"Water Dialogue"


2018 | Exhibition | PMQ


Hanzi Exhibition explores the changes, development and future of hanzi through its interaction with modern social life, its meaning transformation and the influences of new technologies. With graphic design as its core, the exhibition showcases works featuring Chinese character(s) as the main visual element, and by creative minds from regions where hanzi is still being used — Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, Korea and Mainland China.

About the CHARACTER

Chinese Character:
Artist: UUendy Lau
Statement: The character, associated with rain and aesthetics in Chinese culture, symbolises the exquisite pattern of clouds. The exploration on my name, given by my family since I was born, offers a new perspective to re-interpret the relationship, interaction and imagination between humans and nature through dissecting the structure, terminology and visual arrangement of the Chinese character.
