Art @ Kowloon City District: Craft-ist

8 September @ 11:00 am - 28 September @ 7:00 pm

Craftmanship once flourished in the Kowloon City district. As time goes by, one can still find traces of craftsmanship in the district regardless of the rapid urban development. The purpose of local craftsmanship was to “earn a living”; however, it is already history. What does craftsmanship mean to us now?

Art@ Kowloon City District: Craft-ist, a group exhibition curated by Hong Kong artist Chan Po Fung, showcases artworks of five groups of artists including Cissy Chan, Coutou Woodworking studio (Yung Wing Yan), Lai Chan Kee, Victor Wong and Chan Po Fung at Cattle Depot Artist Village in Kowloon City District.

Positioning at Kowloon City District, five groups of artists who focus on the crafts of metal, ceramics and woodwork, takes Craft as a media for connections and communications. Artists aim to explore the values of craftsmanship in the Kowloon City District, and even the entire Hong Kong society today by different means including community participations, artist-in-residence, reuse of natural resources, the collection of stories and the experience of space.

This exhibition aims to project and record these five groups of artists on how they use craftsmanship to connect “people”, “happenings”, “places” and “objects” – as a way to think about who we are and how we should live, presenting the unique features of craftsmanship in Hong Kong and discovering the different aspects and values in between.

An opening seminar will be held on 7 September from 6pm–7pm, followed by an opening reception. There will also be a variety of workshops. Apply here.
