View "Fashion + Paper, Scissors, and Rock" at Hong Kong Heritage Museum


It might seems strange for a group titled Hong Kong Sacred Spaces to visit an exhibit with the word "Fashion" in it.  The idea of fashion in Hong Kong is often associated with European companies exporting their merchandize into the territory  with on a superficial understanding of local aesthetics and sensibilities.  "Fashion + Paper, Scissor, and Rock" aims to incorporate traditional Hong Kong crafts with a modern design sensibility.  According to the organizers…


"Traditions and innovation are seemingly contradictory, however, design is impossible without those traditions and space for creativity. The “Fashion + Paper, Scissors and Rock” exhibition sets out to combine fashion design with traditional craftsmanship from the perspective of “paper, scissors and rock".  The conceptual stage of the project involved five young fashion designers and artists each selecting a suitable craft through which they could respond to the theme. They then teamed up with six units of local traditional craftsmen, learning from and creating with them. The results are presented in this exhibition, which thus displays for visitors not only five sets of works of creative fashion, but also six iconic crafts."


In fact these designers have incorporated many of the traditional principles that we experience many of our journeys: yin and yang, Feng Shui, and even impressions from the Dongguan Caves with a piece titled "The Six Hues of Guanyin". 

Why not come along and spend a few hours taking in this provocative exhibition.

Without special dispensation an adult ticket is $20.00 for a special exhibition, $14 if we bring 20 people or more so bring a friend!

    Really special exhibit although I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to think about it. I'll work it and try to relate it to the rest of the group. If you didn't go, you should. It's FREE and it will really make you think about design and traditional culture. Best, Justin

    Justin ---- don't wait for me. // Just got off a conference call. No way I can make it, not even to the museum directly. True shame. Sounds like a real cool exhibition. / Another time again. J

    Hello Everyone,
    Glad to see that a few more people have signed up for this event. Once again, we'll have to be prompt if we're going catch the public tour, which I think we'll be essential for understanding these pieces. I'll be trying to leave as soon as possible so if you're running late you can proceed directly to the museum. I'm sure you'll catch up with the group then. Looking forward to seeing you all.
    Best,
    Justin
