bReAK tHE ruLeS 嬰戲人間

“bReAK tHE ruLeS" is my latest work created for the exhibition “The Past is Continuing" held by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The exhibition invites the museum visitors to embark on a tour of the past re-invented by 18 Hong Kong contemporary artists, providing them with an interesting visiting experience.

When I was invited by the Museum to participate in this exhibition, I kept thinking about how to infuse energy into the gallery of Chinese antiquities. How to attract the visitors, especially the children, to reimagine about the traditional artworks.

The concept of “bReAK tHE ruLeS" is originated from “Bowl Painted with Children Playing in a Garden in Underglaze Blue" created in Jiajing period, Ming dynasty (1522 – 1566). It is a work donated by Dr T. T. Tsui to the Museum. Breaking a piece of exhibit is one of the greatest disasters in any museums. I imagined that one day, this bowl was broken and something amazing happened. All the children playing in the garden from the Ming dynasty wonder around the gallery of the museum and interact with the gallery exhibits happily.

Chinese tradition art have long been the source of inspirations for many contemporary artists. Great piece of art can transcend time. I hope this work “bReAK tHE ruLeS" will encourage the visitors to look at the antiquities with fresh eyes, just like what the children are doing in the gallery.

Some of them do not enjoy staying here. They just go back to where they came from.
