《生活里不在意的它》

Things That We Overlook in Everyday Life

Can everyday objects be reinterpreted? Artist Angel Hui and designer Michael Leung are interested in the fabled beasts and imaginary landscapes in the pre-Qin classic text Shan Hai Jing (The Classic of Mountains and Seas). Starting from this transgenerational imagination, they give ordinary objects a second life by making them more intriguing and functional. Their goal is to attract visitors’ attention to the minutiae around them and imbue everyday objects with new meanings by adopting unique concepts, artistic practices and designs.
