Michael Lin: Hau Tei Square

Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile – CHAT

17 Mar 201928 Jul 2019

The CHAT Lounge, a contemplative, communal space for visitors to relax, converse and mingle, will be transformed with a site-specific commissioned work by internationally acclaimed Taiwanese artist Michael Lin. Lin’s large-scale interventions reintroduce ornament into architecture through their engagement with locality and tradition. Inspired by various textile patterns found in the hawkers’ market in Tsuen Wan, Lin creates furnishings realised in collaboration with 6 Hong Kong art students and young artists via craftsmanship, advanced textile fabrication and artistic skill. His immersive installation with different floral patterns addresses the disappearing landscape of Hong Kong’s textile market.
