Metamorphosis: Transformation of Asian Lacquer


In collaboration with Taiwan Sunrise Lacquer 日初漆藝

Through collaboration and exchange between Taiwan, Hong Kong and Myanmar, we leverage the strength of the materials available, craftsmanship and creative minds. Together we explore Asian lacquer art in a new perspective and embrace the diverse culture of these different places in Asia. In this learning process we grow, transform and innovate...a true metamorphosis.

透過台灣、香港、緬甸的漆藝交流合作, 善用三地不同的媒材、思維、創造, 融合多元的藝術文化,就如同蝴蝶在羽化過程中,蛻變求新。

Sunrise Lacquer Art in Taiwan and SOIL in Hong Kong engaged in a study trip to Myanmar in June 2017. We studied the process of local lacquerware making and techniques. The fruitful trip led to several design experiments which are to be shown at the exhibition.
