LAU Ka Yu's artworks encompass installation, wearables, jewellery, glass, video, and photography. She wishes to explore old items or traditional concepts with contemporary forms and perspectives. She believes art has the capacity to heal, both the audience and the creator, especially in the stressful world we live in.

People have the tendency to avoid and forget certain taboo topics and old memories, as if to escape from their past. However, the future cannot be built without learning from the past, which is where LAU's works are situated in and created from – the intimate space that connects the past and the future. Within this liminal space of now, LAU reuses the past, through objects or concepts, to project and emerge with new meaning, forms and practices.

劉嘉鍮的藝術創作範圍多元,涵蓋裝置藝術、服裝、首飾、玻璃、影片和相片等。她的作品均以「轉化」為核心,以藝術角度觀察周遭事物的她,認為藝術能夠治愈觀眾及創作者。她期望觀眾在欣賞的過程中得到特別的體驗,為一些舊東西或舊思想賦予另類的形態和意義。

同時,劉嘉鍮發現世人習慣於遺棄與遺忘禁忌的思想及回憶。但她深信無論是過去抑或未來,兩者都存在著緊密的關係,不吸取過去的教訓便無法建立未來。因此,物件也好、意念也罷,她也致力於透過為這些「過去」塑造出各種新的型態,給予新的意義,令過去得以延續。她著力以藝術的形式向人們宣揚這個概念。將逐漸逝去的回憶透過創作重現呈現,就是她創作的理由。

Wave to Escape

Many things are like waves, hitting again and again. Those things let people lose their peace of mind. Putting the negative emotions in nature can get a period of calmness.

Society always sets different norms for females. Bra, as a wearable only for women, binds them both physically and mentally. To break through the old fetters about females, a bra goes through a deconstruction of structure and function, and transforms into a new wearable bag. These reconstructs their functions and meaning in order to strengthen female’s self-identity.
