About the exhibition |

Slasher is an emerging term coined for those with multiple careers, referring to the numerous ‘slashes’ in their work title enumerating their different job abilities. The idea of slashing suggests that young people no longer confine themselves to a single position. Multiple careers allow them to pursue various interests and a more satisfactory work-life balance.

“Materials / Designers” reflects the idea of slashing by displaying designers’ liberating relationships with different materials. The Material Resource Centre of PolyU Design invited seven young designers, the alumni of PolyU Design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, to create artwork for the exhibition. These young designers achieved outstanding accomplishments and received numerous awards during their studies, and now, they have unleashed their potential in various fields of design. For this material-themed exhibition, each designer has produced artwork using a single material, from the traditional, including paper, Hong Kong reclaimed wood and acrylic, to new intelligent panels such as OLED and a biological agent, yeast. Each material has unique characteristics. With this exhibition, the Material Resource Centre of PolyU Design hopes to show the designers’ insights into these materials, allowing visitors to understand their relationships and explore the materials’ possibilities.
