Connect to Nature – Art Exhibition at Island HouseThree new artists have joined forces to curate a show that connects human to nature, by enforcing the idea that beauty comes from unexpected sources without damaging the environment.
The artists are:
Kay Wong, otherwise known as The Green Artivist, is on a mission to create zero-waste art and design. Her “Fight or Flight" collection, made from salvaged wood, yarn and feathers, was shown at Jouer in Hong Kong and now features at our Island House Conservation Studies Centre.
Chan Oi Yan’s Werifersteria collection examines the interconnection between humans and floral ecologies, referring to how integrated one feels with other life forms.
Zoe Siu is a Hong Kong-based knot artist and designer, known for her bold, sculptural accessories (lable ZO-EE) and striking ropework installations, such as “Ode to Nature”— a "thank you" to nature through this series of ropework, created in a zero-waste way. The artwork appears as bizarre structures, which symbolize the deformation of nature due to mass textile manufacturing. She hopes to bring the abandoned materials back to life and say no to rapid industrialisation and consumerism.
The show runs from 2 June to 2 September 2018.
The Island House Conservation Studies Centre hosts various activities, events and programmes that highlight the importance of conservation and sustainable living.
Built at the beginning of the 20th century and declared a heritage monument in 1983, Island House is home to 140 plant species, comprising a mixture of local and introduced species ranging from ferns to mature trees. You can also learn how to protect our oceans by reducing the use of plastics.
