Something Old, Something New

新舊不分

In collaboration with Mountain Folkcraft 高山民藝

Guest Curator: Furze Chan

 

 
Everything has its own beauty, If, we are willing to discover.

 

 

Sometimes, an old object values beyond the others,

That its presence indicates how people lived and created in the past.

 

As the past passed, it is nice to know that, handcraft remains.


Handmakers of nowadays create with contemporary aesthetics,
In a blend of old and new manners.

 

While we are looking closely at the handmade things,
We may sense something – the makers’ attitudes.

Their products are an extension of their minds,
And they are most alive. 

 

物件的美在乎,它的故事和人物。

 

舊的物件,它的過去正是它的靈魂。

 

手作的物件,總有一份常恆的美。

 

工匠的生活方式,造就了他們手藝,

手藝成全了他們的生活。

 

上一代至下一代,

手作品可以歷久而常新。

 

新設計賦予舊手作新的價值,

現代人的美學帶來新的角度。

 

無所謂舊作物,還是新作物,

反正它們都已不可分割,

只有融和,

才可延續彼此的生命。

About SOIL

Founded in 2012,  SOIL aims to promote crafts through the inspiring history, culture and humanity behind them.

 

We offer a new perspective and experience to traditional crafts. 

In collaborations with designers and craftsmen across different 

disciplines and cultures, we hope to create better craft designs exposed to alternative methods and materials. Collaboration spreads our design sphere of influence and breaks down walls with new approaches.

SOIL 土壤文創於2012年成立,與不同地域的創作人合作,

嘗試從歷史、人文和文化的角度,研究及推廣傳統手作設計,讓手工藝重回現代人的生活中。

我們連結不同領域、喜愛及深懂工藝的創作人和傳統匠人,

一同發想、一同設計,讓傳統工藝與現代設計互相對話和影響。
