"Kiss Me"


2015 | Exhibition and Auction | Magis


Artist: UUendy Lau 
Medium: Artificial grass, Plastic, Wire, and Felt



About the EXHIBITION

Every year in Hong Kong, there are more than 10,000 abandoned dogs and puppies officially destroyed, with a further unknown number die from disease or starvation. Owning a dog definitely is not for a moment of entertainment, it requires a commitment that needs to last for a lifetime. Hence, in December 2015, MAGIS and NPV (Non-Profit Making Veterinary Services Society) will collaborate a dog charity event with the symbolic meaning of “Tie The Knot” – a lasting unity as slogan, so to encourage human to tie the knot and promise their dogs with an ever-lasting relationship.

Date: 1 Dec - 31 Dec 2015
Venue: Magis Store, G/F, 28 Gough Street, Central HK
Theme: Tie The Knot. A lifelong Promise.



About the DESIGN

Magis has invited several local artists and designers to design the Magis Puppy which will be exhibited in the gallery and sold by auction. 100% of the money will be donated to NPV.

The artwork “Kiss Me” was made to enhance the interaction between the audience and the Magis Puppy. An installation was created and set up inside the hollow space of Magis Puppy. When people walk closer, they will discover the hint with curiosity. When they squat and try to take a closer look at the installation inside, it resembles people “kissing” and “cuddling” the Puppy. It reminds us to show our deepest love to our pets as a lifelong partner, and to understand what the pets want and need. All they want is to be loved and accompanied.

To love. To listen. To hug. To kiss. And to CARE.


















About the INSPIRATION

It is all inspired by how we interact with our puppy (or pets).
How often do we look at them?
When was our last time we talk and fondle them?
And cuddle them?
