The ‘x’ in the exhibition title means the multiplication of nine young artists’ efforts in thinking about nine crafts, while the word「承」(sing) in the Chinese title means ‘inheriting and accepting’, as suggested by Shuowen Jiezi, a Chinese dictionary from the Han dynasty. Nine local artists from the Post-90s generation realised the diminishing of craftsmanship in Hong Kong and so, initiated the learning from masters of various disciplines, including bamboo weaving, etching, letterpress, incense making, moulding, embroidery, paper mache lion masks, glass art and blue-and-white porcelain. The exhibition displays the artists’ interpretation of traditional crafts in their young and refreshing ways. The multiplication is infinite as the artists inherit the craftsmanship and the learning and sharing among masters, artists and visitors never end.
