CHONG Pui Kiu, Cloris is an interdisciplinary visual artist who practices sculpture, glass, and graphic design. To her, working creatively isn’t a practice to only satisfy herself, but it should be used to share meaning with the community. As such, she believes visual arts is a language to raise personal and societal issues and create awareness and resonance with the audience.
The tissue box

The message of rescaling a tissue box is to remind people not to enlarge their sadness. People can easily magnify their obstacles and bitterness in life. I hope people can deliberate once more when they see the size of the tissue box is rescaled. I brought my artwork onto the street because I want to remind people about the joy of life. These photos were taken in the old district of Hong Kong, To Kwa Wan, where I wish to bring happiness and positivity into this area. I put the tissue box near the public facilities to emphasise the relationship between the community and the artwork.
