General

Make a "Tree" and Bring it Home

Aside from being dumped in landfills, are there any other uses for fallen branches? What process do these branches go through before they can be reused?

Tai Kwun would like to invite you to "upcycle" with artist Ng Ka Chun. We will make good use of the branches collected from the mango tree and transforming them into a "tree" that you can bring home. Through this transformational meditation process, we try to build an intimate relationship with the tree.

Notes:

- Includes a 30-minute guided tour of the exhibition

- Tai Kwun will provide the materials and tools

- Conducted in Cantonese
