The HKU Museum Society is pleased to visit the showcase Space Shuffler – Imagining Creative Communities with Dorcas Leung, Assistant Manager of HART. This tour will mainly be moderated in Cantonese with some English translations.
About Space Shuffler – Imagining Creative Communities
This presentation reflects upon the question around the nature of art spaces and their functions: how does each of us regard art spaces and cultural groups to play a role (or not) as a part of our lives?
Space Shuffler combines an audience-led reflective journey on art spaces and their inextricable relationship with the creative communities they house, as well as a showcase of latest works created and presented by Hausians (artists) of HART Social Studio. The latest commissioned work of our Open Call winner will also be shown for the first time in this presentation, enriching the narrative via creativity itself.

Doris Ng is an artist residing in Hong Kong. Her artwork is coded with rich color, symbols and texts. She relates the surrounding contexts with her life episodes. Through collaging, she attempts to story tell the overwhelming information. She works in an intense manner- with constant motions to assemble, layer, erase and overlap. This is how her hands weave and unfold the tangled comprehension of unique interrelationships. Her recently exhibited works are 999000110112 and The ubiquitous gates.
