Fill in the Space: mirare
Apr 22, 2022 – Jun 19, 2022
mirare is the finale of the Fill in the Space Joint Exhibition Series that showcases works by Meko Cheng and Jessica Fu from 22 April to 19 June 2022.
The FITS programme starts with a residency at Cattle Depot, and is going to end with a Cattle Depot-themed exhibition. The exhibition mirare recreates space by producing installations that connect with the architectural characteristics of Cattle Depot, in response to its history and transformation as a slaughterhouse to an arts village. Meko produces balanced and structured installations to trigger imagination, guiding the audience through discovering, observing, and entering an illusory reality; Jessica uses projection to create immersive experiences in an attempt to encourage reflections on the current human condition.
Participating Artists (in alphabetical order)
Meko Cheng received her B.A fine art from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2019. Her work is about representation of material, weight and physical manifestation. Through its balanced structure, the material shows a limited relationship with time. Therefore, her works are often in a state of balance and imbalance, calmness and flow, showing the tension and contrast of materials.
Jessica Fu received her Master of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She experiments with formlessness material and its metaphor to ask the philosophical question, “What is reality” through site-specific works. Her work has been exhibited internationally since 2010. Currently she teaches part-time at various institutions in Hong Kong.
