About this Event


		Can’t touch this!|鑊鑊新鮮鑊鑊甘 image

Since 2020, we have learnt to be mindful of the things we touch throughout the day… currency notes, our phones, elevator buttons. In July of the same year, Dr. Quentin J. Lee, an Alabama principal, sang a rap song about Covid to MC Hammer's classic hit of U Can't Touch This. The parody went viral overnight.

The upcoming exhibition at WMA, 'Can’t touch this!' is facilitated by visual artist Angela Su. It was conceived as an extension to ‘Faces under Masks’, a book project initiated by journalist-turned urbanist Chloe Lai. The project consists of interviews with 10 Hongkongers that document divergent experiences of the pandemic, with photo documentations by field research photographer Tse Pak Chai. Three visual artists, Siu Wai Hang, Yim Sui Fong and Kenji Wong Wai Kin were invited to create visual responses to the project.

‘Can’t touch this!’ will be held on the occasion of the release of Chloe Lai’s book.

疫情底下無新事?鑊鑊新鮮鑊鑊甘! WMA 最新展覽「鑊鑊新鮮鑊鑊甘」,由視覺藝術家徐世琪發起,旨在延續城市研究者黎穎詩的「 1.5米」訪談計劃。該計劃透過訪問十位香港人在疫情中的經歷,並聯同攝影師謝柏齊的影像紀錄,編輯成書《 1.5 米》。是次展覽邀請了三位視覺藝術家蕭偉恒、嚴瑞芳和王偉健,觀察當下的種種新常態,各自透過不同的視覺語境回應訪談計劃。

展覽「鑊鑊新鮮鑊鑊甘」將會在黎穎詩的新書《 1.5 米》出版時同期舉行。
