Moving Bricks is an artist-in-residence programme that transformed an exhibition space of Cattle Depot Artist Village into a studio. In a series of six weekend workshops, local art group MUDwork in collaboration with nearby residents will create mobile installation carts of specific functions, with architectural features of the Cattle Depot Artist Village. The installation acts as a catalyst, it broadens the imagination and implementation of unconventional activities of humanities in a fluid way. And it forms a bustling view of the community.
At the end of the exhibition, the installation carts will become a public space of nearby residents or hawkers for further uses so as to organically extend their entities.
Founded by two Hong Kong artists Chung Wai Ian and Ng Ka Chun. MUDwork seeks to raise an alternative way of living through making objects.

One belongs where one is content
Mar 12, 2016 - May 13, 2016
Li Ka Shing, "One belongs where one is content."
Gui Min Hai, "One belongs where one is content."
Same wording, different contexts: leaving Hong Kongers perplexed in wildly contrasting ways. Li almost nonchalantly found a haven for his assets, thereby regaining his peace of mind. Gui, on the other hand, somehow achieved the improbable feat of secretly entering Mainland China via Thailand, adding fuel to the widely felt anxiety in Hong Kong regarding the intactness of ‘One Country, Two Systems’. While in China he recorded a video explaining that his covert trip was his way to find peace of mind, and urging the people of Hong Kong not to speculate and worsen the situation. Unfortunately, his effort was counterproductive and only presented yet another reason for Hong Kongers to feel even more alarmed.
‘To feel content’ and ‘to find a place where one belongs’: these have always been the ultimate concerns of ordinary citizens. The phrase ‘one belongs where one is content’ seems more and more clumsy and pathetic each time it reappears. It has become a copy of a copy, and in the process further distresses the audience.
One can’t help but notice the irony that whenever someone emphasises their contentment, it only creates more agitation and alarm. To disguise one’s unease with the facade of contentment: would this be the ordinary citizen’s ultimate compromise with fear? If the Hong Konger doesn’t belong to Hong Kong, where can they belong?
In this exhibition, artists Luke Ching and Ricky Yeung take the notions of contentment and belonging as the starting point of their explorations. Luke revisits and remakes his older works from his era of contentment, trying to demonstrate the possibility of attaining peace of mind at this time. Having been an impassioned teacher for decades, Ricky created a new work in which he denounces the school as an institution - one that has been half wrecked by National Education and its mutative forms and that is no longer a place of enlightenment where the young belongs.

Pseudo Collection - What Do Artists Collect
May 28, 2016 - Jul 22, 2016
Collection is Art – From Collecting to Collection
Everyone has a habit of collecting, be it a fetish, a memory or other reasons. Collecting is not merely about storing things up for daily life use, but an act when individuals gather, conserve and categorize objects for a piece of memory or appreciation. Not limited to collectors who buy valuable art works, the common people is able to afford collections to various extents, from fast food restaurants’ memorabilia to limited editions toys and sports shoes. These collectibles are not priceless in monetary value but important in another sense. They crystallize the lifestyle and culture of some individuals and specific communities.
With popularization of art fairs and collecting culture in this day and age, shall we have more imaginations and boundary-pushing practices towards “collection”? Possibilities and imaginations to “collection” are demonstrated in this exhibition via the showcase of artists’ collections.
Followed by the prosperity of art fairs, art collection exhibitions are also in vogue. Curators re-organize private art
Art, Collecting Art: Collections in the Eye of Artistscollectibles to reveal the cultural features under various artists, places and eras. In these exhibitions, the individual and collective meaning of the art collectibles, the personal meaning to collectors and the cultural meaning to the society overlaps and are being exposed to the public.
Artists like to collect, with different reasons. Some artists collect objects and turn them into creating materials, bringing new meanings to non-functional objects; while some artists collect art-related objects intuitionally, without any prerequisite. Obviously, the vision and attitude of collection are like an inspiration warehouse to be discovered. Then, how should we show artists’ collections?
Enoch Cheung, the initiator of this exhibition, was involved in a multi-media project “I Think It Rains” (2013) by a private collection Burger Collection and 1a space. He was impressed by the discussion of by the curator Daniel Kurjakovic and 1a space curating team, on the topic of the selection and exhibition of art
Pseudo, Collecting Art – The Display of Collection collectibles, the interaction among the artists, etc. Over the course of three years, Enoch hopes to further discuss different aspects of “collection”. He initiates this exhibition and invited multi-disciplinary artists to talk to and interact with in a series of activities, to explore the motivation and stories behind collecting, and to show their special collectibles or artworks inspired by the collectibles. The thoughts and logic of artists, presented by reasons and means of collecting are demonstrated in this exhibition. The name “Pseudo”, was interpreted as “man-made” on purpose (by disassembling the Chinese character), it emphasizes art lines in the process of collecting instead of the collectibles. Enoch is also a multi-disciplinary artist; he will engage in in-depth dialogues with artists, to explore the imaginations towards collecting together with viewers.

Where the End is the Beginning
Aug 19, 2016 - Aug 28, 2016
Hong Kong – Artist Matthew Tsang Man Fu is pleased to present his solo exhibition “Where the End is the Beginning.” Tsang is a Hong Kong artist who has shown in Hong Kong and overseas for nearly a decade. The artworks in this show were several years in the making and are the ongoing resolutions of experiments with process and materials and deep reflections on the nature and understanding of change. Here he reflects on the passage of time and explores how changes relate to decay, regeneration, hope and melancholy.
Curator Cordelia Tam explains that, “Tsang utilizes ordinary yet elemental materials from daily life, including wood, charcoal, wax, water and ice, and subjects them to naturally transformative processes such as burning, melting or freezing. The resulting objects, in their altered physical states, become metaphors for the relentless changes we all experience in our life, be they gradual, drastic, deliberate or accidental.”
In Before Collapse, Tsang utilized extreme heat by building a metal kiln in his workshop. In this kiln, he fired wooden household items and stationery, from tables and chairs to rolls of paper and pencils, turning them all into charcoal. The striking appearance of the “charcoalised” objects, still recognizable but with their robustness gone, now fragile and blackened, strive to provoke the viewer’s reflections on changes in their own lives.
Another key piece in this exhibition is the large installation, Time Drift, consisting of over a thousand pieces of aluminium foil bearing an array of colours from earthy browns to jewel like iridescences. The foil had been used as wrapping in the charcoal making process, but unexpectedly the firing resulted in old paint and varnishes staining the surface as they vaporized. Tsang realized that traces of energy and time had been captured in the burnt shards.
In other pieces, more mundane and gradual transformative processes were involved, such as ice melting in Ice Embers and Black Ice Dissolve. Yet the end results, through Tsang’s presentations, are equally thought provoking: decay is not necessarily ruin, time passes and things change, in our personal lives this may be poignant and feel relentless, but we in turn are part of a regenerative cycle that is bigger than our individual lives.
Tsang says, “Although my starting point is always my own personal experience, change is universal and I hope the themes trigger a resonance amongst all of us.”

The Aggregated Happiness - Collaborative Painting Workshop
In this difficult time of our city, the truth and the lies are not easy to differentiate. It is tough to cooperate, collaborate and move forward. Artist Clara Cheung will join hands with her silver-haired partner, Lee Miu Han (李妙嫻) to hold The Aggregated Happiness - Collaborative Painting Workshop and lead us back to the state of innocence and purity through art. We will go back to the origin of painting and enjoy the expressive power of color.
You are strongly suggested to bring your partners, families and relatives to join us. Each group will finish a collective painting.
Date: 18 September 2016 (Sunday)
Time: 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Address: 1a space, Unit 14, Cattle Depot Artist Village, 63 Ma Tau Kok Road, To Kwa Wan, Kowloon, Hong Kong
《As the leaves fall》is an very experimental collaboration art project curated by Grey and Green Ping Pong, the result going to be shown in 1a space from 9 Sept to 28 Oct. It aims to create a cross-age collaboration conditions, under social concern and creativity, artists would investigate the relationships between personal pain (fallen teeth) and social issues (e.g. Aging as a social problem and body decay) by using visual language. The project also aims to dig deeper about the meanings of collaboration and conversations, the possibilities and problems in achieving a balance and fair play of subjectivity with elderly during the creation processes.
The curator (Cally) believes that time cultivates quality conversation, of which she had invited seven artists and seven elderlies to join a one-on-one pair-up Collaboration Art Project《As the leaves fall》since February 2016.
The project is divided into two phases; the first phase is the Workshop of “Exchange Happiness”. As a starting point, participating artists share their favorite spots or leisure activities with their matching elderlies. Work-in-progress activities includes karaoke, hiking and ‘treasure hunt’ in Sham Shui Po. Concurrently, participating elderlies also shared their enjoyable spots or activities with their matching artists, such as practicing Tai Chi in the park, gardening at a lawn, have a Yum Cha gathering and weaving at home, etc. By participating in each other’s daily life, artists morph into attempt to get a firsthand experience and association with elderlies’ daily life condition.
The second phase is the creation part. Taking “as the leaves fall” as the theme, both parties will collaborate and create. Artist may initiate their personal creation in response to their experiences or dialogues with the elderlies. “Teeth falling out” could be taken as an imagery, a real life situation or the beginning of stories. To commence a fair, just and consistent conversation and develop mutual understanding is the beauty of Collaboration Art. It is the crux to widen the social imagination by poetic artlang (artistic language), to recognize the entanglement of body and self-identity, and to understand the relations between transformation/ decay of body and personal speculation to the social condition.

Founder of Grey and Green Ping Pong
The prevalence of tooth loss in seniors severely affects their daily lives. According to the Oral Health Survey (OHS) 2011 published by the Department of Health, there are 5.6 % of non-institutionalized seniors with no teeth. With a base of 450,800, there are 25,245 toothless seniors in Hong Kong excluding those in the age above 75. Meanwhile, the tooth loss conditions of seniors of the Social Welfare Department long-term care services were even worse. About 20% to 30% of them had no teeth at all. Each had 9.4 remaining teeth on average. The unaffordable dentistry is the main cause of this situation.
About “Grey and Green Ping Pong Project”
Established in 2013, the project aims at establishing a conversational platform, by using artistic force and creative workshops, for the grey and green generations to exchange ideas and share stories, fun alike playing ping pong game, which is an equal-based, two-way, ordinary, easy and embodied interaction.
Workshops provided by us will be multidisciplinary, e.g painting, improvisation dance, film-going etc, in hopes that, new artistic experience can release elder’s creativity, curiosity and imagination. Elderly identity and subjectivity would be the keywords during all the processes. Creative Aging is our mission.
In addition, the project also want to develop/discover new aesthetic from the amateur elderly artists. If grey have their own sensitive and stories, would there is a special elderly artistic narratives? How we review those works in aesthetic senses? Can we develop a new critic language to see the elderly community art works?
This project is curated by Cally Yu and thanks for all supports from independent donors and friends to make the project come true.

Constructed in 1908, Cattle Depot Artist Village witnesses the changes of the city. From slaughterhouse (abattoir) and quarantine base to an artist village, Cattle Depot had been restored and revitalized with the historical monuments.

“Islands’ Narrative: Literature X Visual Art” Exhibition
Organized by the House of Hong Kong Literature and funded by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, the second "Hong Kong Literature Season" is launched during October to December 2016. The theme of this year's Hong Kong Literature Season is “Literature love/very/good to Nature". The exploration of natural scenery, as well as living feelings, has always been a source of inspiration for literary and creation. The isolation and connection among the islands can also serve as a metaphor for art. The Hong Kong landscape is very unique, island is one of the local characteristics. The Hong Kong Literature Season will select six islands as the study objects. Six pairs of writers and visual artists will be invited to collaborate for cross-media dialogues in the way of literature and visual arts creation in order to show the multi-sensory relationship between the nature, literature and visual art.
The exhibition will be held from 12th Nov to 23rd Dec in 1a space. The exhibition will show different dimensions of history, tourism, living, humanities, natural wilderness and ecological species of the islands. The islands became the junctions of writers and artists. They could explored the possibility of cross/multi-disciplinary dialogue through the islands. The possibility of dialogue is the existence of differences. The differences could cause infinite creations and changes, and will always lead to the process of “becoming” where the dialectics of concept, history and reality will be emerged. The island is not the end to reach, is just the beginning.
