Art can be seen as a poem without words. Building an art installation isn’t just putting pieces together in a plot, the expression of the meanings and ideas are all in the details required meticulous craftsmanship and care.

Murakami vs Murakami

Curated by Gunnar B. Kvaran, Director of Astrup Fearnley Museet (Oslo, Norway) and Tobias Berger, Head of Art at Hong Kong Tai Kwun, MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMI – a major survey exhibition of the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, which opened from June to September 2019 in Hong Kong.

The exhibition featured divergent extremes of the artist’s oeuvre from his large-scale post-apocalyptic works to his optimistic flower pieces, and then to his contemplative Enso paintings, offering Buddhist visions of enlightenment.

Be@rbrick

A designer toy designed and produced by the Japanese company MediCom Toy Incorporated. Be@rbrick is an anthropomorphized bear with an extremely simplified form and a pot belly.

Many contemporary artists and designers from all over the world have designed figures. Designing a Bearbrick figure means creating a design scheme, or deco, for the standard mold. Contributors range from visual artists such as H. R. Giger to Pushead, Stash, and even fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, Vivienne Westwood and Ivana Helsinki.

This was a show that we curated in Macau in 2019.

Work guided by passion

Working with all these unique masterpieces elevates our character. The mission was indeed challenging, but it keeps our technique and sensitivity in pace with the sense of contemporary. The pleasure is all ours.
