consists of four distinct themes: Bones, Masks, Mutations and Forces, each unraveling the relationships and evolution of the artist’s body of work.
