About this event

Cultural curator Scentory will present “Dreams, unanswered” that explores the themes dreams, emotions and death through a new series of sculptural work by artist Yu-Ting Cheng (Taiwan) for the first time in Hong Kong. This show is the artist’s tribute to her late brother and a reflection of their intimate conversations and an unrealised future.

In this exhibition, Yu-Ting captures the fragility of life in a series of ceramic sculptures that inject playfulness in an otherwise solemn and dark matter. With her ceramic art book, she not only reinvents the concept of books but revisits little conversations with her brother that brings solace to the chaos in everyday life. A light altar is set up at the centre of the room for the audience to lay down their unspoken burdens and commemorate what has been lost to the world. As the viewer looks up, a felted installation hangs from the ceiling as part of the artist’s cathartic expression by stabbing wool repeated to alleviate our collective ‘growing pain’ through her actions. This piece is a graceful response to the scattered emotions in her dreams, and the balancing of life and pain, which is learnt in the hardest of ways.

As part of the immersive experience, Scentory has created a scent, fusing carrot seed and black pepper oil, in response to Yu-Ting’s artwork. Special merchandise will also be available, including a limited edition candle sculpted by the artist and blended by Scentory, ceramic collectibles of the artist’s work and an exclusive pin.
