Crafts on Peel’s first thematic exhibition, IMAGINE THE ‘IM’POSSIBILITIES: BAMBOO, will present the work of ten artisans from Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong, whose practices specialize in reinventing the traditions of bamboo craft. The exhibition and accompanying programming will run from 26 September through to 31 December 2020.
An extension of Crafts on Peel’s inaugural exhibition, IMAGINE THE ‘IM’POSSIBILITIES: BAMBOO, stems from long-term research into contemporary bamboo craftsmanship in Asia. Co-curated by Penelope Luk, Creative Director of Crafts on Peel, and Benjamin Wang, Contemporary Artisan from Taiwan, the exhibition takes visitors on an interactive journey divided into three key sections that explore the utilitarian elements, contemporary aesthetics and traditional craftsmanship of bamboo. Each section draws attention to the texture, form and natural qualities of bamboo, as well as the processes and historical context that have shaped our engagement with the material over thousands of years.
Located in a historic building in the heart of Hong Kong, Crafts on Peel is a charitable organization to revive, reinterpret and perpetuate traditional craftsman-ship by fostering collaborations between traditional craftsmen and contemporary artisans through apprenticeship and exchange of techniques. With the aim of nurturing the younger generations to incorporate traditional skills into innovative contemporary designs, to breathe new life into traditional crafts so that the values of traditional craftsmanship can be integrated to our times.
