     An exhibition entitled "Sparkle! Zoo as Metaphor" will be held at Oi! from tomorrow (July 26) to October 5. The exhibition will combine visual arts with theatrical elements to offer a unique experience to visitors.

     The exhibition is curated by Orlean Lai, who has extensive experience in stage production and planning cross-media projects. Working in partnership with visual artist Au Wah-yan, composer Steve Hui, theatre director and writer Vee Leong, media artist Kingsley Ng and photographer Wong Hung-fei, Lai has created a multi-dimensional space that brings together the real and the imaginary.

     Featuring scattered objects including ancient texts, redeemed toys, newspaper clippings on animals and fallen teeth, the exhibition will tell the story of an unusual collector. Through their personal experiences and participation, and drawing on their curiosity and artistic instinct, visitors will experience the collector's view of the city's different cultures, features, social values and faded memories through exploring the collection.

     "Sparkle! Zoo as Metaphor" is the second exhibition of the "Sparkle!" exhibition series, which is organised by Oi! of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. The series comprises seven exhibitions, all conceived by young and outstanding local curators. Collaborating with design partner Karr Yip, the guest curators have been drawing up plans for exhibitions that will look into and promote a possible merger of art into daily lives. The exhibitions will encourage creativity while making available an open and experimental art creation platform at Oi! for local art professionals.

     For details of the exhibition, please visit the Oi! website at www.lcsd.gov.hk/CE/Museum/APO/en_US/web/apo/oyip_sparkle_zoo_as_metaphor.html , or contact the Community Art Team of the Art Promotion Office at 2512 3008 or 2512 3009.
