“Pushing Monster” Workshop

In partnership with: Liv Tsim and Vangi Fong

Kids collect materials through the ‘Collector’ game then play with these materials and different textures to create a “pushing monster”, as a way to learn more about artist Ha Bik Chuen’s practice, collecting processes, and making a sculpture.


Partners

MUDWORK, an art and design studio founded by artists Chung Wai Ian and Ng Ka Chun in 2013, explores the contemporary situation of city space, and community and nature through sculpture/installation. In recent years, they have participated in several public/community art projects including Art in MTR, “Hi! Hill”, M+ Rover and more. Their work “Cement Ping Pong Table” was selected as part of “Public Art Scheme 2015” by the Project of Art Promotion Office.

Liv TSIM received her bachelor’s training at Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). Her work have been exhibited internationally, including: The 1st Hong Kong-Shenzhen Design Biennale (Shenzhen); “Symposium: Beyond the Sound ” in French May Art Festival (Hong Kong); “Handle with Care” (Berlin); “The Edge Mini” (Brisbane); “Outside the Dwelling” (Hungary); among others. In 2020, her winning proposal, “Invasion Invader” was selected forthe Open Call of Art Future hosted by 1a space. Tsim’s practice emphasises an experience of space through organic material by sensation, under the concept of Epistemology. She is fond of exploring the inner connection between organisms, their value in society, and the relationship of species with nature. In challenging biological essence, Tsim transfers their limitations into playful and critical creations. www.livtsim.com
