Tens of thousands of trees, including a number of old and valuable trees, were toppled by Typhoon Mangkhut in September last year. To utilise and recycle the huge amount of fallen trees, Art Promotion Office joins hands with Hong Kong Sculpture and One Bite Foundation Association to upcycle these wood waste and create different types of sculptures, furniture and art installations.
The project ‘Junk! Woodworking' is composed of four episodes. The first episode ‘Junk! Woodworking: Exhibition at Hong Kong Flower Show 2019' was completed in March. The second episode ‘Fallen Trees, Rising Hope', is launched in Sha Tin Park from May onwards, displaying ten sets of wooden sculptures by members of the Hong Kong Sculpture. The third episode ‘Adopt a Log Brainstorming Session' will be held during the Muse Fest HK. The final episode ‘Adopt a Log' school project will be launched soon after the Brainstorming Session. Please follow and stay tuned to our Facebook page for details.
Wasted? Not wasted! Useless? Useful! Everything in the world should have its meaning and purpose. Let us explore different ways of reusing the junk wood pieces in the spirit of making use of the useless.
