Unpack show 2016 by Hyphen

After the “thank you london” by the Hyphen Project 2016, I am exhibiting another work in Hong Kong. This is the 4th unpack show by The Hyphen, it’s my pleasure to join and getting know to the fresh graduate from London as well.

This year the unpack show exhibiting ten designers and artists, with various professionals like interior design, architecture, fashion, set design…etc…and including my work, which is an installation. I am showing the work “Melt Away” which was came from my lipstick collecting campaign; I collecting wasted lipsticks and spreading the message of palm oil over used, causing the deforestation problem. This is a side project from my graduation project. I am happy to display and showing  my friends, donors the work, at the same time, keep delivering the message in Hong Kong.

As I also wanna see the response from Hong Kong, where the culture and mindset is totally different from Europe. It seems the result is positive and audiences like my concept as well. And I am sure I will continue the similar topic.

Reflective from Final show

Today is the third day showing in Camberwell. I am now in the show place and seems a very good journey and sharing when talki to the audiences. The Lipbalm Tiger “Omar”, although not going as what I expected, people keep doing graffiti on it….but….that’s good! as long as people enjoy the activity and getting to know more about the story.

here’s some opinion, feedback, from my mind or guests.

1) to cast more the same size with different colour, letting audiences to crave it….and therefore, everyday journey is written on the tiger, plus more space provided to audiences

2) my pleasure to invite the sculptor, Raphael, to come and crave the tiger stripes, he suggest me a way for souvenir, using a pot of lipbalm, letting audiences to dip and take away….yea …could develop form for that.

3) so far from my observation, people in this country are really into wildlife conservation…they are interested in and supporting the wildlife.

4) inspired by Yujin’s work…..I think there should be some metal casting lipbalm (with Omar’s head) as souvenir, sell them and making money for donation to the forest conservation.

RA graduation show

Today went to the Royal Academy of Art, graduation show, with some interesting materials art. giving me impact.

P1140327

This artist got several pieces using different materials, mixing them…this one by wax, I think is mainly candles, to create the lighting effect….well I think the yellow ribbon or paper strip not necessary and disturbing the composition…but the candle he/she using is creative and looks great…texture, time, gravity….many things let audiences to feelP1140329 P1140330

the other artist using various materials, PVC, ketchup, sugar, plaster….etc…to create sculpture…more like experimental project…and the show do not have all artists’ concepts and personal statement….which making me confusing.P1140337

showing works just on the floor….is good or bad? I think easy to be broke and yea….better have a plinth for eye level….maybe is his/her idea.

P1140340

This one artist use photo paper exposure under moon light….to see the amount of algae and the colour relationship. there is a water current and algae setup, useful?helpful? hmmmmm…..not really….could improve by demonstrating  a real exposure or tube management

P1140353

yea…here’s the description

P1140349

I like the following the most….artist using glass fabric…acrylic (I think) to cast the metallic tube on ceiling…something really dull and dirty…..after casting by her, Rebecca Ackroyd….it become colourful and attractive

Rough planning for final show

meanwhile, imagining how to show my project well.

– what if the sculpture could be took away, audience got interactive, getting my “palm oil free” lipstick, so that they not only got the knowledge but also the daily habit….really begin to use something without palm oil

– 4 animals sculpture, with 4 color, 1 big lip balm (tiger) colorless, they could use container to get it.

– or? setup secondary boilier to melt in front of them?

– or? putting the amount of lipstick = amount of that animals population!? e.g. sumatran tiger less then 400, I put 399 pieces there.

Inspiration from Paris trip and Centre Pompidou

Was spending a week in Paris during end of December. There are several stuffs inspiring me.

1) “we are going to create something but not executing something” said by a friend studying performing art there. Yea, we should create something out (event, campaign….whatever) instead of following something procedure or routine to execute something.

2) After visiting Italy in April and France in Dec, I think it is necessary to keep exploring Europe for more fine art knowledge or at least go to visit fine artists’ work in person…..Italy and France are full of art works from the Renaissance, which remind me how hard an artist should work out. More to explore in the future……especially my favourite artist….Dali in Spain and Van Gogh in Netherlands.

3) some exhibition and show, for my ref,

P1110589 P1110590 P1110591

the whole exhibition is by different gallery, some gallery even run by the artist him/herself, making me think of……could I do it myself?! promoting myself, selling my art, promoting others making profit….staying alive…….in artist path.
