Wong Ka Man Millison
WONG Ka Man, Millison is conscious of the social dynamics, especially the relationship between humanity and the surroundings through daily observation. Her dedication to craft emphasises the characteristics of human nature. Her works are often in metal from small objects to large sculptures, depending on the subject matter and the functionality that correspond to her ideology. Metal is sensitive to the environment, like humans do. In her artworks, the use of metal builds a sensible connection between humans and the objects she made.
Sculpture, plaster, steel
The cycle of life and death is inevitable. While life is full of curiosity, death is about imagination. The outbreak of the Coronavirus Disease reminds me of the matter of death. Humans basically consist of two parts: body and soul. The body depicts one’s silhouette and appearance. The soul carries one’s personalities and emotions. When it comes to the end of life, one’s “body” would be worn out and quietly disappear. On the other hand, the “soul” would be separated from the “body”.Perished explores the moment of death. The “body” on the ground is rotten, meanwhile, the “soul” in the air is leaving the physical body.
