Angela Yuen: The Lost Time Travel Machine

The solo exhibition of Hong Kong artist Angela Yuen celebrates Hong Kong history at Contemporary by Angela Li

Contemporary by Angela Li, G/F, 248 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

This is the first major solo show by young Hong-Kong artist Angela Yuen (1991). She showcases her three-dimensional sculptures, both kinetic and static, with their shadows projecting beautiful silhouettes of Hong Kong’s skyline, as well as her newly developed wall hanging installations that capture lively local street scenes. Yuen’s works are conceived as a study of the city’s history, “I choose plastic toys and manufactured objects as my medium because the material is imbued with symbolic meaning associated with the spirit, sweat and hardship of the local labour, and plastic manufactured objects serve as an iconic representation of Hong Kong’s manufacturing boom that shapes the early stages of the city’s modernization.” Yuen continues, “Hong Kong is ever- changing and progressing, and the rotating element in my kinetic works signifies Hong Kong as a city in constant evolution, from manufacturing hub to international financial and service centre.”
