The Hong Kong House will reopen on 10 August this year, showcasing Annie Wan's new works and organising cyanotype workshops by the Hong Kong Open Printshop during the summer festival.
Annie Wan has stayed at the Hong Kong House during March to April. While interviewing local people about eating culture, she has experienced bountiful products from the land of Niigata. Food making and ceramics making are the same process of transformation for Annie. Her works reflect her exploration of the relationship between cooking and ceramics making, also her humble attitude towards basics in daily life.
Sound artists Mark Chung and Jacklam Ho from soundpocket, Fleur des Lettres's editor Lee Yat-hong and writer Lui Siu-lung, art critic Vivian Ting and Chan Sai-lok from Art Appraisal Club will visit the Hong Kong House and create works in response to their exotic experiences. Hong Kong Open Printshop will organise cyanotype workshops in the local community with the aid of the sun and water from the nature, participants will experience the inter-relationship between people, nature and art.
