Episode of “Flowers’ Reincarnation”
材質：陶瓷 Media: Ceramics
Artwork Description: Episode of “Flowers’ Reincarnation” may be viewed as the extension of my works “Reincarnation” in 2014 that featured fallen leafs. Flowers are shorter-lived than leafs, but look more elegant. Even having fallen and withered flowers still display different faces of beauty. In the episode of “Flowers’ Reincarnation”, I have collected dozens of species of flowers in Macao and Hong Kong to produce these dishes. Some of the flowers were picked up from the ground after falling down, some withering on exhibition display, some disposed in the wake of special events, some from students’ homework. Some flowers grew in Macao and Hong Kong, and others from elsewhere. Behind these flowers are the evolution of the flowers and transformation through urbanization. Are these ceramics the only remains in the end?
6075 Artist: Bella Tam

The French term for still life, meaning ‘dead nature’. Since objective space doesn’t exist in human’s perspective, all beings will begin to create a new language within dialogues; flower ceases to be a flower, a body and the flesh, they become equals coexisting in its own right and space. Photography turns this glimpse of time and life into physical images which transcend linear pathway, only in the attempt to understand the ambiguity between the living and the dead.
6075 Artist: Lai Siu Kit
Born in Macau, Director of Art for All Society (Macau), Vice-Director of Macau Artist Society, Director of Macau Artist Society Youth Committee. In the past decade, he has held more than a dozen solo exhibitions in places such as Macau, Beijing, Shanghai and Portugal. His works have been collected by Macau Cultural Bureau, Macau Museum of Art and other personal collectors.
All that Remains are Memories
Media: Oil on Canvas
All that remains are memories is Lai’s latest works, a transcended version of what he has been painting – old-fashioned bricks and tiles, and that has become part of Lai’s unique painting language and symbols. Unlike the past, the audience needs to be more sensible and patient to appreciate his works. The objects he paints are no longer items we can name at one glance, such as a piece of rusty and rotten metal, bricks with nostalgic patterns, or moss-covered red tiles. The intriguing composition of colours in his paintings often urges us to think out of the box and be free from what we have perceived well. It also shows that Lai purely enjoys going back and forth between rationality and improvisation of how he plays with the colours as an artist, from which he attempts to trace back to the pleasure or irritability during his creative process.
