Yuanyang – Stainless Steel & Ceramic Sculptures by Johnson TSANG Chueng Shing

My first Yuanyang ceramic sculpture was created in 2002.

In 2012, I try to reinvent the original idea with stainless steel, a more durable and shiny material.

The model is a public artwork proposal for the West Kowloon Cultural District. Expected dimension on site: 400cm H x 155cmW x 280cmD

Yuanyang is a local drink which mixes milk tea and coffee, reflects Hong Kong’s unique fusion of Eastern and Western cultures.

The original Yuanyang II ceramic sculpture created in 2002.

Some people called this work Coffee Kiss (咖啡之吻). I do think it is a great suggestion!

“Yuanyang" is a species of water birds literally known as mandarin duck. Since “Yuanyang" always appear in pairs, it is adopted as a symbol of conjugal love in Chinese.

Yuanyang II exhibited at the Hong Kong International Airport

Yuanyang II was exhibited with another work of mine, “In and Out (Face-giving Party)"

Artist Statement:

With Hong Kong’s historical background, local culture embraces Chinese traditions as well as impacts from the West. In fact, inclusion has long been the major characteristic of local culture. Yet, Hong Kong people are no copycats. We infuse the external impacts with our own creativities. Yuanyang, a local drink which mixes milk tea and coffee, reflects Hong Kong’s unique fusion of Eastern and Western cultures. I hope to represent Hong Kong culture’s organic vitality in the West Kowloon Cultural District with this sculpture.

– Johnson TSANG Cheung Shing 2012

在獨特的歷史背景影響下,香港文化中既包含中國傳統文化因子,亦有西方外來的衝擊和養分,因此本地文化的一大特點正是其兼收並蓄的包容性。然而香港人並非只是一味的模仿,而是會把外來的影響內化成為自己的特點,並加以創作,拼發出香港獨有的、唯一的城市及文化生態。「鴛鴦」這種地道茶餐廳飲品最能表現。 – 曾章成 2012
