LAU Ka Yu
LAU Ka Yu's artworks encompass installation, wearables, jewellery, glass, video, and photography. She wishes to explore old items or traditional concepts with contemporary forms and perspectives. She believes art has the capacity to heal, both the audience and the creator, especially in the stressful world we live in.
People have the tendency to avoid and forget certain taboo topics and old memories, as if to escape from their past. However, the future cannot be built without learning from the past, which is where LAU's works are situated in and created from – the intimate space that connects the past and the future. Within this liminal space of now, LAU reuses the past, through objects or concepts, to project and emerge with new meaning, forms and practices.
Wave to Escape
Many things are like waves, hitting again and again. Those things let people lose their peace of mind. Putting the negative emotions in nature can get a period of calmness.
