LIU Tsz Ying
LIU Tsz Ying, Grace is a curious person who enjoys independently roaming different areas and disciplines in search for new discoveries which she may utilise for her projects. This attitude of hers also articulates in her creative practice in which she continuously explores new media and techniques across the boundaries between design and arts.
More recently, Grace became interested in applying creative work to life itself by experimentally combining artistic expression with found objects and typology. She enjoys stumbling on a random daily object and doing extensive research with creative approaches to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary. According to her philosophy, daily life and art are best wholly entwined.

This exhibition focuses on providing an experience to help to release one's unsaid feelings within the family through handwriting. This project aims to heal Hong Kong people's hearts through expressing the negative emotion, pressure and weight of one's own family problems. Also, bringing the blessing of harmony and strong bonding to families through the patchwork. This is inspired by the concept of “hundred families clothes”, it is traditional Chinese folk handicraft using the pieces of clothes from many different families to sew together. Children who wear the clothes may "borrow" luck, health and wealth from others so that they can grow up with the blessing. In our patchwork, we collect the stories from different families and weave the shredded papers to create “A hundred families papers”.
